Canadian students resume protests

Rally staged in Montreal against tuition-fee increases as unions focus on country's next parliamentary election.

    Thousands of university students in the Canadian city of Montreal have marched against planned tuition-fee increases.

    Student unions voted against boycotting classes as a form of protest earlier this week, and many are now focusing their attention on the country's next parliamentary election, set to take place on September 4 in Quebec.
