I cannot help but feel that Canada would be better off without Quebec.Like the majority of the natives,Quebec is nothing but a burden to Canada.We would all be richer and happier without them.

Good on Marois! This is a very comprehensive deal, which will be closing soon.

This deal has the possiblility to really improve, or reduce Canadian standard of living, as the EU would be able to bid on fed, prov, and even municipal jobs. Also there are pharmacy generic med issue's too.

I want to buy a car soon, and this deal being closed will save me 6-7%, but not at the expense of my Country.

Every prov should be questioning what harper is willing to deal.

..... Have there been any warnings that Marois may be scuttled by the judges if she attempts to scuttle anything under federal, not provincial, jurisdiction? Does she have the power to scuttle anything? Read the constitution!

..... A trade deal between Canada and the EU is intended to benefit all concerned, including Quebec, and will mean more competition. Compare with all other trade deals - to what extent they actually benefit or harm Canada, including Quebec. Do they cause more unemployment here?
