Montreal Police arrest 60 people

Students invaded hotel and set off "pyrotechnic device"

About 60 people who were part of a group demonstrating against tuition fees were arrested in Montreal today, reports The Canadian Press. Montreal Police said via Twitter that protesters engaged in mischief, including incidents at the Eaton Centre and Queen Elizabeth Hotel, where they overturned tables, broke dishes and set off a “pyrotechnic device.” Many student groups in Quebec are opposed to a tuition increase of $1,625 over the next five years. Some have promised to disrupt the economy if their demands aren’t met.
