Quebec Taxpayers money and Brain Drain from Quebec

55 per cent of McGill MDs who finished their residency in 2009 were practising in Quebec as of July 2011, according to figures from the Canadian Medical Association. That compares with 91 per cent of Laval University medical grads who were still in province, 90 per cent from the University of Montreal and 76 per cent of Sherbrooke University trainees. The largest portion of departing McGill MDs — nearly half of those who left Quebec — went to Ontario. Tuition is heavily subsidized at the province’s universities, with the Quebec Education Ministry estimating it costs taxpayers upward of $160,000 to train each doctor.

A Quebec government under the Coalition Avenir Québec party would use the long-dormant notwithstanding clause in the Charter of Rights and Freedoms to try to keep doctors who get trained in the province from leaving, CAQ leader François Legault says. “It doesn’t make sense that from McGill, after five years, half the doctors have left Quebec.”Legault, also has said med students from McGill University are especially guilty of exiting Quebec once they’ve finished their education. McGill makes money from Med students for foreign students that taxpayers pay for.

The question as to why they leave Quebec? is answered by the fact they basically had no initial intention of staying here, they used McGill’s reputation as a stepping stone for their career elsewhere.We should thus stop subsidizing their education.  François Legault had gotten copies of my blog too..

By the way we still need better supervision still of all of our doctors and nurses in Quebec too, and stop the illegal 2 tiered medical care system now too.

We all do deserve to get better and to get real medical services. People often complain to me they received poor medical care from a bad charge card happy doctor, and I know it is true, cause I have experienced it many times.

I have often seen it myself, too many nurses and McGill doctors wrongfully in no hurry to help the really sick persons. Now some of these clearly bad persons who still cannot face the negative reality about themselves, the ongoing especially bad nurses and doctors, lie and try to divert my truth by saying I hate doctors and nurses, so well let me make it very clear I do rightfully hate all bad, pretentious, lazy, no good doctors and nurses who are not doing their jobs properly and are causing other people to continue to suffer as a result.. so should we all.. and they should always be fired ASAP.. Hospital administrators included. Is that clear enough for them now? That includes now also all bad cops, bad politicians, bad church pastors, bad news reporters now too..
The McGill Montreal General Hospital cardiac Unit is a good caregiver but I tend to always to get better services at the University of Montreal Hospitals over the other McGill Hospitals.

McGill University Montreal


Cleaning one’s own house first is in order even here too..  Too many McGill administrators, doctors are already known to be bad managers, money hungry while the university too readily takes our tax dollars now too and too allow falsely often abuses us too.. McGill is already very unpopular amongst the majority of Quebec French speaking persons.

MONTREAL – One of the country’s most prestigious universities faces punishment for boosting tuition fees for its MBA program by nearly 900 per cent in an effort to keep it competitive.
McGill University began charging $29,500 annually for its two-year MBA program in September, claiming it was chafing under a provincial tuition freeze capped at roughly $3,400 per year.
Quebec’s education department has been battling the move, saying it undermines the key principle underlying the province’s university system: broad access.
The government finally announced Tuesday that the Montreal-based school would also be fined for its actions.
“It’s an exceptional measure,” Education Minister Line Beauchamp said in Quebec City. “We will have figures on the penalty (amount) soon.”
Beauchamp added that it was unacceptable for a Quebec university to charge such high rates for a regular degree program, arguing that it hurt the integrity of the university system.
