This is the first edition of Unofficial Transcript Radio, a series of newscasts focussing on the Canadian student movement.

Quebec students say the Education Ministry owes them $35 million 

The fate of millions of dollars in federal money transferred to Quebec appears to be in limbo. Student leaders say that money should be in the hands of students who need bursaries for their education. A report back from the March 11 protest. 

New research policy conceals weapons research at McGill University

The activist group Demilitarize McGill has been campaigning for greater transparency in the financial relations between military agencies and research groups that help them to develop deadly weapons. On March 24, the McGill Senate adopted a new research policy that effectively rejected the terms of Demilitarize McGill, and the activists are now calling for direct action.

Student leaders fight tuition hikes in Quebec

Two student leaders speak about the trend towards higher tuition fees in Quebec and argue for alternatives: Christian Pépin, Coordinating Secretary of the Association pour une solidarité syndicale étudiante (ASSÉ) and Sebastian Ronderos-Morgan, Vice President of External Affairs for the Students Society of McGill University (SSMU).

Reports by David Koch. These reports are made possible with funding from the Canadian Federation of Students-Quebec (CFSQ).
