About 150 stu­dents from L’École sec­ondaire catholique Le Re­lais and about 65 stu­dents at Glen­garry Dis­trict High School in Alexan­dria walked out of classes Wed­nes­day to join a prov­ince-wide demon­stra­tion against the On­tario gov­ern­ment’s ed­u­ca­tion re­forms. While GDHS stu­dents re­mained on school prop­erty, Le Re­lais stu­dents pa­raded along Main Street and held a vocal and colour­ful protest at the North Glen­garry town­ship hall. Mean­while, al­though the ac­tion drew mixed re­views, there talk of an “Ed­u­ca­tion is Free­dom” move­ment tak­ing shape. De­tails in­side.
