Students in Canada, who have been holding regular protests over a hike in tuition fees, are now turning their anger on the Formula 1 Grand Prix that takes place in Montreal on Sunday.

After an afternoon confronting police in the city, during the night protesters stripped off to denounce the Grand Prix as sexist. In all, 39 people were arrested.

The protests, which have been going on for several months, have hit tourism hard say those for whom Formula 1 week is normally the busiest of the year.

As for Canadian-born former Formula 1 champion, Jacques Villeneuve, he told reporters it had gone on long enough. “It’s time for people to wake up and stop loafing about,” he said.
