Montreal, March 19, 2020 – Quebec broadcasters are coming together to support the local economy by joining the TOGETHER FOR QUEBEC movement. A message will be broadcast on all Quebec radio stations inviting Quebecers to buy online from our local merchants.
In these uncertain times, we see that Quebecers can take matters into their own hands and work TOGETHER. Did you know that more than 10 billion online purchases are made in Quebec each year? Only 1 in 5 dollars stay in the province. Buying locally online is part of the solution in protecting our economy! Quebecers must be proud of the local businesses and industries that work day in and day out to ensure that the population's needs are met. All Quebec broadcasters are joining the Government of Quebec inviting YOU to be part of the solution.
For your future purchases, think local, think Quebec. Let’s protect our local economy!
