UPGRADE DAY

Parti Québécois leader Paul St-Pierre Plamondon has decided to mark the occasion of Québec's National Day by distributing a Québec passport, an initiative that was planned before the current Canadian passport crisis.

Mr. St-Pierre Plamondon will hand over nearly 1,000 Quebec passports on Friday afternoon in the riding of Bourget, where he is running as a candidate for the next provincial election.

This party decision was made before the situation where Quebecers have been queuing for several days in front of federal offices, notably at the Guy-Favreau complex in Montreal, to obtain their passports.

“I say to the people of Bourget: today, come get a Quebec passport! It's free, and you won't have to camp or pay the price for federal incompetence,” said Paul St-Pierre Plamondon in a press release.

“By distributing Quebec passports, I hope that people of all allegiances open the discussion on the legitimate idea of ​​making Quebec a country”, he specified.
