85 arrested as Canadian students protest tuition

Thousands of students angry over tuition increases protested in Montreal, with some smashing windows of businesses

MONTREAL — Police in Canada say 85 people have been arrested after thousands of students angry over tuition increases protested in Montreal, with some smashing windows of businesses.

The rioting came after talks broke off Wednesday between the Quebec provincial government and student groups over the planned tuition increase of $325 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.
