55 Years Ago Transit Riot in Montreal
Photos: The 1955 Montreal tram riot
On Dec. 9, 1955, Montreal university students marched to city hall to protest an increase in tram fares. But what started out as a peaceful demonstration soon turned into a violent riot, causing a great deal of damage and forcing all trams and buses off the streets.
......why is it always students who start the riots ? HF&RV Cheers ! - Les
