As an Albertan working in the construction industry I met plenty of easterners in the last 15 years and I can tell you Quebecers LOVE Alberta's .....money.

They come here to work and bad mouth the place the whole time.

Not much different than the Toronto refugees.

Rob C - I think a lot if not most Quebecers are in either ignorance or denial about Alberta money. Many, if not most, think if they left Canada, they would "get to keep the GST".

I think there is something delusional about the Quebec state.

Anon - At least the Quebecers are coming to... work. Seen much tax evasion in the Alberta construction industry?

First time I went to Alberta I heard a lot of bad-mouthing of Toronto by Albertans. It wouldn't have occurred to me to bad-mouth Alberta -- why would I?
