The PQ's plan to impose a fixed-price for books may be dead before it starts.
The Liberals now say they are also against it, and the CAQ has been opposed to the idea from the beginning.
This leaves the Parti Quebecois stranded without the support it needs to pass any such legislation.
"It has not been demonstrated that it will help small bookstores," says Liberal press secretary, Mathieu St-Pierre.
They say they want more immediate measures to help small bookstores.
And, says St-Pierre, that will not be fixed-pricing.
Francois Legault's party has been against from the start.
"It's not the right way to increase the number of people reading in Quebec," he says.
The minister of Culture, Maka Kotto, has not yet table a bill on the subject.
