85 arrested as Canadian students protest tuition

85 arrested as Canadian students smash windows, protest tuition increases By The Associated Press

MONTREAL (AP) ' Police in Canada say 85 people have been arrested after thousands of students angry over tuition increases smashed windows in Montreal in a latest round of protests.

The rioting came after talks broke off Wednesday between the Quebec provincial government and student groups over the planned tuition increase of $375 a year.

The talks broke off after the government ejected the most militant student group from the discussions.

Students swarmed the streets and fought with police over several hours. A police station, banks and other businesses had windows shattered.

Polls indicate Quebecers generally support the fee hikes.
