The Economic & Financial Consequences of Going in the Opposite Direction of Every Major Western, Developed Democracy on the Planet: What Quebec Bill 14 Committee members NEED to know about both the short and long term ECONOMIC consequences for all of Quebec if this legislation is enacted
Quebec is NOT in a financial position to tighten laws that make it harder for people to come here, to set up business here, to go to school here – this is precisely the opposite of what a tanking economy should be doing right now. We NEED to be opening ourselves up to the world, not closing ourselves off; in so doing, we are literally taking food out of our children’s mouths.
The Quebec business model needs an overhaul that is what Bill 14 CLEARLY demonstrates. We have political leaders who simply do not understand the fundamentals of the NEW global economic era. This, more than anything is what needs to come out of these committee hearings on Bill 14.
ALLiance Quebec 2.0 recommends Bill 14 be scrutinized by economists with international credentials before being rushed through the National Assembly and passed. If this Bill does prove to further erode Quebec’s GDP then we ARE obligated to redraft/reconsider its place in 21st Century Quebec.
