MONTREAL - The face of Quebec's largest student federation, Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois faced a personal fight over the past month as Quebec's rental board signed off on an eviction order against him
Serving as the voice of the Coalition large de l'Association pour une solidarité syndicale étudiante since the student boycott started, Nadeau-Dubois' landlord obtained an order from the Régie du logement on May 16 to evict the 21-year-old for $1,900 of unpaid rent.
According to the judgement, Nadeau-Dubois and his roommates failed to pay two months rent—at $950 a month—and need to reimburse landlord David Francisco for some legal fees.
According to the student leader, an envelope of money was left in the landlord's mailbox. Nadeau-Dubois argued that he had a long history of Francisco not providing the legally required receipt.
Nadeau-Dubois has yet to confirm if he and his roommates have vacated the apartment.
