Big Problems In Canada

Canada may have huge hidden problems. There’s a housing bubble in its major cities, including backwater Montreal. But a few weeks ago the CBC and its French language arm announced massive cuts. Then yesterday, we heard from our daughter that Jewish General Hospital, one of Montreal’s biggest hospitals, had a huge deficit and that all workers would have to work a week without pay, to be paid back to them in their retirement packages (yeah, right). In addition, there would be major cutbacks in health care services, including making cancer patients wait additional months for scans and treatments.
The province of Quebec is spending billions to rebuild crumbling infrastructure that it ignored for 40 years, and now it can’t afford to care for sick people or pay the health care workers that care for them. Yet the tax structure Quebec is the most onerous in the Western Hemisphere. WTF?
