Oh, dear ... this is a wee bit embarrassing:
Quebec a loser in stimulus sweepstakes: CP analysis
By Heather Scoffield (CP) – 13 hours ago
OTTAWA — Stimulus money earmarked for Quebec is only trickling down to communities in the province, while other provinces are awash in federal funds, an analysis by The Canadian Press shows.
Haggling among three levels of government has dramatically slowed the flow of construction and jobs, prompting municipal leaders to ask for an extension of the two-year deadline set by Ottawa.
"We're wasting time," said Bernard Genereux, the president of the Federation of Quebec Municipalities and mayor of St-Prime, QC. "It's punishing municipalities. It's preventing us from getting to work. We're losing the first year of the program."
Quickly, then ... we need a bright, shiny thing for the mentally crippled. Oh, look.
And all was well in Retard-o-ville again.
