CFN– On February 1st , students from across Canada gathered to take part in a collective protest against the high cost of tuition fees. This protest is known as the National Student Day of Action and this year students in Ottawa and the surrounding area united on Parliament Hill; the location on which the protest is held every year.
The police were on location for when the students got to the site of the protest to keep the peace just in case things got out of hand. As well, certain Colleges and Universities granted academic amnesty on that day so that the students could freely participate without facing penalties from being absent.
If a student were to have missed any quizzes or tests because of their choice to participate in the protest their Professors were to provide them the opportunity to take the test or quiz at a different time.
