Currently, the response towards negotiations is cold, according to a press aide for Education Minister Michelle Courchesne. The aide, Kimberly Labar, said that the issue of grants to poor students has already been addressed.
President of the Federation etudiante collegiale du Quebec, Eliane Laberge, said that a using mediators “is the only means to end the strike.” She said that no one should be ashamed of the process.
She said that a team of three mediators would be beneficial to all the parties. They could help the negotiations and bring both sides of the dispute together. She recommended that the Quebec Bar or the Institut de Mediation et d’Arbitage du Quebec oversee the process.
As far as the strike is concerned, less than one hundred people attended.
