It is now possible to buy items in the solidarity colors, whether it be sweaters, cotton swabs, bags or even socks.

While the cotton swabs and bags are indeed made in Quebec and made of organic cotton and recyclable material, this is not the case for all items.

The socks, available at a price of $20, come from the United States, while the T-shirts are made in the neighbor to the south, but printed in Montreal.

The price of the objects is also controversial when it is possible to get your hands on a cotton sweatshirt for $60, $36 for a T-shirt and $18 for a bag.
