Hugh has an interesting platform for a theoretical election run. I agree with most of it and would vote for Hugh. Couple of notes though.
- replace “je me souviens” as a provincial motto. The motto couldn’t be further from my thoughts, who the heck cares and do you really think it changes anything to anything?? Interesting “urban legend” though about the meaning that’s passed along anglo side according to him. They also discuss it in the comments and I don’t think it’s “looking back” it’s “knowing where you’re from”. But again, who cares?
- official endorsement of net neutrality I’d stretch net neutrality to include more “unbridled” mobile access which I’ve mentioned here before. Would also be a good idea to have something regarding DRM, copyright, public domain, etc.
- education Agreed except for the trilingual thing though. How about more people actually bilingual on the west island and “en région” before thinking trilingual? There are a lot, should be more. I’d be 100% for more flexibility on learning a third language if you don’t need the second language classes. (But I think that’s already pretty open, I’m just still bitter about when I was in school but that’s a long time ago)
- Defense & Security First off, as Boris mentioned in the comments, since when does Québec have an army? :-p Second, no need for a stronger military, what does it help?? The only country to fight is the US and really, even with 100% of the budget on the military we’d still have to “go guerilla” to make a dent.
My recommendation would be to take scandinavian countries, average out their policies and use those for everything ;).
