We are also getting mad ... but what can we do ?
Our parliamentary democracy has no mechanism where we can show the governement it is enought, sort of a revolution. Once the Liberals have the
majority they are there for 3-5 years ... whatever they do or don't do.
We should find ways to get more money. One of Quebec's greatest accomplishment (IMHO) is Hydro-Quebec, who gives the governement 3 billion each year.
So do the same thing with the mines, the forest and our water. American companies are making huge profit by exploiting our ressources and usualy
leaves before the mess is cleaned.
So my solution, tax those ressources or nationalise them. We didi it with Hydro-Quebec and we can do it for other ressources.
Chop in the bureaucracy, slack a few pencil pushers from the governement.
Have every body work ... cut welfare after a year if you don't want to find a job.
There are plenty of way the government can make money without taking it from our pocket. But we would need someone in power who has more vision than
that spineless Charest and his friends.
We need to organise a massive protest campaign, one radio station in Quebec city tried it yeasterday with limited results. What do we have to do ? A
massive Quebec-wide strike ? stop paying your taxes, your licence ?
