Oh this makes me angry. Why is the aerospace industry in Montreal getting 900 million taxpayer dollars, but the entire country is only going to get 250 million dollars in total for child care this year? This is Quebec, the province that already has a universal child care system funded through our system of asymmetrical federalism. This year 12.7 billion in equalization payments, from the rich provinces of Ontario, Alberta and BC, were transferred to the 7 have-not provinces. Quebec a have-not province just received 56% of that total pie.
What the heck is going on here? No wonder the polls show the Conservatives dropping like stones in places like BC….. but I notice they are continuing to rise in Quebec. To think we could have 3 more years of this garbage.
