Kippas with a message
A Côte Saint-Luc man is using humour and irony to express his displeasure with the PQ's controversial Charter of Values.
Samuel Durgel said he was listening to the announcement on Tuesday.
"It bothered me," said Durgel who decided to set up a website, pqkippa.com to sell $18 kippas with the PQ party logo on them.
"This was a form of expression for me," Durgel told CJAD 800 News.
"The message is, I always thought Quebec values were about tolerance and diversity and that's really what it should be about."
Some are saying it's a fake website but Durgel said it's very real. He said he's got a manufacturer and over a dozen orders already and close to 500 Facebook likes.
"It's not about making money on this. It's really about sharing and expressing what people feel and if people feel it's important to wear it, they should go ahead and do so," Durgel said.
Durgel, a 43-year-old accountant by training, added he's sending his message with tongue firmly in cheek.
"It's funny and it should be funny. Humour is one of the expressions of people when they're either happy or maybe a little bit scared, and trying to make themselves feel a little bit better."
