Quebec is Canada’s largest province territorially and is very highly
populated. Quebec is located near the country’s economic activity and has a
wide variety of resources within its territory. Despite these
circumstances, Quebec is one of the poorest provinces in Canada. Montreal,
a city located in the province of Quebec, is the poorest city inside of
Quebec’s desire for sovereignty arises from the fact that the Canadian
government has promoted the economic development of the Toronto region, at
the expense of all the other regions of the country. “Quebec’s geographic
location has tied it to the north-eastern American economies, which continue
to shift westward. As this shift occurs, the Canadian businesses and
industries linked with it also shift to the west, to Toronto. The increase
in north-south trade, especially NAFTA, has helped to move the trade centers
from cities like Montreal and Winnipeg to more geographically and
linguistically favorable markets of Toronto and southern Ontario. As the
markets migrate west, so do their headquarters. If the actual separation
occurred it is a realistic notion that more business people would leave
Quebec to stay with the rest of Canada” (students.washington.edu). This
migration of the economy westward is expected to take away from Quebec’s
revenue and increase the provincial deficit by 1.2 billion dollars.
Montreal, Quebec’s largest city, is struggling to maintain it’s
If Quebec were to achieve national sovereignty, the people of Quebec
would be obligated to assume their share of Canada’s national debt. Quebec’
s individual estimated share of the debt is estimated to be around 108.4
billion dollars. This responsibility would hinder Quebec’s drive for
economic stability and prosperity.
“The current indecision over the status of Canada is already deterring
potential investors that Quebec needs to support itself as a sovereign
nation. As an independent state, Quebec would also be much smaller than it
was as a member of Canada. This decrease in size would also decrease the
diversity of revenue sources provided by a larger jurisdiction meaning
Quebec cannot guarantee investors of their ability to spread the risks of a
defaulted market” (students.washington.edu). Separation from Canada would
hurt both Canada and the “state of Quebec”, but Quebec would feel it more
because they are a much smaller jurisdiction with a much less diverse source
of revenue. “Quebec would also have more trouble with investors because
Quebec is a smaller country, with political instability, a higher debt ratio
and they have not established a credit rating in the world market as Canada
If Quebec were to achieve national sovereignty anytime soon, the new
“Republic of Quebec” would have to rely heavily on foreign assistance
(investment/trade) to become a viable and competitive global economic power.
With the assumption that Canada would not support an independent Quebec, the
financial situations of Quebec would have to rebuild with capital from
outside nations to become stabilized and successful.diciembre 4, 2003 a las 9:27 pm #196903
…y de paso el Gobierno LIberal dijo hoy que no pueden bajar los impuestos porque el hueco fiscal que dejaron "los socialistas del PQ" es tan inmenso y con secuelas tan largas que los mas probable es que las cosas suban en vez de bajar. Pero no importa, venganse paca!
