I believe we have heard enough from our current federal Liberal government on taking care of Quebec’s perceived job losses.
Perhaps nobody reminded them that with the perceived bad, sometimes the actual good can arrive. At least then we won’t have a major company blatantly acting fraudulently and expecting someone to cover their butts.
If it was you or me, we’d already be in jail.
They have made us the laughing stock of the world.
What the Liberal government appears to forget is that it isn’t only Quebec that has job loss. What about the more than 100,000 jobs in Alberta that the Liberal government certainly has overlooked and has deliberately forgotten since Alberta is a province in the west?
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is doing exactly as his father Pierre Trudeau has done in the past with the western provinces.
I guess Quebec, a have-not province, won’t be receiving their equalization payment of more than $12 billion (in 2018) which came from the have province of Alberta.
According to Google, this year’s equalization payments total $19 billion. Quebec will receive 62 per cent of this. Alberta taxpayers will contribute $3 billion. This amount is actually only a portion of approximately $20 billion of net federal transfers out of Alberta.
Perhaps next year they can exchange their positions. After all, the Liberals have already lent money many times in the pat to Bombardier, which has never been paid back.
Remember the Quebec hospital fiasco a couple of years ago? And what about Blackberry’s $40 million?
These are only a couple of the many Quebec assistance packages which have been paid.
Let us think about this.
Sad, very sad, that our federal government, supposedly for all Canadians, has come to this.
I hope that the B.C. government does not give SNC-Lavalin the contract for the new St. Paul’s Hospital building. They have already been selected as one of three companies to quote.
And what about the new Pattullo Bridge build? Will SNC-Lavalin get a chance to quote on that also? Scary!
If either or both are awarded, let’s hire more accountants and lawyers to be on the safe side.
