A Progressive Canadian Coalition is Good for Quebec and Canada: Chantal Hébert

"[Author and economist Brian Lee] Crowley would disband the social union; he would abolish most social transfers to the provinces and leave them to finance their social safety nets according to their means, out of an expanded taxation field. With its redistributive functions reduced to a minimum, the federal government would be free to focus on the management of the economic union....Unless Quebecers re-engage in a progressive Canadian coalition, the balance [of power] will tilt toward the deconstruction of social Canada that Crowley so passionately promotes. That could come no later than the next election, with the potential advent of a Conservative majority rooted outside Quebec."
- Chantal Hébert, "Quebec, Canada and author's case for a do-over," The Toronto Star, September 22, 2009
