As I read the news today, I was not surprised by a former CBC Radio Canada employee and immigration minister Bernard Drainville to come out with a tale so twisted that it should be considered unbelievable at best.
As usual from out of the woodwork comes another pekebiste worm that is trying very hard to make a name for him in Kebec political circles.
But in order to draw attention to himself he comes out swinging at the federal government by accusing it of stealing Kebecois manpower to provide labour for Alberta's oil sands. This mans thinking is very outdated and obsolete, in that the accusation is facetious at best. Because it does not consider that there is now a 25% unemployment rate in Kebec. And those jobs in Alberta's oil sands would be high paying jobs for these out of work Kebecois.
What are the real reasons for Drainville's false accusations about the federal government stealing Kebecois man power for Alberta's oil sands? If these Kebecois workers move to Alberta then it would mean a better standard for these now out of work people. Could the real reason be that if Kebecois workers moved to Alberta, the federal transfer payments to Kebec would drop appreciably, and Drainville does not want that? So, in effect unemployed Kebecois workers are encouraged not to seek employment elsewhere in Canada, if it creates a drop in federal transfer payments to Kebec, which amounts to billions of dollars yearly from English-speaking Canada. And that is what it is all about to the separatist Parti Kebecois, which really does not give tinkers damn least of all the workers and the unusually high unemployment rate in Kebec at the present time. There certainly will not be any brain drain from Kebec, because there are no brains in Kebec anyway.
So, it is time for former Kebecois immigration minister Bernard Drainville to sit up smell the roses and put away all his facetious arguments about Alberta stealing Kebecois labour!
Je me souviens!
