Andre Pellan: Eastern Canada
Are you ready for this? Andre Pellan's work was recently taken down from the walls of the Foreign Affairs Building in Quebec and replaced by a large portrait of Her Majesty. That's when the pot began to boil.
The Parti Québécois says Quebec should repatriate two works of art that have been taken down from the Foreign Affairs building in Ottawa in favour of a portrait of the Queen.
The paintings by celebrated Quebec artist Alfred Pellan have been removed at the request of Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird, and replaced by a giant portrait of Her Majesty.
The pro-independence party says the gesture shows how little the Conservative government cares about Quebec's culture.
It says the move probably wasn't intended as an insult and was simply a goodwill gesture for the visit of Prince William and Kate, who attended a Canada Day event at the building.
A pair of Quebec paintings have been replaced by an image of the Queen in a federal building in Ottawa. What do you think? CBC News. Please click here
