If it Ain't Broke...

Wait, the fiscal imbalance is broken again?

«Je n’ai pas de comptes à rendre au gouvernement fédéral sur la gestion des fonds au Québec», a-t-il laissé tomber. Pour lui le règlement du problème du déséquilibre fiscal passe aussi par une solution au financement de l’éducation post-secondaire, malmenée par les coupures d’Ottawa dans les années 1990.

«Comme premier ministre du Québec je vous dis que ce n’est pas réglé et qu’on va continuer à réclamer du financement pour le post-secondaire», a déclaré M. Charest.

In case you dont read French, that means Bubbles, Premier of Quebec, has decided that the fiscal imbalance, isn’t exactly solved. Apparently, education money wasn’t included, despite the fact that the money that was transferred in the fiscal imbalance deal included more than enough to cover for the cuts made in the 90s.

Well good luck with that one Bubbles. You were doing great in the polls. Now you come out and say one of your biggest accomplishments was a sham.

I’m sure when you take credit for it again in the next provincial election, Mario Dumont will be there to burst your bubble…

We certainly haven't heard about the fiscal imbalance in quite a while. I guess that's a symptom of everyone paying less attention to Gilles Duceppe. It will be interesting to see how Quebecers vote this time around.
