|Manif tout nu|
I'm not alone in thinking that the government could have averted the injuries, arrests and damages to public property, not to mention the waste of public resources, if it had just sat down with the students a long time ago. Mr. Charest's poor judgment only made the students look better. Besides being articulate and tech savvy, the students were extremely well organized. No longer can anyone say that this generation is a bunch of spoiled individualists. If anything they've made it abundantly clear that those in high places are the ones with a monopoly over the much-bandied insult--entitlement. In fact, this student movement may have helped some of the students hone some hands-on organizational, public speaking and leadership skills that might not have otherwise been developed in class. Check out the translated kinetic typography speech of Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois, one of the most vocal leaders of CLASSE, the more demanding of the student unions. I hear a great leader in this voice. What about you?
