Montreal police arrested 10 people at a university today as students staged more protests on the second day of classes.
A spokesman for the city's police department says six women and four men face charges of assaulting officers and security guards at Universite de Montreal.
The alleged incidents took place near the spot where masked protesters clashed with police and security agents yesterday.
Montreal police briefly detained 19 people yesterday at the university for violating provisions of the province's controversial new protest law.
Bill 78 sets out stiff penalties for protesters who block schools or who fail to provide police with their demonstration itinerary eights hours in advance.
Dozens of demonstrators forced class cancellations yesterday as school resumed at Quebec universities.
