June 10 Demo in Quebec City

Buses will arrive between 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Grande Allée, near the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (MNBAQ). Buses must arrive from the west to access the drop-off zone (see attached site map). Stewards will board the buses as they arrive on site to explain the procedure. Buses will then leave the drop-off zone, via Rue du Parc and Rue des Érables, and park in their assigned area. The march to the National Assembly is expected to begin around 1:00 p.m.

Cars (carpooling)

Participants who are carpooling are invited to use the various public parking lots in the area. The Service de police de la Ville de Québec (SPVQ) specifically recommends that they use the Marie-Guyart and Place d’Youville parking lots, so as to be able to leave quickly after the end of the rally. The Marie-Guyart parking lot alone has over 1,000 spaces. Here are the coordinates of the two suggested parking lots: 

Marie-Guyart parking lot
1050 Rue Louis-Alexandre-Taschereau
Quebec City, Quebec  G1R 5E6

Place d’Youville parking lot
965 Rue d’Youville
Quebec City, Quebec  G1R 3P1

National Assembly grounds

Upon their arrival in front of the National Assembly, teachers will be greeted by a band performing live on stage. The musical show will be followed by a short presentation by Prof, ma fierté! spokesperson Pierre Hébert and speeches by various union representatives. A huge tent will also be put up on the site to allow unions and teachers who wish to do so to take part in a large-scale collective personal work session. Finally, a bouncy castle and a face-painting service will be available to entertain children accompanying their parents.

Please note that while no food will be provided on site, a water refill station will be available for filling plastic or reusable water bottles. Out of a concern for the environment, plastic bottles will not be distributed. 

Twenty portable toilets will be available to participants.

Mobilization material

It is asked that teachers wear their Here we are! themed buffs or other items and to avoid the colours and visual identity of the Common Front.  Banners and Here we are! flags, as well as signs, flags and banners in the local union’s colours are also welcome!

Thank you for your collaboration. We look forward to seeing you marching the streets of Quebec City on June 10
