The line between protest and protection at the University of Sherbrooke
Our townships correspondent Alison Brunette brings us the latest on a story about a recent protest at the University of Sherbrooke. A small group of students wants to know why they were fined nearly $150 by municipal police force a few weeks ago. They were charged with causing a public disturbance during a small, on-campus lecture by Jean Charest.
The students say they have a right to free speech. The police say they had a duty to provide security for the premier.
