For anyone who has paid attention to the student protests/riots in Quebec over the past few months and knows anything about the vast sums of money transferred between governments in this country, there has been no shortage of ridiculous demands from the Quebec students who are “on strike.” Demands include free tuition and an end to functioning free markets. But their silliness—not shared by most students nor by all Quebecois—has been compounded by mythmaking from Quebec politicians about who ultimately foots the bill for so much of Quebec’s existing poor economic policy.

In the 1992 referendum on the Charlottetown Accord, British Columbians rejected the proposed amendments to Canada’s constitution with the highest “no” vote in the country (68.3%). Also in the “no” camp were Manitoba (61.6%) and then Alberta (60.2%). Four other provinces also turned it down and the package barely passed in Ontario.
