Quebec has no money?

Monique Gagnon-Tremblay is quoted in the Gazette today as saying that she expects to reduce the typical annual increase in our budget spending to 3.2%.

Ok – we have to reign in spending.  It’s agreed.  But let’s do so with a good hard look at the long term.  Let’s look at where we spend money; let’s look at where we invest money.

Investing in education is not “spending”.  It’s investing.  With a fantastic return.  Are we spending our education money in all the right places?  Well, I think there is still work to be done there.  So let’s do that work.  But at the same time, let’s make sure that we continue to invest in a guaranteed return:  an educated society is a more productive society, in every way.
