Jean Charest’s Legacy

I have to ask myself if Jean Charest has ever heard of Maude Barlow, the co-author of “Blue Gold” who writes eloquently about the corporate theft of the world’s water. If he had, Charest might have thought twice before he proudly announced Quebec’s ‘blue-gold’ program of hydroelectric production (read about it in the Gazette). Then again, for all intensive purposes, isn’t that Charest’s plan?  To convert Quebec’s rivers into reservoirs for the sake of cheap aluminum… What would Barlow do?

In other news… “There was something uncomfortably Kim Jong-il-ish about the massive “Great Builder of Quebec” billboards that provincial Liberals erected in honour of Jean Charest at their general council meeting last weekend. But the boards did serve to at least clarify what the third-term premier wants future generations of Quebeckers to remember about him…” Can you believe it? Read about Charest’s legacy of white elephants in the Globe and Mail
