New Blueprint for Quebec


Québec solidaire, on the other hand, proposes genuinely creative and ambitious solutions. They would provide universal prescription drug insurance, as create a provincial production, research, and development centre for pharmaceuticals to partner it. The project would make drugs more accessible, and save the province over two billion dollars in health costs. Their Plan Vert project – like Charest’s Plan Nord – would create over a hundred thousand jobs. The jobs created by Plan Nord, however, are likely to be (given the nature of mining and extraction) short-term and badly-paid. Instead, Plan Vert is centered on the development of clean energy, the development of electric transportation, and a general reduction in the consumption of energy.
