Oath ceremony held at Plateau church

As a gesture against the National Assembly’s obligatory oath to the King, the Société Saint‑Jean‑Baptiste held an oath said to be libre, citoyenne et républicaine at St‑Jean‑Baptiste church on Saturday. These stories are English and French versions of the same CP report, and neither one mentions how many people attended.

In tangential news, PQ leader Paul St‑Pierre Plamondon is grasping at straws to get party recognition in the National Assembly, even though the PQ elected only three MNAs last month. Normally, recognition and benefits only go to parties electing a minimum of 12 MNAs or receiving 20% of the popular vote. St‑Pierre Plamondon seems to be counting on historic sentiment to get his party a better deal.
