This is the first argument that I've seen for the tuition increase that is actually 1. An argument 2. Convincing. Am I missing something? It all seems pretty simple, how come this hasn't been brought up by the government or the media? If it really is that simple, it only further highlights the government's incompetency in dealing with the issue.

Clusterfuck in Montreal

I'm assuming you guys saw this already, I just want your opinions. This one's gruesome: This one has a nice vantage point: I figure everyone should have behaved better. I think the taxi driver is in deep shit, legally speaking. He had many chances to flee and did not and from the balcony video, it really looks like he repeatedly tries to hit the people. I think the judge is going to nail him for not fleeing when he had the chances to. I understand that it must have been a more than frightening situation, not to mention quite confusing and I would not wish it on my worst enemy. I also can't say I wouldn't have done the same. However, such behaviour remains illegal, immoral and unacceptable.

As for the hoodlums involved in this, I don't know what happened to get them so angry (i.e. previous to the start of the videos), but their behaviour is also illegal, immoral and unacceptable. It was also downright stupid and I try to only use the word stupid for darwin award-like situations such as these. 

Cynical moral of the story: Don't fight against steel machines when you only have clothes to protect you.

Real moral of the story: When dealing with violent strangers, fleeing is often times more advisable. You don't know the limits to their sanity and reason.
