When one province is so overtly favoured over another, whether it be stupid language laws that force French signs to be twice the size of English.....
Bombardier getting government money that has happened no where else in the country, nor arguably anywhere in the world, during a long economic expansion -- and with no controls on executive compensation or performance.......
Or a government that fires its own justice minister to ensure a Quebec company gets special treatment when they break the law.....loads of PM sympathy for jobs at risk.......
No sympathy for 10X the jobs lost in Alberta.
Or the Montreal mayor can say "no" -- to a critical pipeline that would benefit the whole country.....
Or tolls should apply to every new Canadian bridge or highway. Except of course, the new Champlain bridge in Montreal.
None of this is good for Canada the union. One day it will fracture. I didn't endorse a Prime Minister of Quebec. He is supposed to work for the whole nation!
Makes me appreciate the wisdom of the US founding fathers, they set up a political system where that (favouring one state ) is far less likely to happen.
I know no one thinks this stuff matters, governments just create prosperity, small businesses are all evil -- hey our own finance minister said this, and everyone says it here--- - and foreign investment into Canada -- rock bottom -- doesn't matter. Tax the rich!
You will when you lose your jobs. And then foolishly blame those same small businesses, instead of blaming the the government that destroyed investment and the union we call Canada.
We are weak nation that has pissed away a multitude of advantages. Very sad.
Actually your statement is not accurate!
It's not the size of the sign but the size of the writing on the sign that matters and it is not twice as big but three times the size.
As for the rest of your posting you are delirious.
And from what I read in your past posts on all subjects I don't think I would like to fly with you as a crew member on a pairing.
You sound like a miserable old man.
Actually I am not.
And I am very glad I'll never have to be on any pairings......not my life.
Have a wonderful day.
---- now I could ask exactly what in my delirious post was factually incorrect, but I understand on these issues, logic doesn't exactly rule ------

Little guys get nailed to the wall, big guys get the favors. Been like that forever.
For those who actually have to survive, look at how these fraudsters operate and eventually beat them at their own game. Hard I know, but there is really no choice.
For those who wave the flag, you really need to go back to school. Yer programming is creating more problems than solutions. A serious history lesson would be a good start.
veni, vidi,...... vici non fecit.
LOL, Quebec flag wearers:
"Prime Minister Justin Trudeau responded to the revelations on his way in to a Liberal cabinet meeting Tuesday morning.
"We recognize that 10 years ago there were issues around political financing that have been raised," he said. "When we came to power and when I became leader of the Liberal Party, we made significant changes to the fundraising regime. We have moved forward on transparency and openness, and that is not what happens anymore."
"SNC-Lavalin avoided charges by signing what is known as a "compliance agreement" in 2016 with the Commissioner of Canada Elections after promising not to break the law in the future.
That was not the case for Conservative Peterborough MP Dean DelMastro, who was charged by the commissioner over $21,000 in spending violations in the 2008 federal election and was represented by Ayotte at his 2014 trial."
Yup, nothing to see here, either.............
