PQ Congress: the pressure builds
The are rumbles of discontent as Pauline Marois heads toward a party congress that kicks off tonight.
Protestors will clamour outside, while some of the PQ's members will pressure the government from within.
Last week, five members of the PQ's Maskinongé riding association resigned en-masse, with complaints over the party's lack of progress towards independence and Pauline Marois' decisions in government.
The party may attempt to appease some of those concerns when it unveils its action plan for achieving sovereignty on Saturday afternoon.
Clash over tuition
The PQ's youth wing plans to de-rail the Marois governments' delicate position on tuition fees. Reports say the group may table an urgent motion for the PQ to consider free tuition at the upcoming summit on education. That motion could come to a vote on Sunday morning.
So far, the higher education minister has insisted that free tuition is not a foreseeable option for his government.
A thousand protestors also plan to great the party outside the congress on Saturday morning.
