OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) ' Quebec college and university students and the provincial government have returned to the bargaining table in an attempt to put an end to a months- long dispute over tuition hikes that has led to clashes with police and mass arrests.
Student leaders said Monday the tuition hike and an emergency law put in place to limit protests would have to be on the table. The two sides are meeting in Quebec City.
Students have called for a tuition freeze but the government has ruled out that possibility. The French-speaking province's average undergraduate tuition ' $2,519 a year ' is the lowest in Canada, and the proposed hike' $254 per year over seven years ' is tiny by U.S. standards.
More than 2,500 students have been arrested since the demonstrations began.
