Repeatedly, we are told that Quebec is deep in debt, with our politicians either unwilling or incapable to do anything about it. It is getting worse; health care programs are inefficient and expenses are out of     control. We have the highest sales tax in North America.

Known as a welfare province, Quebec will soon be receiving $9 billion annually from other provinces to survive. Our    politicians refuse to develop the province’s natural resources so they can stay poor to receive transfer payments; like welfare recipients refusing to work because the money is free. Government employee    pensions are overly generous and unsustainable without higher taxation.
Those who pay no income taxes,    together with those who are government employees, make up over 60% of voters. They will never vote for someone who wants to cut their income sources.
The Quebec Liberal Party is disorganized and drove the province deeper in debt, downloaded huge expenses to municipalities, and refused to look into corruption until forced. The Coalition Avenir Quebec is invisible in Western Quebec and has no track record of experience. The Parti Quebecois has ignored Quebec’s huge financial mess, has increased the debt and, has only one objective … to separate from Canada … even though they have no clue how to finance it if they win!
So, who do we vote for in the election? Listen to the candidates carefully; none will dedicate themselves to dealing with the above most urgent matters. They won’t present their plan because they don’t have one and don’t want one. It would make them accountable, and this would be hard work.
Imagine a politician standing up and telling what he/she plans to do to prevent the government unions from continuing to drive up the costs of our province? Courage and leadership are not available.
Election candidates want only one thing … a nice job. No matter who we vote for,  voters are cornered.
