OTTAWA—After discussion of starting a “unlimited student strike” in Ontario beginning in the fall semester, students at University of Ottawa students are occupying the university president’s office, demanding a reversal of tuition fee increases. Thirty students are currently barricading administrative offices at the university with reports of neighboring Quebec students from Gatineau moving way to support.

More than 200 members of the Canadian Federation of Students have petitioned their federation to call an Ontario-wide strike vote this fall in order to show solidarity with students in Quebec.

The petition currently includes 211 signatures.
