The idea of the Blue Basket was born out of a commitment to boost the Quebec economy and reduce the ecological footprint of our consumption through local purchasing, while strengthening Quebec’s e-commerce specifically. However, this Blue Basket will require much more than the publication of a directory of Quebec suppliers, and efforts have been undertaken by its proponents to better define the project. This text by Henri-Paul Rousseau is intended to contribute to the reflection on the matter.
