No future for fixed book prices

Minister of culture Maka Kotto

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.

Not established

"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.

CAQ against

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.

    What a circus act this PQ and it's merry band of idiots is turning out to be. They should reach out to the cirque du soleil for a merger deal.
