Quebec's Most Dangerous Fool

Martine Ouellet, smiling us right into the poor house
Most people wouldn't recognize her photo, nor could they put a name to Martine Ouellet, Quebec's Minister of Natural Resources, yet they should.

Few articles are written about her and her fantastical energy policies in the English media, but they should.

Martine Ouellet represents one of the biggest threats to Quebec prosperity, with ideas and  policies so bizarre that it begs the question as to her mental capacity to understand the most basic principles of public policy.

In her brief tenure as Resource Minister she has single-handedly frightened the resource industry into retraction with her pie in the sky idea of reform which would ramp up the tax the industry pays to the government, while increasing environmental costs, this in the face of declining metal prices.
"Preliminary numbers suggest investments in the sector fell to $3.25 billion from $5.13 billion a year earlier, due largely to lower gold prices and softer demand in China and emerging markets.
In October, the agency forecast a drop of at least 10 per cent in 2013 based on surveys of mining companies completed during the summer." Link
This coupled with an insane electricity policy that produces more electricity than can be sold, with new projects being created every day, producing more electricity at a higher production cost than mothballed facilities shuttered because of a lack of demand.

It doesn't take a genius to understand that if you run a doughnut shop and are producing more doughnuts than you can possibly sell, you need to limit production, not increase it.

According to Pauline Marois the electricity surplus is an advantage, but how that is, I don't really understand. It's like saying it's good to have cancer because it provides an opportunity to find a cure.
At any rate, electricity doesn't have a shelf life, you either use it or lose it, at least doughnuts can be frozen.

But the economic lessons that the rest of the world lives by, make no sense to Madame Ouellet, who believes that it is important to bake more doughnuts, because it keeps the bakers employed, regardless of the waste.

The frightening thing about Madame Ouellet and I don't say this lightly, is that she's an idiot, plain and simple. She hasn't the brains for the job.

Think I'm being cruel.
Watch this video of her being destroyed by an incredulous Radio-Canada interviewer who is mocking her over her utter misunderstanding of what a loan is, as opposed to a loan guarantee.


Perhaps someone should have explained to Madame Ouellet in terms that she could understand, so here goes.
Imagine your brother asks you to sign for him at the bank for a car loan because his credit is iffy. Because of your guarantee, your brother benefits from a preferred rate and saves on interest payments.
If he pays back the loan as per the agreement, your guarantee costs you exactly nothing....
Capisce, Madame Ouellet?

It's utterly fantastic that a Cabinet Minister can be so badly misinformed and it leads one to imagine where that lack of sophistication takes us.
This is a minister who has said in the past that there can never be a safe way to extract gas through fracking.
It's the type of attitude that has Quebec on the outside of the gas bonanza that has lifted the United States right out of recession and on the course to energy self-sufficiency.
In fact, American success via fracking has left Hydro-Quebec in the lurch, as the cost of electricity produced by gas produced by fracking is much cheaper than what Quebec is selling.

At any rate Martine Ouellet is once again using her prodigious mental acumen to lead us into another fine mess, this time by way of her unwavering support of alternative energy projects like wind power and co-generation, which remains Quebec's biggest boondoggle.

On the eve of the tabling of a report commissioned by the Quebec government itself which recommends shutting down these costly mistakes, our fair minister has already announced that she will ignore the recommendations, because she knows better.
"Over  the past ten years, the situation has radically changed. Electricity demand peaked and then decreased both in Quebec and its export markets .
The price of electricity produced in the United States by power plants fueled by shale gas has dropped dramatically. Nevertheless, Quebec has added significant new ways of generating electricity: wind capacity, mini-plants hydro-power, biomass power plants, in addition to new hydroelectric  projects

....The Commission is making  a series recommendations, including the following;
That consideration be given without delay to suspend investments in the Romaine-3 and Romaine-4, and stop or suspend supply contracts wind in co-generation and small hydro projects not yet built."....
...."The strategy focused on building new projects (hydroelectric or wind generation, in particular) is ruinous for Quebec."  Read the entire report in French
Yet none of this advice makes any sense to the intrepid minister.
"Minister of Natural Resources, Martine Ouellet, recognized that Quebec is struggling with surplus electricity. "But on the other hand, there are other considerations, such as the 5000 Quebec jobs related to wind power, including 800 in the Gaspé and Lower St. Lawrence. We can not act unilaterally without thinking that there are consequences, "said the minister during a meeting with Le Devoir." Link
Now how much does all this job creation cost Quebec taxpayers?
Quite a lot, in fact between $1.2 an $2 billion dollars a year.
All this for five thousand jobs.

Now I didn't even need to get out my calculator, a reader commenting under the above story laid it all out.



Yup, according to this reader, who did his sums quite correctly, each job created by these 'projects' that produce electricity that we throw away, costs taxpayers between $240,000 to $400,000 per.
And this every single year.

You read that right.
Martine Ouellet thinks it's reasonable to waste all that much money to create these 5,000 jobs producing a product that nobody is buying.

Actually, if she took the cash that the project wastes each year, she could just about pay THE ENTIRE GASPÉ PENINSULA WORKFORCE of about 60,000 workers (10,000 presently unemployed,) the tidy sum of  $30,000 per year to dig holes in the ground and then fill them up again.
Madame Ouellet could then boast of having created 100% employment in the region!!

Such is the state of affairs in Quebec, where the media spends all its capital discussing the idiotic Charter of Values, instead of the very real disaster that is the mismanagement of the public purse.

Martine Ouellet is responsible for blowing between $1 billion and $2 billion of public money each year because she doesn't understand basic math or basic economics. She is directly responsible for the rumoured upcoming rate hike at Hydro-Quebec of some 6%, needed to fund all of this.

This is who is running the province, it's sad, but even sadder that nobody cares.

    2. Should September 18'th not become an official day of celebration for the victors of the war?

      History is so important.

      September 18. The day Quebecer surrender to the English.

      New France thankfully starts to disappear.

      Can be a new rosary bead for seppies to fondle.

      Some enterprising seppie (exception that proves the rule) might sell a charm bracelet version.

      Can collect a new rosary bead of past injustice every month by going to the website.

      Add it to your chain to get the whole set. Quebec history for seppies to feel the injustice.

      Good to hold when confronted by foreign languages, foreign people or zombies.

      Only by final victory against the english can the seppie mind be free.

      The ghosts of the past are still pushing them forward.

  3. I believe I am the first to comment..yes..finally.

    It is pretty sad..as I often say up is down and down is up in Quebec. They might as well just mail a 50,000 cheque to people in the Gaspe and elsewhere instead of 200,000 per job.

    To be fair though fracking though has been somewhat overblown. There are very serious environmental consequences to fracking..go have a look at the documentary gasland..peoples drinking water have been contaminate with all sorts of garbage, the air quality in many areas is awful. Once again fracking is great for the short term but in the longer term I believe it will be seen as an environmental disaster.
    So I think Quebec is right in being cautious on this.

    Its very easy for us city dwellers to approve of fracking when we dont have to deal with the water and air issues associated with it. Its similar to the oilsands..the oilsands are in northern alberta in a pretty isolated area so its very easy for many canadians to dismiss the environmental impacts as we dont see it nor are affected by it. But the surrounding native people have been impacted in a huge way..there is all sorts of crap flowing into rivers and lakes up there and the size of the project is massive.

    We only have one planet and at some point you cant just keep pouring chemicals in the rivers, lakes and our air before it comes back to bite us all in the butt. Our oceans have become a dumping ground for all sorts of garbage, plastics, chemicals and so on.

  5. I have a question as to quebec's most dangerous fool. was reading quebecs charter of human rights Chapter C-12 , Part 1 chapter 1
    FUNDAMENTAL FREEDOMS AND RIGHTS

    CHAPTER I.1
    RIGHT TO EQUAL RECOGNITION AND EXERCISE OF RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS

    10. Every person has a right to full and equal recognition and exercise of his human rights and freedoms, without distinction, exclusion or preference based on race, colour, sex, pregnancy, sexual orientation, civil status, age except as provided by law, religion, political convictions, language, ethnic or national origin, social condition, a handicap or the use of any means to palliate a handicap.

    Discrimination exists where such a distinction, exclusion or preference has the effect of nullifying or impairing such right.

    1975, c. 6, s. 10; 1977, c. 6, s. 1; 1978, c. 7, s. 112; 1980, c. 11, s. 34; 1982, c. 61, s. 3.

    10.1. No one may harass a person on the basis of any ground mentioned in section 10.

    1982, c. 61, s. 4.

    11. No one may distribute, publish or publicly exhibit a notice, symbol or sign involving discrimination, or authorize anyone to do so.

    article 11 *** Does this mean that Marois and her henchmen are guilty of Violating my rights by sending out their proaganda pamphlet on the charter of intolerance to my home? should they not be brought up on charges? or section 254 or 264 orf the Canadian criminal code in regards to hate literature?

    1. Quebec is already over the line on UN Human Rights.

      Quebec group think says this is ok because, say it all together "Quebec is in a precarious state in north america. It is being assaulted daily. As a minority in a sea of majority bla bla bla".

      This is another thing Liberals and the PQ agree on. Ignoring Human Rights is ok.

      What Francophones don't seem to understand is that UN Human Rights Protections were designed EXACTLY to PROTECT PEOPLE from EXACTLY what Quebec is doing now.

      These universal declaration of human rights is something that was written to protect immigrants from exactly what the PQ and Liberals have been doing.

      "Quebecois" ideas about democracy and human rights are perverted through their own racist lens.

      Liberals should be screaming from the rafters. Instead they are all guiltily shuffling their feet and mumbling about "social contracts" and other meaningless phrases.

      ""we encourage Montrealers to take a page from the Jewish General Hospital, English Montreal School Board and other conscientious objectors to the secularism charter: Simply ignore the government’s menaces and speak freely. ""

      Civil disobedience starts small.

      When racists run the govt like we have, pass laws like we see, based on stolen elections due to illegal riding sizes it's not a legitimate govt.

      It's legitimate govt for toothless seppies in Charlevoix and Sherbrooke yes. They got 150% representation.

      These laws are illegitimate in Montreal and must be ignored and ridiculed.

    2. As for the Editor's comments, she is far from the only stupid PQ - Was announced on the news this morning that 50% of the francophone population do not trust the PQ. They have finally put their face out there way too much and the francophones are starting to notice that there is a lot of backtracking and "foot in the mouth" moments. Good on them: catch up to the rest of the world guys! They are making fools out of all of you!

      For myself, I will go to jail before I follow any of their stupid laws and continue to speak english when I want, where I want. If someone does not want to respond to me, tough, I didn't need them anyway. Everyone must ignore these ignorant and stupid charter and bills and carry on as if they don't exist. The PQ are making themselves look stupid and xenophobic all over the world now and trying to stop the lady in Chelsea from publishing on FB in english only is just another example of their "control" and backward mentality. She's had thousands of FB hits since this was published and everyone is on her side. Imagine telling someone what they can put out in cyberspace. They don't know when to quit.

  7. I'm so glad this is being brought to people's attention, although perhaps some here already knew of it. I'm a Quebec geologist and barely worked last year. This year the project I was supposed to be working on was cancelled by a major mining company because of how unsettled things are here. Of all the geologists I know, not one of them has a job or even the future offer of a job. A few are staying in Quebec but I think about 75% of them are applying for positions in Alberta. Quebec's loss is Alberta's gain...

    I'm baaaack. Much to the discouragement of many here, I imagine. I have just come out of hospital since I died a week ago Tuesday. My breathing cut off completely and was saved by my Grandson using CPR plus the quick arrival of Urgence Sante.
    It seems I have a severe case of 'Sleep Apnea' which was complicated by my pneumonia. When I sleep laying down I stop breathing. I am on heavy antibitics and house bound for two months. But hey, I lounge around in flannel pyjamas and get three or four hours snooze per day sitting up in my recliner. In this weaher who needs out? I was eight days in a private room. I'm home but still isolated while they try to find what stran of virus I have inhaled.
    To the relief I'm sure of many here my posts will be rare.. Because my fibrualating heart gets out of control easy I must not get angry as it gives me a breathing attack.So help me out. Altogether now say, "I love the Liberals."
    I'm discouraged at the spat between Dr.Couillard and Henri Gautrin our Liberal member in Verdun. Henri says he has decided to retire which is bad news for Verdun. For 28 years we have elected Henri and would have no matter what party he represented..
    I've tried to convince Henri to run as an independant but he says although he feels he could stand the campaign, it's the four years after of dragging to Quebec city etc. It means we will have a PQ representative in Verdun as no one could replace him. Verdun is 85 percent separatist who voted for Henri because he was like a Father to all Verdun. Henri was there at celebrations, sporting events
    and holidays. The extreme measure of a politicians popularity is when he's there in the crowd at a kid's ball game and no one gets excited that the member of parliament is there. He was so much among us that he was considered like a family member.
    I wish Quebec the best in the campaign, may we move on in glory. I'm not worried about the polls, the polls will change when the dirt starts to come out after the election is announced. The one thing that could clinch it is if Legault would team with Couillard.
    I urge you all to contact Mr. Ducheneau and urge him to run for the Liberals. It would make a great difference.
    So goodbye to trolls; Stupid and So wRong. Also Sovain Ravist. So long to those who dance with trolls Anectote and Cebeuq
    you might out smart those robots some day.. And goodbye to the only man on this planet that would condemn a whole nation over money.

    10. Apple IIGS: Ed is not the first person to spew anti-Semitism to me, far from it. Do remember how he did say how some of his best friends (namely, a former employer's family) were Jews. That more than gave away his position. Ed obviously is a very sick man and came of what I imagine was a very traumatizing scare. I never wished him harm and I still don't because I believe karma is the ultimate bitch.

      I am surprised that after his near-death experience he could show such bitterness. Most people whom I have ever heard from seem to find such experiences humbling. Like a death in one's family, sometimes it brings the best out of the deceased's survivors, and sometimes the worst. I experienced both sides of the aftermath upon the deaths of my parents. The differences were staggering, but they did reflect the lives they lived. I won't say which experience was which, but they were completely different from one another.

      Ed: I hope the remainder of your life is exactly what God feels you deserve.

      Best,

    11. Ed -

      Oh for christs sake, Ed. You wrote, and I quote, "You are a money grubbing Jew."

      Associating Jews with hoarding and controlling money is about as stereotypical a comment and as racist as you can get. All you need do is throw in a mention of his undoubtedly hooked nose for good measure. Mind you, I'm sure such a comment from you isn't far off.

      Are you really that ignorant to claim your comment has nothing against Jews in general?
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stereotypes_of_Jews#Greed

      And it's not just anti-semantic remarks, I've seen you make derogatory comments about other minority groups in your posts recently. Quite sad, that makes you a small minded person and speaks volumes of your character. Doubt you get it, judging a person by the content of what they are and how they act (i.e. their character), rather than the color of their skin or race they were born, is what is essential. Luckily for you, you happen to live in a society that thrives in hate, division and superiority based on race. Luckily for you the political party that embraces those anti-values will be the majority ruling party as of next month; I expect you'll fit in quite well. A government that represents your believes and values!

      I don't wish any ill on you, Ed, and you're certainly entitled and welcome to share your opinions and thougths like most of us here, but I lose a lot of respect for anyone who puts down another based on who or what they were born.

      Easy for you to say, actually doing it is something else completely. That you don't understand that says a lot.

      It's fascinating how Quebec can have a fifty year discussion about identity without understanding the concept at all.

    4. No, the discussion has been very worthwhile. It was necessary and I'm glad it has happened. It should have been the first step to making things better for everyone. And we should have moved on to the next parts of the discussion. And many people have.

      But it often sounds like a bad joke to hear people in the government in Quebec talking about the "majority" and the "minority" as if nothing has changed in fifty years. The same complete lack of understanding and insight into the non-Francophone population of Quebec and the ROC exists now as it did then. How is that possible?

      "It's a stinking disgusting dialect, and that's why the real French despise it."

      How true. I just watched "The Monuments Men" movie last week. The movie is about a group of Allied soldiers who are tasked with finding and saving looted art before its destruction by the Nazis in the Second World War. One of the soldiers is James Granger (played by Matt Damon), who is an American museum curator from New York City. In recently liberated France, James Granger tries speaking French to three different French citizens and is told each time that his French is terrible. In one case he is told to switch to English in order to be better understood. The reason for Damon's very poor French becomes crystal clear when he tells one of the Frenchmen that he picked it up while studying in Montreal. They can't understand him because he learned shitty, bastardized Quebec Joual.

      Even Hollywood knows that Quebec Joual is a garbage version of French, and this fact is currently being broadcast in movie theaters around the world!

      Par contre il est moins notable qu'il y a 50 ans. Les Anglo-canadiens quant à eux ont un complexe d'infériorité par rapport aux Américains.

      Après le prochain référendum, les Québécois seront envahis d'un immense sentiment de fierté qui diminuera d'autant leur complexe d'infériorité résiduel.

    Here's a potentially interesting story in the news. The Montreal-based company Mega Brands (formerly Mega Bloks) was officially bought out by toy giant Mattel today. Mattel claims they plan to keep the company and its HQ operating in Montreal, but then again, promises like these are often empty words when it comes to big business. If things in Quebec continue along a path of political and economical uncertainty, you can bet Mattel will relocate this head office to Toronto (or the States) on a moments notice. As a matter of fact, I'd bet on it....mark my words, months from now, there will be such an announcement.

    Also interesting to note, Mattel's history with other company takeovers abroad have not ended so well. Bluebird Toys had its UK HQ shutdown, Fisher Price's manufacturing plant was shutdown and moved to China. What does that say for Montreal, a backwater region with the highest taxes in North America, restriction language laws, disregard for freedom of religion, political uncertainty and dead last economically in Canada. If I were a multi-billion dollar cooperation, I'd move my assets out of Montreal in the blink of an eye.

We've handed over the keys of government to 5yrs olds who are tearing the place down, I am serious. As for the OQLF, it is acting out of pure emotion right now going after the Lady from Chelsea, this bunch of deadbeats is still wounded from being ridiculed world-wide and they are hurting. But what do they do? They strike out again in the exact same "emotional" way, venturing into no-man's land of FB and the Internet. Folks, this is a gift!

"These measures may appear draconian but the public fails to appreciate how the mere sight of an English word can cause a real québécois to forget the entirety of his language and heritage.”

      Yes indeed, the mere sight of an English word...will provoke an episode of spontaneous combustion with the québécois public at large.

      Wow, it never occurred to us just how fragile and weak the québécois are. Do they know that this is what the language police is saying about them?

      Tough shit. Some of us also dislike Russian hip-hop. Doesn't mean it's bad - just means it's not our cup of tea. Second, if I want to watch vacuous crap like American Idol, The Banker and et al, I'll stick to the original version and not the copycat Quebecois version.

      Ils n'aiment pas notre modèle économique

      Correction: You have to have a model for us to hate. Come back when you actually have an economy worth talking about.

      Ils n'aiment pas notre modèle social

      The separatists consider someone making $100K RICH and tax them according to the way you would someone making $1M. Of course we don't love this model and many Francophones are done with it. The majority (F & A) are sick of working their asses off so welfare parasites can leech off of them.

      Ils n'aiment pas notre mentalité

      The separatist mentality? Tell us, what's to like about the separatist mentality? We're supposed to feel bad because we're not racists like the PQ and their supporters?

      Et ils sont à genoux devant les Américains

      Really? It's the separatists who constantly keep whining that they're "drowning in an ocean" of 350M Anglophones. That's why they feel a need to rip off American TV and movie concepts and then call it "unique Quebec culture" simply for the fact that Rambo V.Q is presented in joual.

    Oran's Dictionary of the Law (1983) defines treason as "...[a]...citizen's actions to help a foreign government overthrow, make war against, or seriously injure the [parent nation]." In many nations, it is also often considered treason to attempt or conspire to overthrow the government, even if no foreign country is aiding or involved by such an endeavor.

    1. Anonymous, we all know perfectly well what you are saying but please understand that the treasonous separatist is trying to see if he can goad you into saying things that will make him titter and post elsewhere. Better to focus on the Editor’s comments and other constructive commentary, otherwise you’re just falling into his trap.

  21. UN GARS BIEN SYMPATHIQUE DE FRANKFORTSaturday, March 1, 2014 at 8:31:00 AM EST

    This is my take on quebec and its future.

    As a franco quebecois born and raised in quebec and stayed 1 year (unemployed) after graduating from the HEC with a BAA until I left for work to Calgary almost 10 years ago and have since travelled in several countries, I say this:
    quebec sucks.
    quebec has no future other than one with degrading socio-economic situation.
    quebec is not business friendly and quebec society is openly socialist by definition.
    If I were in quebec right now I would seriously start to plan for a move out of province. Ontario is not a good, wise choice due to its poor economy. If I was a young graduate I would move to Alberta. If you stay in quebec it must be because you like it there and then you should all either shut the hell up, put up, enjoy quebec or move out.
    quebec is a dead end. Even my HEC peers told me that I was brave to leave and made a good decision. A few told me if they could move they would (wives said no).

    Still scratching my head over why the Gazette gives a voice to rednecks like this guy: http://www.montrealgazette.com/life/Francophones+just+want+able+live+their+language/9564042/story.html

    That's the problem with Anglo outlets in Quebec, it's not enough that separatists badger, bully and slander Anglos and Allos in their own media forums. We roll out the red carpet to these reprobates and invite them to come shit on our front lawns.

    No wonder they keep coming up with 101s and 60s...we're giving them full permission to do it.

    1. Yes, plus the fact that they chose the article as one where there was no space for making comments. Guess they thought if people starting commenting, it would crash their website. The guy should have been published in one of the separatist newspapers but not the Gazette considering it's the only one that I've seen in Montreal that gives the federalists at least a fighting chance to comment on anything even related to us as a community.

      Delete
    2. @ Cutie: I know people at the Gazette, and I can tell you the paper has a policy of not allowing comments on certain issues -- the language conflict among them. But someone in the newsroom also has to "open" the comments so people can reply, and sometimes that person just forgets to hit the right button.

      Delete
    3. Thank you for the info. I don't know why they would not allow comments on the language conflict when this is what half the population talk about all the time. It's certainly newsworthy when some of these language militants make the stupid statements they do and then the Gazette doesn't provide a forum for discussion of same stupid comments. Anyway, as I have no say in what these papers do and do not do, all I can do is write them a letter and tell them how I feel about it I guess. We certainly do have select journalism in this province and no legitimate democracy. Gets worse all the time.

  23. Not a response to the article but a suggestion to all who write here:

    On this site there are plenty of amazing writers with excellent arguments to demolish the separatist and language supremacists' ideas. However we are talking mostly to a crowd of the converted.

    I would suggest we all regularly go over the Journal de Montreal website where there are daily articles that take jabs at Anglos and promote the separatists cause. There are also plenty of articles about the ridiculous social and economic policies of our current government. When you look at the comments section below these articles, you will quickly come to the conclusion that we are dealing with a mostly lost cause when it comes to common sense. There are a few defenders of the non-separatist, pro-business cause but they are a minority. Most writers in the comments section of the blogs just preach the same stupidity we are used to seeing with our resident trolls.

    We should take some of the best arguments put forward on this site (with author's permission), translate them into French, and put them in the blog section of the J de Mtl.

    I would also suggest the following theme when responding to comments:

    We understand the separatist desire to create a unique Francophone country in North America. However we want no part of it because it is based on ethnicity, and is not financially viable. We are not against Quebec separating, we just want Montreal, the Anglo regions, and the regions that vote No to be exempt.

    I don't believe many separatists have heard these arguments before. They believe they can keep scaring the crap out of Anglos by threatening to separate. When you tell them you are in favour as long as we are not part of it, they will fall off their chair. The smart people here all know that Quebec's threat to separate is nothing more than a "petard mouillé".

      Cutie, if you read my letter you would know that the harm was done by Dr.Couillard. I am rreally disgusted with him, he needs to get a thicker skin. Either that or he was planning al along to slip a friend in here. What I have said is accurate, there is no one going to replace Henri. The epitomy of a politician in my opinion, is when he is spotted at a kid's ball game and no one gets excited because the member of Parliament is there. He is more like family among us.
      However when I suggested to Henri that we run him as an independent he told me he is happy to retire. He says that at 70 he could stand the campaign but the four years after of dragging to Quebec city is too much. His legs are getting weary., he is a heavy man. He was absolutely right in saying that an election would bring a PQ victory ac0ording to the polls, which is what he was asked. However the English press are like a fifth column working against us wanted to to make him look dotty. I Know you see this as my fault but your shooting the messanger as you will see when the time comes. Ed

    9. Well I tried to tell you that before but you wouldn't listen - he should have dumped that lady that didn't want to follow party policy right from the start and said he couldn't have people in his party that don't agree on the principles. That being said, be careful because you were right that there is no one else out there for us to support so give him as much as you can and then try to get things turned around. Right now we are under a big time constraint and now is not the time to turn on the party. I'm sure at 70 he wanted to retire anyway - not an easy job but especially here in quebec. Maybe in Verdun they voted for the man but most people vote for the party because not many of us know our reps. Fight for the liberals in any way you can because, as you said, who needs the PQ for yet another term. They will kill what little good will is left between the people that live here and there will end up being fights on the streets before they're finished. Don't forget Dr. Couillard is trying to change a lot of old timers thinking and if that's what he's doing, he on the right track. This stalemate will never end unless they change their tactics.

      I told you, Ed, many, many months ago Philippe Couillard is NOT Quebec's saviour. You didn't yield to my far superior moneygrubbing Jewish brain and realize I was right all along. Too bad, so sad, but you just don't have a Jewish brain to think these things through, do you, Brain-Dead Ed?

Since he's on vacation, I'm not sure he saw what Ed wrote because had he done so, I think he would have stricken it right away. I'm actually glad he didn't because I'm sure other Jewish people would like to see what Ed really thinks of the Jews--as if nobody knew when he started with his "some of my best friends are Jewish" stuff several months ago.

      He placed all his faith and a false idol named Philippe Couillard M.D., a complete shock considering his age and experiences. In his late 70s, how can he put so much stock in a greasy politician you know you can't trust as far as you can throw him.

      I WILL let Ed have it at every turn from here on in. What a simpleton if he truly believed Philippe Couillard M.D. would move Heaven and Earth! Then again, there are those who believe the pope is holy. The only time I knew the pope to be holey was JPII when he was shot full of holes in 1981. I'm thankful he recovered and survived for I don't think he deserved to get shot. He was probably the best pope of my lifetime. Benedict definitely was not and it's too early to tell with Francis.

      Ordinarily a comment like the one posted above warrants no response, but we need to make a point and it is an important point. The legitimate contributors to this blog never bring up that individual's name. No one condones what he did, and certainly none want to be associated with his actions. If anything, most feel he's done a great deal of harm to the cause, and to what most are trying to accomplish on this activist blog.

      The separatists and silent nationalists, on the other hand, celebrate and revere the Rose brothers, who were kidnappers and murders. The FLQ label has become a badge of honor today especially for the language extremists and sympathizes alike, engendering further racism, bigotry and intolerance within the boundaries of this province. It shall be their legacy, I'm afraid, and speaks volumes for who they are, 'nuff said.

You pretend to want to create your French utopia, but you just want to change the definition of success. Quebec culture, literature, French language blah blah blah. You are not special. You want to exclude "others" to have your own special chosen people. And then what? What happens when you will realize you can't stand yourself? There will come a day when Quebecers will curse when they say the name Marois. Poverty, no hope and corruption, nothing will change with separation, except you will have no one to blame but yourselves.

    4. A classic opener from "Big Boots" : "To all the francos..." Great. Unfortunately, that could be the ham radio call sign for too many of the recent "anglo" comments on this blog. Well, TO ALL THE ANGLOS, can't you folks tone down your generalisations about "francos" and "anglos" ? Everyone is entitled to an opinion - but not all opinions have equal value. I am just a solitary reader of this blog but recently there seems to be a lot of mindless, ignorant ethnic gibberish on the part of a few demented "anglos" in the comments section. But Hey ! you are not alone out there. I also read Vigile. You have your "franco" counterparts. And they are equally self righteous. Permit me to make a very simple point : when a single sovereignist, (for example B Drainville) who happens to be a "franco" says something that is extremely stupid etc. they are not suddenly speaking for, or representative of, all "francos". And when one of the anglo francophobes who inhabit this blog writes something extremely stupid (an hourly occurrence) they are not speaking for anglo Quebecers or the "ROC". Some of you regulars should engage your brain before you start to type. STOP generalizing. STOP your ignorant ethnicism. If you are against a government policy make the effort to address it on its merits rather than defaulting to 'English good...French bad...duhhh'

      Ok, lecture over, I feel better. Re our crusading Editor's blog : what if the PQ calls an election and wins and then we are stuck with these third rate people continuing to govern by trying to regulate our behaviour, our hats etc. vs. THE ECONOMY ? What will happen ? Will there be a referendum ?

      Here is the long sought after answer : very little of consequence will happen. Quebec will not separate. Yes, identity politics will rule. But, who is surprised ? Haven't these PQ dweebs already demonstrated what makes them tick. They are Quebec's Tea Party. The Creditistes risen from the dead. We are still part of Canada. In about 2018 the Supreme Court of Canada will explain why the "charter of values" is illegal and on and on. And remember, despite all the wacky bravado on this blog none of us have any power except our single vote. Here is some free advice to all you "anglo" neurotics : just sit back and watch democracy do its imperfect work. If the PQ win the pending election the wave of sovereignty may wash a little further up the beach, for a few years, and then it will recede. And the 2015 + wave will never wash as far up the beach as it did in 1995 or 1980. PQ win - or lose ? Whatever. The sovereignty movement is dying as the PQ boomers, the true believers, die. But they are not losers simply because they are "francos" and Canada will not continue because a majority of its citizens are "anglos". Rather, good policy, the economy, and common sense will guide the way. You see, sovereignty and ethnic nationalism are bad ideas. A substantial majority of Quebecers get this loud and clear (although this may not include "Press 9") So dear friends - please relax and enjoy the drama of a Quebec election - coming soon to a theatre near you. Bad ideas always lose even though it can take decades for the final verdict to emerge. Keep on blogging in the free world..

    7. Student, I regret that it is late, and I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain the history of Canada (including Quebec) to you. I have to leave it to your teachers, if you study history. But I do like a young person who wants to learn "bold" ideas. So I will give you a hint as to where you might find the path to more knowledge.

      You see...sovereignty is essentially ethno/cultural nationalism. These are old concepts from an earlier age. These ideas have not and do not work in modern Canada notwithstanding some of the wacky comments to this blog or what we read on Vigile. The majority of Canadian citizens, including Quebecers, get this and vote accordingly. We are all quite committed it seems - francos and anglos alike - to civic nationalism rather than ethnic nationalism. The facts speak for themselves. The independence of Quebec from Canada has not been achieved. And it is, contrary to the nationalist myths, an idea with a short history. Its 1960s -1970s power and fervent emotion continue to wane. Now, there are many objective reasons why it is a bad idea but the most convincing reason, for those of you who find the workings of advanced democracies interesting, is that it is a losing idea. The folks who want Quebec to separate can't get enough votes to make it happen! In the marketplace of ideas some win, some lose. They have tried very hard since the 60s but sovereignty is a loser = a bad idea = realpolitik. Student, I hope that helps. You know, I was a student once. Good luck on your midterms!

One or two of them might have something useful to say if they didn't continually destroy their credibility with their 'English good...French bad/ Canada good...Quebec bad' gibberish.

      As for Montreal as a City State I think it already is just that. And imagine if the boundaries of electoral districts across Quebec were adjusted to equalize the number of voters per district ? Montreal uber alles. But quite honestly, and with respect, I don't spend any time on utopian ideas about Montreal's status. We can't even figure out how to effectively amalgamate Montreal and run it like a modern city so one step at a time. We have to walk before we run. But keep polishing that crown. We all have to dream.

      also, you are probably aware that most francophones who's vote against separation are nationalists who are not confident enough about quebec's post-independance economic health to risk it. nothing to do with "civic nationalism", what the hell is this anyways? care to share another bit?

      p.s. i appreciate your efforts to shut montreal ville-état. if just for one day he could spare our blog i'd be a blessing. hopefully you have some kind of influence on him.

    10. The bums will have to follow Clarity Act Rules whether they like it or not or risk non-acceptance by others in the free world. As far as I'm concerned I hope they go out quickly but better know were're not all going with them. Take a look at Ukraine this morning and picture quebec should they not think twice about not following the rule of law. Without the rule of law anarchy ensues and then there is going to be complete chaos if they think they are walking away with our land without a fight. I hope the shitheads are ready for it because that's what they're bringing down on their heads. Dumb ass separatists - think they can walk all over us but I have news for them. Canadians are not cowards and didn't hide in the woods when the crunch came down and we won't be hiding anytime soon. Hateful, nasty pricks.

    12. "The folks who want Quebec to separate can't get enough votes to make it happen!"

      Ce qui compte ce n'est pas l'appui conjoncturel à l'indépendance, qui oscille autour de 40% depuis quelques années, mais bien de s'identifier comme Québécois ou Canadien lorsque la question référendaire est posée suite à un débat.

      Selon Jean-François Lisée, en 1980 37% des francophones se disaient Québécois d'abord ou exclusivement. Le reste se disait Canadien ou Canadien français. Résultat du référendum: 40% Oui, 60% Non.

      En 1995, 60% des francophones se disaient Québécois d'abord ou exclusivement. Le reste se disait Canadien ou Canadien français. Résultat du référendum: 60% des francos ont voté Oui. Pour un résultat global de 50%.

      En 2013, 70% des francophones se disaient Québécois d'abord ou exclusivement. Donc logiquement lors du prochain référendum les francos devraient voter Oui à hauteur de 70%. Ce qui est assez pour donner un référendum gagnant à au moins 55%. héhé!

      Lovelyyyy….Yes, lol, YOU and those of your ilk would love to shut "HIM" down, wouldn't you? I wonder why you would want to shut "HIM" down? Is it because HE's being most effective at torpedoing your false 'quebec' brand messaging? Is it because HE tells the Truth and you don't? Is it because HE reveals realities about the "quebec" brand you would rather remain hidden from those visiting this blog beyond your little quebec border?

      Trolling HIM the way you do around this blog and hanging on HIS every word only proves what HE posts carries weight for you and those running your little engine!!!

      Well folks, IT IS a machine lololol, I'm so flattered IT wants to shut me down!!! Made my day actually…Made my day!!!!!

      ps…Apologies Editor…didn't want to make it about ME ME ME lololololol…

      OKAY BACK TO how the boundaries of electoral districts across Quebec not being proportionately reflective of the number of voters per district (Thank you Sandy, as usual, you're a class act). THAT SHOULD BE FRONT PAGE NEWS THIS WEEK!!!! A little appetizer for those going to vote on the fast approaching...Election day! EVERY VOTE COUNTS

      Now now s.r. between you and student trolling me like this, I'm OVERflattered, but let's stick to subject at hand, the one you and the other trolls don't like to talk about:

      The boundaries of electoral districts across quebec not being proportionately reflective of the number of voters per district.

      Why would doesn't this get rectified? In 2014 no less.
      Why doesn't it get rectified before the next election?
      Isn't it dishonest and manipulative of the PQ to call an election without rectifying this problem.. of districts not being proportionately relective of the number of voters per district?

      Defending that 'quebec' brand is become a BITCH, isn't it? LOL

      mate following the very good suggestion you made earlier you have to translate this above comment from cutie003 and post it on journal de montreal blogs. it is so objective and intelligent separatists will have to acknowledge cutie003 as the intellectual leader that she is and realize they are "dumb ass shithead coward nasty prick bums". no doubt it will open their minds to what's around them.

  35. Who even uses the word “Orangist” in 2014, anyway? Radical anglophobic separatist fanatics like Sylvain Racine (S.R.), that’s who. And nobody cares about the opinion of those Communards who are stuck living in the past anyway.

  36. Unfair elections in Quebec:

    I took the population figures form the 2006 census and cross-referenced them against the population by electoral riding in Quebec. On average the are 60,369 residents per riding so the distribution should follow closely. Please have a look at the actual results:

    10 least populous

    Riding Party Population Relative to avg
    Îles-de-la-Madeleine PQ 13,091 21.7%
    Gaspé PQ 38,154 63.2%
    Ungava PQ 39,817 66.0%
    Abitibi-Est PQ 42,640 70.6%
    Bonaventure PQ 43,091 71.4%
    Saint-Maurice PQ 44,530 73.8%
    Abitibi-Ouest PQ 45,067 74.7%
    René-Lévesque PQ 45,355 75.1%
    Laviolette PLQ 46,181 76.5%
    Portneuf CAQ 46,507 77.0%

    10 most populous

    Riding Party Population Relative to avg
    Groulx CAQ 72,410 119.9%
    Saint-Henri–Sainte-Anne PLQ 73,674 122.0%
    Acadie PLQ 74,574 123.5%
    Laurier-Dorion PLQ 74,674 123.7%
    Mont-Royal PLQ 75,116 124.4%
    Marguerite-Bourgeoys PLQ 75,244 124.6%
    Robert-Baldwin PLQ 75,834 125.6%
    Nelligan PLQ 76,750 127.1%
    Bourassa-Sauvé PLQ 77,497 128.4%
    Saint-Laurent PLQ 78,792 130.5%

    These distributions actually violate Quebec's own electoral law.

    Just added a new link to the listing page. Folks, the elections WILL be called this week.

    Let's compile the longest list in history of the many faults and follies the PQ has committed in it's short tenure:

    1. @MTL 1973, thanks for those figures on voters per electoral districts. Very telling but regrettably we are stuck with them for now because the last government didn't have the courage to address the problem.

      @Student, you will have to beef up your research skills if you ever want to graduate. For an intro to "nationalisme civique" try googling those 2 words with "Bernard Landry" who is a former spokesperson for civic nationalists. That is, between his tantrums directed at new immigrants who won't let Quebecers have "their" country. And I'm afraid I don't have a reckless bone in my body. I prefer facts. They don't let you down as often as uninformed opinion. The PQ may win this pending election. They will not get a "sweep". And they won't call a referendum they can't win. Therefore, they won't call a referendum. Write this down, Student, and we'll compare notes in 4 years. A lot can happen in 4 years. Who knows - you may even graduate by then. Just in time to get a high paying job in that new cement plant the PQ will build in Gaspe !

      And @YL, thanks for sharing another brilliant insight by J F Lisee about the key to a winning referendum. Wow ! They should make Lisee the honorary president of "Intellectuals for Sovereignty". But seriously, Y.L., we wicked Anglos have an old saying : In the kingdom of the blind, the one-eyed man is King. Just ask yourself ... where do I fit in here?

      Enjoy your Sunday afternoon folks.

      "For an intro to "nationalisme civique" try googling..."

      i know wat google is, thanks. i wanted to know what your interpretation was. you know, not to assume things that may not be. so, what is it? and don't you agree a big majority of french canadians would vote yes if they didn't worry about independant quebec's economic viability? of course you do; how does this safe speculation fit with your claim that cultural nationalism is dead?

      "I prefer facts."

      well fact is pq is on its way to a majority, and fact is support for quebec's independance is higher than what it was prior to last referendum. you know how that ended. so how is claiming "they can't get the votes" not reckless in this context?

      and by the way in your reply to y.l, you never addressed the argument, you only took shots at both lisée and y-l. cheap stuff mate.

  41. Reading the different comments today, I noticed a few of you have already handed over the election to the PQ. We haven't even had an announcement yet, or even the election itself. Aren't we jinxing it a bit? For the PQ I mean.
