It's not quite on par with the level of debate over the Marois government's proposed Charter of Values, but Montreal city council has decided to consider imposing a dress code for members.
The issue came up at Monday's city council meeting.
Montreal North councillor and the Team Coderre caucus president Jean-Marc Gibeau was upset because Project Montreal councillor Alex Norris was not wearing a jacket.
There is no dress code at city hall, but Gibeau says there should be a certain measure of decorum and so a committee will be created to study the issue and make recommendations.
For his part, Norris says he meant no disrespect and simply removed his jacket because he was warm.
