A major cleanup is about to take place within the PQ after its crushing defeat April 7th.

The party’s President Raymond Archambault; director general Sylvain Tanguay and director of communications Jean Bouchard are no longer welcome in the organization, according to members of the PQ.

It is believed former minister Pierre Duschesne will take over the reigns as president, according to a report in the Journal de Montreal.

This is not confirmed by the PQ.

    Not even worth recycling. Straight to the garbage dump with the rest of the trash.

    Nationalism always leans to the right wing. I'll bet that the house cleaning, or as other places call it "purging", will consist of getting rid of the cosmopolitan, the non supremacist, the forward thinking. Linguistic fundamentalists and their ilk , the right wing, will remain. This is what usually happens throughout history worldwide.

    I would like an investigative report on how much she spent on renovations on her Quebec City, Montreal offices and Price House premier's residence. She is the queen of renovations remember.

  • Recycling deposit error headache for Montreal dad

    Just in time for school to start up again, Five Alive juice boxes are on sale at Loblaws and Maxis across town. If you've bought any of these products a CJAD listener warns: check your receipts, you may have paid an unjustified fee.

    A listener emailed us at yourstory@cjad.com to share his experience.

    Over the past few weeks, local dad Alfonso bought his kids packages of juice boxes from 2 different Maxis and a Loblaws in Montreal.

    The grocery stores charged him an extra 5 cents recycling deposit for each juice box - the trouble is, customers can't return juice boxes to reclaim their deposit like with cans or bottles.

    Gomez, a representative from the Office de la protection du consommateur, says Carlos should report the incident to them.

    "We can not all the time do single cases, but if you call us we keep the information," said Gomez. "If many contact us about the issue then we may do an investigation. We have to pick our fights."

    The Loblaws corporation says it is aware of the situation and claims it was simply an error.

    A Maxi employee says the grocer offered to refund the extra fees if customers bring in their receipts, but Loblaws still won't accept juice boxes in return for past charged deposits.
