On Nov. 6, Ryerson students gathered for a one-day student strike across Toronto. The day of action began with a soft picket line in front of the Sheldon & Tracy Levy Student Learning Centre, followed by a rally outside of the Student Campus Centre. Then, the strike culminated in a march that spread to the intersection of Yonge and Dundas streets, OCAD University and finally Queen’s Park. Support was shown from students, faculty and even Ontario representatives who were present at the day of action.
