Radio-Canada and La Presse ask AIMS ‘Can Québec afford “the Québec model”‘?

What model for economic and social development should Québec follow (“Quel modèle pour le Québec?”)? That was the question asked by Radio-Canada et La Presse at their joint conference in Montréal on Wednesday, Decemeber 1st, 2004. At the invitation of the organisers, AIMS President  Brian Lee Crowley participated in a panel that was asked to opine on whether Quebeckers can afford the Québec model (“A-t-on les moyens du modèle québécois?”). Dr. Crowley said the answer was an unambiguous “Yes”, but that the far more interesting question was “Are Quebeckers getting good value for money from the Québec model?”
