Danielle Smith: la vraie indépendance Canada Économie En Citations Philosophie Québec

Danielle Smith

Extrait du discours prononcé par Danielle Smith, la cheffe du Wild Rose Alliance, lors du rassemblement du Réseau-Liberté Québec:

« What we have been told about our national past – about our common achievements, our founding attitudes and values, our economic development and constitutional purpose – is a systematic fabrication foisted upon us by the left-wing intelligentsia that took political control of our country in the 1960s during the ministries of Pearson, Lesage and Trudeau.

Prior to that – all the way back to the very beginnings of Canada before Confederation – we were a radically free-enterprise and small-government nation – moreso even than the Americans. “Better British liberty,” our ancestors proudly declared, “than American equality.”

Good heavens, where did that spirit of liberty disappear to? What we now tout as traditional Canadian values and virtues – unearned entitlements, paying people not to work, paying regions not to succeed – and not to secede – all these were unthinkable to the stalwart people who founded and built Canada. Today’s celebration of the easy ride and what’s-in-it-for-me were not the essence of Canadian character, they were the complete antithesis of it. »

Le Québec dans le rouge Économie En Chiffres Gauchistan Québec

Voici comment ont évolué la dette et le PIB du Québec depuis 1987 (et je vous préviens, c’est assez effrayant comme chiffres):

Québec Dette

Depuis 1987, la dette a augmenté 2 fois plus rapidement que le PIB.  Autrement dit, si Vincent Lacroix avait été un politicien, ses « investissements » auraient été légaux.

Autre élément extrêmement préoccupant, la croissance du PIB au Québec est devenue dépendante des dépenses gouvernementales.  À titre d’exemple, pour l’année 2011, on prévoit que le PIB va croître de 14,0 milliards de dollars alors que les « investissements » publics seront de 22,3 milliards de dollars.

Si le Ministère du Développement durable était fidèle à sa mission, il imposerait un moratoire sur les dépenses gouvernementales.

The Climate Refugee Hoax
Investor’s Business Daily

Five years ago, the U.N. predicted that by 2010 some 50 million people would be fleeing climate change, rising seas, mega-hurricanes and so on. Instead, no islands have sunk and their populations are booming.

It’s been said that when you make a prediction and provide a date, never give a number, and if you give a number, never provide a date. That way you can always claim to be right, even when you are wrong, and that it just hasn’t happened yet.

The United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) made that mistake in 2005 when it produced a map showing areas to be impacted by the effects of climate change. These areas would produce 50 million « climate refugees » driven out by rising sea levels, increased frequency and ferocity of hurricanes, disruptions in food production, etc.

As related by blogger Gavin Atkins, who unearthed the forgotten prophecy of doom, some of these areas have conducted censuses and if they are facing any problems at all, it’s caused by their rapid and sustained population growth. If anybody is leaving any of the danger zones, it’s because they are getting too crowded.

In 2005, Britain’s Guardian reported the refugee prediction by Janos Bogardi of the Institute for Environment and Human Security at the United Nations University in Bonn. He spoke of « well-founded fears that the number of people fleeing untenable environmental conditions may grow exponentially as the world experiences the effects of climate change. » Well-founded?
