Quebec’s Human Rights Commission is condemning emergency legislation passed  this spring by the provincial government.

In a 56-page analysis the commission outlines all  the events that led up to Bill 78, namely the regular anti-tuition protests some  of which had turned violent, acts of vandalism committed at Ministry of  Education offices, the refusal of many protesters to abide by court injunctions,  and the gradual shrinking of the number of students on strike.

The emergency legislation imposes limits on protests, requiring any protest  of more than 50 people to notify police eight hours in advance, and provides for  fines of between $1,000 and $5,000 for any individual who prevents someone from  entering an educational institution. Penalties climb to between $7,000 and  $35,000 for a student leader and to between $25,000 and $125,000 for unions or  student federations.

Looking at all this the HRC has come to the same conclusion as many other  critics, including the United  Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights; that the emergency law is a  violation of human rights of freedom of assembly and expression.

The HRC also criticizes the harsh penalties incurred by individuals and  associations for violating the law, or for encouraging others to violate the  law.

Quebec- the province with the most voter volatility

Quebec is the province with the most voter volatility. And a high degree of dissatisfactions with the existing governments.

 A recent Nanos Research Survey suggests support FOR the NDP has dipped from 41.5 per cent to 38.8 per cent. Support for the Liberals in the province has surged from 17.3 per cent to 25.0 per cent. 

And in a new Angus Reid survey,   the Residents in Calgary, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver were polled. Respondents were given a list of descriptions that best reflect their city.   The poll indicates that residents of Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto and Montreal are mostly content with their quality of life, but still have concerns.

By the numbers on the issues:

– Quality of life: Montreal – 75%

– City council doing a good job: Montreal – 22%, two out of every five Montrealers said their municipal  government is going a “very bad job” at the moment.

However, 73 per cent of Montrealers felt their city was doing well at  fostering artistic or cultural activities — the highest percentage of any of  the four cities.

– When asked about their city’s problems, respondents 25% of Montrealers said health care and Hospitals were  a problem.. that is a much too high number

– Infrastructure , the city is on top of its infrastructure needs, only 35 per cent of Montrealers  showed    satisfaction

– The survey also provided respondents with a list of words that could be best used to describe their city as liveable, a place to find a good job, a place to start a business, embracing innovation, and connected and with accessible digital infrastructure. Only 40 per cent of respondents in Montreal.polled said they perceive Montreal; as a city “on the rise,”

When asked about the second biggest problem their cities face,  in Montreal, traffic and transit was the second biggest combined  problem for 15 per cent of those surveyed.

And we already know that most Quebecers rigfhtfuly do believe that the Liberal Ministers, governments of  Quebec are falsely lax in dealing with white collar crimes..

About time that strip clubs, escort services and massage parlours will no longer have access to temporary foreign workers

Human Resources Minister Diane Finley and Immigration Minister Jason Kenney announced earlier Wednesday that strip clubs, escort services and massage parlours will no longer have access to temporary foreign workers under new immigration changes. This is a good, decent move, and let’s get on with creating real jobs, and not enslavement to sex, drug, alcohol.. and the associated crimminals.. see also


Which reminds me I have even as recently met many non Canadians persons who never officially worked in Canada, have never contributed to obtain legitimate benefits, who also get subsidized housing rental units in Quebec, they also get Supplemental pensions benefits, and do even own nice cars, plus they regularly also travel abroad to manage their undeclared incomes, properties there now too.. How come??

and no one does anything about this still too?
