Bookstore group restores premier’s booklist

There’s a tempest going on in Quebec media and commentariat about the Association des libraires du Québec, which runs lists of books favoured by notable people. Recently they had François Legault’s list, where he praised a book by Mathieu Bock-Côté. The ALQ responded by deleting his list although they kept his video on their Facebook page. Cue general cries of censorship (the ALQ is not a government branch) and rending of garments. The list has since been restored on the Facebook page. The story is summed up here.
