Quebec is breaking up everywhere… and who cares?


Unfortunately, in Quebec we are capable of getting used to unacceptable situations.

Pieces of ceiling fall in classrooms in Quebec and injure a young man! Good ! Nobody goes to the barricades… In fact, nobody is really surprised.

There are still 1,000 teachers missing in our schools, but hey, they are less than 8,000. And it’s not about substantially increasing their salaries…

One in five young people goes to school on an empty stomach. The food assistance program begins one month after school starts and ends before the end of the year. It is not about studying the feasibility of a food aid program for all.

We have accepted for too long that the Maisonneuve-Rosemont hospital endures with a spit…

We are no longer shocked that our cars are registered with sheets of paper 7 months after the SAAQ blunder!

Home care workers spend 70% of their time traveling or completing paperwork. Good…

To this day, it is still necessary to send faxes within the healthcare network. It’s a disaster to transmit requests.

We offer “reduced sentences” to offenders to avoid suspensions of proceedings. And no one cries badly!

A homeless woman gives birth in a Gatineau camp… The Minister of Social Services asks the mayor who is asking for help to lower her voice.

Don’t lower your voice!

In all of these cases, you realize that it’s never really anyone’s fault.

In fact, only the director general of the SAAQ was fired, before being hired back by the government to unclog the courts.

You can’t make that up.

However, there are solutions!

In education, for example, Professor Simon Landry has just published a very comprehensive short essay on what we could improve.

From the beginning, he points out a big problem that hurts everywhere: bureaucracy. This bureaucracy that feeds, grows and protects itself.

This bureaucracy that prevents innovation. This bureaucracy that is not responsible for anything.

Offers a slimming treatment online. An essential cure if we later want to make real changes.

The CAQ had promised to reduce the burden of the State, but today there are more civil servants than when it was elected. On the other hand, there is a shortage of essential public employees such as teachers, nurses and administrators…

lack of ambition

We also need political ambition.

The Minister of Social Services does not want to aim for zero homelessness.

The Minister of Education doubts the deterioration of schools and refuses to open the door to a universal food program!

The Environment Minister lets his colleagues talk about reducing car use on our roads and adapting to climate change.

Look at Peter Fitzgibbon. He has the ambition to make Quebec a center for the battery industry and is investing the necessary money in it.

Some of your colleagues should take notes.
