Duceppe pounds the pavement in Montreal
Bloc leader Gilles Duceppe is spending much of his campaign day on foot in the streets of Montreal.
The city is marking its annual Car-Free Day, when several major streets in the downtown core are blocked to motorized traffic.
Duceppe began with a photo-op as he stepped off a busy métro during the morning rush hour. He's also taking in part of a walk through downtown to mark the event, and while he's there, stopping in at the storefront studios of MusiquePlus to give one of several interviews as part of a media blitz today.
But, all is not vehicle-free on the Bloc's campaign. The two buses that allow the media to follow Duceppe's tour are running as usual… though with so many streets closed off to traffic, the drivers are finding it especially challenging to find parking.
