The Pauline Marois Parti Kebecois government is in the business of using Federal Transfer Payments to hire members of the language Police (Tongue Troopers) to enforce its laws that ban the use of the English Language in Kebec, even though it is an OFFICIAL Language of CANADA, while that very money been transferred by the federal government of Canada to Kebec is money that it has received from English- speaking TAXPAYERS in the main. That federal government of Canada should put Kebec on notice that it cannot use money from federal transfer payments to the province to hire members of the Language Police, and should it do so, that all transfer payments by Canada will cease forthwith.
The second point is that Canada-Europe Free Trade Agreement should not compensate provinces that previously had advantages given to its dairy industries as in the case Kebec, which was previously given by Federal Liberal governments in Ottawa, undue advantage over all other Canadian provinces. Now Kebec will no longer have that advantage, because of the import of cheeses from the European Union. Thus, what goes around comes around and Kebec will just have to grin and bear it. This COMPREHENSIVE ECONOMIC and TRADE AGREEMENT between Canada and Europe will no doubt create a level playing field, where Kebec will no longer have any advantages over other provinces in Canada. If adhered to, this could be a boon for other Canadian provinces, provided that all parties concerned work hard together to make sure that it advances trade does not give any special treatment to either side.
Now we will see whether Kebec`s Agropur Cheese in Drummondville can deal with the issue of dairy products fairly, and that the cheese markets will not be used to give any advantages like it had before. So the keynote for any agreement should be based on fairplay in spirit and in practice.
But there is a fly in the ointment and that is that Ontario Dairy Farmers who previously lost their Milk Quotas, which were then given to Kebec, should now demand a reinstatement of their previously lost Milk Quotas. After all Ontario did have a very large Dairy Industry before the advent of the federal government Milk Quota system.
There must be no special privileges accorded Kebec in any industry, and Kebec should get the same treatment s any other province. That is what was really missing from the equation in the past and it is time to give provincial equality its true meaning, by having a level playing field in all areas, with privileges for none.
