The Quebec Problem in one photograph
I've often said that the one thing holding Quebec back, far ahead of sovereignty, is the disease of needless bureaucracy and government waste (and/or corruption).
As thousands of protesters march through the streets this evening, I wanted to share this one powerful photograph:
SQ riot cops protecting an area near l'îlot Voyageur, a $500-million pile of nothing that UQAM half-built with money from the education ministry. This scene is a like a weird, self-fulfilling prophecy of government waste. Expensive provincial riot cops keeping students who want free tuition away from a university building that was never completed.
Québec sait faire, les amis.
