Resolution #99: Abolition of the Act respecting the development of Québec firms in the book industry. (Official French version)

The "book chain", a structure established in 1981 under chapter D-8.1 (Act respecting the development of Québec firms in the book industry), defines the responsibilities of each link in the chain and the share of profits which amounts everyone who should supply where, who can sell what, when, to whom. This legislative framework is a real straitjacket for the book industry in Québec, and it's time to modernize it in the liberalizing.

A CPQ government will abolish the Act respecting the development of Québec firms in the book industry to liberalize the marketing of books and promote the growth of the Québec economy.
