I agree with you on that point. One must not forget that with the three-way-split formula, everyone is paying. Whether it comes from Quebec, from the provinces, the territories, the federal government or the municipalities, everyone is paying one third. In my opinion, fairness means that everyone participates.
It is like the economic stimulus: some provinces got more than others. There were good reasons, I agree, but that does not mean that the other provinces should be left out. Sometimes, it is the opposite: one province should perhaps get more than another, to a certain extent. We cannot be fair on one single issue whereas, on the next, the issue of fairness is not taken into account.
Fairness, to my mind, means that everyone is entitled to what is coming to them, at the end of the day. I do not know what you think, but sometimes we can't spend on some days, whereas we can the following day. Some people received more funding thanks to the economic recovery, whereas others received less. Under those circumstances, how can we be fair? That is why I want fairness to be included in all government programs.
I do not recall if it was Mr. Cunningham or Mr. Nyce, but earlier on you spoke of the future. In your opinion, what will the future look like after March 31, 2011?
