On Tuesday, April 8th, Off the Hour was joined live by Benjamin Gingras, co-spokesperson from the Association pour une solidarite syndicale etudiante, or ASSE. ASSE played an important role in organizing against the proposed tuition hikes in 2012, an issue that sparked a widespread social movement that went beyond the issue of tuition hikes and brought hundreds of thousands of protesters into the street.

Benjamin Gingras from talks about the elections. After the Liberals sweeped into a majority government on April 7th, we asked Gingras what’s changed, but most of all, what hasn’t – and what’s coming next for ASSE and grassroots action in the wake of the elections.
