The public lost their stomach for wishy washy politics when Dion was party leader. Iggy needs to be more decisive.

I went through it 10 years after you, before the [educational system] reform, and this is what I recall: New France = initially to exploit resources, policy changed to development (of note: they paid people for having babies :lol: ) First Nations = trade relationship, allied against the Brits Ste-Fo...

I'm from Quebec, went through the Quebec's education system and still can't believe the crap I 'learned' during those years.
