Pauline Marois is vowing to take a firm stance against the accommodation of religious minorities.

At her party's conference in Drummondville, she also pledged to her supporters that she will block access to English private schools.

"We will deal with this once and for all," she said about reasonable accommodation. "Quebec's values must be respected."

Her declaration pulled the 400 delegates to their feet. Their applause rang out in approval during their 30-second standing ovation.

Marois' commitment to restrict English private schools was nearly as popular. She told supporters she would close off access to so-called bridging schools.

"If I have to turn to the notwithstanding clause, I won't be shy," she said, to another burst of applause.

Marois also pledged to promote sovereignty.
