The Quebec Liberals and City of Montreal now had the police looking in the wrong place too

Now  this year, the City of Montreal revealed, through an access to information request, that the student protests had cost the city more than $11.6 million in overtime just in the Month  of Aug. All this wasted expenditure  while major rampant corruption was being carried out next to the Justice center, police station all  unstopped and unchecked, the foxes in the Montreal City Hall were continuing to steal money from the taxpayers and City Hall executives, personnel falsely went along with it? 

.

The Students next had anway  won still and got their Justice and now we need real justice in our City Halls… and in the meat plants now too

It was the decent thing to do for Quebec’s first female Premier Pauline Marois

.

.

Marois scraps tuition fee hikes first day on the job Her first day on the job and Premier Pauline Marois didn’t lose any time scrapping former Liberal government policies: University tuition fee hikes were cancelled, a law restricting public demonstrations was repealed.  The elimination of tuition hikes marked a historic day for the province’s student movement. The Liberal plan to increase the fees sparked a four-month strike last spring with nightly demonstrations and social unrest throughout the province. Students campaigned hard to defeat the Liberals in the Sept. 4 election. Student leaders declared victory when Ms. Marois announced that tuition fees would be maintained at $2,168 a year without taking back additional money the Liberals had put into student financial aid in an attempt to make the increase more palatable. Ms. Marois said the measure will not cost more than $20-million in the current fiscal year.The Parti Québécois government also repealed the controversial law banning demonstrations, which opponents called a violation of the right to free speech and public assembly.

  Ms. Marois didn’t stop there. She announced the fulfilment of another election promise, saying that Quebeckers will be reimbursed the $200 health tax they paid this year when they file their provincial income tax returns next spring.   http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/marois-scraps-tuition-fee-hikes-first-day-on-the-job/article4558135/

.

It is only common sense that all education should be free.. as educated persons are more likley to get a better paying job and thus pay more taxes too. Jean Charest and his liberals were too self centered to see that truth.. https://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2012/09/05/quebecs-liberals-gambled-sadly-instead-of-providing-good-leadership/

Now watch other provinces in Canada will follow as well..

.

Also Quebec’s new Natural Resources Minister has signalled she will move to ban hydraulic fracturing even as she ordered a new inquiry into the practice, a position that puts development of the province’s   resources of natural gas in doubt. “I cannot see the day when the extraction of natural gas by the fracking method can be done in a safe way,” said Martine Ouellet, a   former Hydro-Québec engineer and long-time defender of the province’s water reserves.  “We will impose a sweeping moratorium, both on exploration and on extraction of shale gas,” she said.   During the campaign, the PQ promised to reform the mining regime, which would be costlier to the industry, and to cancel the $58-million loan that the Liberals offered to the Jeffrey asbestos mine. It also wants to raise taxes on Quebec’s highest income earners. And it will ask the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec to invest $10-billion more in the economy.   Quebec said it will also close its only nuclear plant, Gentilly II, located near Trois-Rivières. Ms. Marois said the closing symbolized her government’s commitment to the protection of the environment and to a “rigorous management of our finances”.          http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/industry-news/energy-and-resources/quebec-gas-in-peril-as-pq-signals-ban/article4557380/

The really bad  Liberals  including DR Philippe Couillard  who had  allowed this province to go down in a mess, corruptions THEY STILL REALLY do not deserve to be a governing party ever. I am not a politician, but as an ordinary Citizen I knew that Dr Porter was likely clearly corrupt, the MUHC corrupted, and the city of Montreal as well and I had objected to it. And if Pauline Marois and her separatist  party fail to address the corruptions now properly, instead of sweeping it under the table as has been done wrongfully  for decades, they too  do not deserve to be a governing party ever Both the Liberals and the PQ parties had failed to properly deal with English language laws already too..

Quebec’s Liberals gambled sadly instead of providing good leadership

Sep 5, 2012 Shocking news. Montreal, Quebec, Man apperantly tries to  tried to kill also the newly elected first female   Party Quebecois Premier  Pauline Marois, who is  to become Quebec’s 1st female premier ,  Pauline Marois and the Parti Québécois during her election rally victory speech. Quebec premier-designate was hustled off stage, just before 1 a.m.. A man in his 40s was shot dead an another critically wounded near where Pauline Marois was giving her victory speech to supporters before midnight Tuesday, prompting a swift response from the Parti Québécois leader’s security team and an evacuation of the downtown Montreal concert hall. A man was swiftly arrested by the police present and a rifle seized. A second man was critically injured in the incident, according to Montreal police. The Gun death marrs the narrow win by the Quebec separatists. The party won a minority government with a weaker-than-desired result, of 54 seats won out of 125, that could severely limit its ability to pursue its independence agenda and likley lead to new elections with the NDP to be fully  involved next as well.The PQ’s 54 seats,fell nine short of the 63 needed for a majority in the 125-seat legislature. The  Liberals had a far better-than-expected result and won 50 ridings, holding onto official Opposition status.  Quebec solidaire won two seats. It was certainly the most tragic, and least jubilant, election win in the PQ’s long history. The PQ’s score in the popular vote was lower than any time it has ever governed, with just 32 per cent. That was just one percentage point more than the governing Liberals, who staved off the electoral annihilation many had predicted. The new Coalition party had 27 per cent.

.

The stupid, immoral Gamble that did not pay off.. Quebec Liberal  Party leader  Jean Charest placed a big bet and loss his own political seat even in the Quebec provincial election. With all the ridings counted, the Liberals were at 50 to the Parti Québécois’s 54 and the Coalition Avenir Québec party’s 19. Québec Solidaire held the remaining two, the Liberals slid to second place in Quebec’s national assembly, and Charest lost his own seat. PQ Pauline Marois to lead as Quebec’s 1st female premier . Oppostion leader  Pauline Marois and the Parti Québécois claimed victory over the incumbent Liberals Tuesday night, winning a minority government in the provicial election.

.

It happened all because the  Quebec Liberal  Party leader  Jean Charest had  gambled that: an unusual summer election would benefit from voters too distracted by vacations and long, torpidly hot days to be whipped up into anti-government fervour. Quebec Liberal  Party leader  Jean Charest gambled that going to the polls during the second week of university classes would spotlight Quebec’s student unrest, an issue on which his iron hand and unwavering resolve gave him the most credibility among the major party leaders.   Quebec Liberal  Party leader  Jean Charest gambled that it was better to head into a campaign now, before the Charbonneau Commission inquiry into corruption in the provincial construction industry starts its autumn hearings — and potentially exposes nefariousness within the Quebec Liberal Party. Quebec Liberal  Party leader  Jean Charest and  his party now gambled, and they  lost. The Liberal party also lost key MNAs: junior finance minister Alain Paquet went down to defeat, as did junior natural resources minister Serge Simard, Agriculture Minister Pierre Corbeil and Natural Resources Minister Clément Gignac. In the entirety of the greater Montreal area, the Liberals suffered a net loss of three seats, but the PQ loss was higher. The péquistes fell from 28 ridings to 24. Overall, the Liberals held all their seats on Montreal Island, keeping the 20 ridings that went red in 2008. Six of the remaining seats went to the PQ, and two to Québec Solidaire. In Laval, the Liberals lost Laval-des-Rapides and failed to capture the new seat of Sainte-Rose.

Jean Charest: Bio Born: June 24, 1958, in Sherbrooke, Que.

Education: Law degree, Université de Sherbrooke, 1980.

Political career: Elected to House of Commons as a Progressive Conservative MP in 1984. Became youngest-ever cabinet minister in 1986. Federal PC leader from 1995-98. Named Quebec Liberal leader in 1998. Elected premier in 2003, re-elected in 2007 and 2008.

.

But before his big false gamble the clearly  Bad premier of Quebec Jean Charest had falsely abused his own Quebec University students… and he now had  paid the big price for it too.

The former Quebec provincial student movement leader Léo Bureau-Blouin who had  become a PQ candidate in the Laval riding hadhas   defeated the Liberal junior finance minister Alain Paquet and next  Léo Bureau-Blouin vowed that his  victorious Parti Québécois will   will revoke the tuition hike imposed by the Liberals that sparked the province’s months of student unrest, and will repeal Bill 78 (also known as Law 12), the contentious legislation that restricts protest.”It shows that when youth mobilize, we can do big things,” Bureau-Blouin said of his victory. Bureau-Blouin was a leader of the Quebec student protest movement until his term as president of the FECQ, the federation of Quebec college students, came to an end June 1.

MONTREAL – A PQ ministerial decree cancelling tuition hikes, taken barely 24  hours after Pauline Marois was elected premier, is being hailed as a victory by  the Quebec Federation of University Students (FEUQ). FEUQ President Martine Desjardins considers the decree to be the symbolic  end of a two-year battle but she vows that the work is not yet finished, as the  group intends to make other proposals at the upcoming summit of higher education  promised by the Parti Quebecois.

Quebec election: No money AVAILABLE for university students

.

.
Ironically and hypocritically  while the  Liberal Quebec Premier Jean Charest faced even still very numerous QUEBEC STUDENT PROTESTS about his plans to RAISE UNIVERSITY EDUCATION COSTS SIGNIFICANTLY and now also  faced  a new political  candidacy, the  anti-corruption hero Jacques Duchesneau, who had just  announced Sunday he is running for the Coalition Avenir Québec party , yes all while  the anti-corruption platform is also still  dominating too  headlines issue  in the Quebec province throughout the early days of this  QUEBEC  PROVINCIAL  ELECTION Campaign,  the same JEAN CHAREST HAD NOW  ALSO  NEXT HAD CLEARLY INDULGED in more corruption  by trying to BUY  VOTES, when he said, would  give $100 per child every year to families with children in public elementary schools. The initiative would begin in 2013 and would cost an estimated $45 million a year, assuming 450,000 eligible children. No money AVAILABLE  for university students Jean Charest  and his Liberals HAD CLEARLY said before his threat of clearly losing the election ehh..
.

A hero was born last September, when Jacques Duchesneau’s report for the  Quebec transport department on construction collusion was leaked to the media  (by Duchesneau himself, he recently revealed.) After Duchesneau concluded testifying on the pervasiveness of “dirty money”  in Quebec politics last June before the Charbonneau Commission, created as a  result of his leak, people approached him in public to encourage him to run for  office.They got their wish on Sunday, when François Legault introduced the  anti-corruption crusader as a candidate for Legault’s fledgling Coalition Avenir  Québec party.  http://www.montrealgazette.com/news/Duchesneau+potential+game+changer/7049185/story.html

.

Jacques Duchesneau presently states that the Quebec government, the Parti Quebecois and the City of Montreal lawyers are all now corrupted, bad but why did he leave out his fellow police offciers who had let the corruption go on the last 50 years at least

A report by French-language Radio-Canada said provincial police cancelled a surveillance operation , the report cited anonymous sources suggesting police get cold feet when an operation gets too close to the government.

.

so this is why corruption in Quebec continued for such a long time? and is this so now in other provinces as well?

.

According to PQ MNA Bernard Drainville, a questionable real estate deal  involving a piece of land on the south shore could link the Liberals with the  controversial Catania Construction company. He claims that at least $40,000 in political contributions from Catania was  rewarded with the $600,000 sale of land by the Riverside School Board to the  company. According to Drainville, the deal was approved without public tender by then  Education Minister Michelle Courchesne. At the time of the announcement, the Liberals also pledged $3.8 million in  public funds to support the project. The community centre was never built.  Instead, the company re-sold the land, to a condo developer for about $1.5  million. The PQ alleged that Catania made $1 million in profit. “It is not normal again that the Liberal interest is more important than the  public interest. It is not normal that Catania is making $1 million in less than  a year, while our school boards are crying for money and the south shore  community is asking for a new community centre,” said PQ MNA Bernard  Drainville.“Why is it yet again that the friends of the Liberal Party are cashing in on  public money while all these public needs that need to be fulfilled.”

.

What this not the first time Jean Charest’s government was accused of favoritism?  Similar allegations were made in a damning report by Jacques Duchesneau, the  former head of anti-corruption squad. All of those allegations are before a public inquiry being led by Justice  France Charbonneau. The findings from that commission will be released about two  weeks after Quebecers vote-in a new government. The Liberal timing of  of the election took this into account?

QUEBEC MAD DICTATORS WENT OVERBOARD

SIMPLE COMMON SENSE WOULD HAVE REVEALED THAT TO YOU ALREADY TOO..

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.
