Despite the introduction of a new law aimed at ending three months of protests against proposed tuition fee increases, demonstrations have continued in Canadian city of Montreal. About 300 people were arrested Monday, and 10 were injured authorities said. Even with Quebec's provincial government having passed an emergency law on Friday restricting protests, including a requirement that police be informed eight hours before and told the route of any demonstration that includes 50 or more people, the protests continue. However, Authorities had declared the protest "illegal" minutes after it began because organisers had not given police advance warning as required by the new law enacted on Friday.
