Candidate for PQ leadership wraps himself in the Fleur de Lys
Parti Quebecois leadership candidate Paul St-Pierre Plamondon has pledged that if he becomes the next leader of the party he will ensure that its election platform include a provision to ensure that all Quebec flags are made in Quebec.
St-Pierre Plamondon tells the Journal de Montreal that he is tired of seeing Quebec flags for sale at Jean Coutu outlets which have been made in China and distributed by a company from Ontario.
He also promises a law to make it mandatory for a Quebec flag to be displayed in all elementary and high school classrooms.
The legislation would include a provision calling for a fine for anyone who displays a faded or frayed Quebec flag in public.
The PQ campaign runs until October 8.
