“The poorer Ontario is, the less other provinces are going to get,” [expert Tom Courchene, economist at Queen’s University and senior scholar at the Institute of Research on Public Policy] says. “It’s a big issue and it’s going to get bigger.”
When Quebec gets eight billion in perennial transfer payments, it's building the nation; when lost-its-mojo Ontario gets two, it's destroying the country.
Here's an idea: every province should get an equal subsidy. Anything less threatens to break up the country.
And that's the way the Ball bounces.
