Mr. Speaker, the Quebec minister responsible for restructuring just released a fifth study, this time on the human development index, its concept and its use.
The author of the study tends to show that a sovereign Quebec would have the required potential to develop further and that its quality of life could even be better than that of Canada.
We really wonder how the minister can attach any value to a study whose main conclusions, as the author himself admits,
were reached by deliberately changing the criteria used internationally to determine the human development index.
The PQ minister can release all the studies he wants; Quebecers will never forget that Canada is still the best country in the world.
The minister should stop wasting taxpayers' money on studies which do not serve their interests at all.
