PQ plans include fixed election dates and kindergarten for 4-year-olds
Public financing for political parties, and the creation of public kindergarden for 4-year olds are just a few of the things the Premier Pauline Marois says she wants to achieve over the next few years.
She delivered her party's inaugural speech in the National Assembly this afternoon.
She's come out of the blocks against corruption. She says she wants to limit the amount of time a premier can stay in office and explore the possibility of term limits for mayors, allowing them remain in office for a maximum of 3 terms.
Marois says she'll look at how to clean up political financing on the municipal scene. She wants to introduce public financing for political parties and set fixed election dates.
And, Marois says she'll introduce an educational program for 4-year olds.
Marois is offering up a consultation on a secularism charter and Quebec citizenship and and she's asking for opposition support in drafting a new charter for the French language.
There's no mention of Bill 101 and CEGEPs in her speech, but Marois does say she wants to promote sovereignty and is listing a number of new powers she wants from Ottawa.
