Is Ontario becoming the new Quebec?
Well, Q is trying to change now. Not much chance.
Ontario, if it exists under the Liberals, will not become Q, but more like Japan. Endless central planning for photo-ops leads to things like the Niagara Tunnel to Nowhere, and the 'Men are from Mars' thing. We all know every other disaster. We also have giant State-run companies (the old company), and most of the economy run by monopolies, and state-protected banks. That is why we don't have productive investment.
Speaking of the old company, I love this article.
There's a better one in Automotive News, but you can only get to it once. Seems they hired a bozo engineer, who controlled everything. He designed a flimsy switch and covered it up. Now, I'm not saying I've seen this a million times before, but it is a classical result of a dysfunctional bureaucracy. I've written up some fine local examples. GM used to be a monopoly and that is how it is structured. They now shipped in a whole bunch of new people who say they don't know anything, and fired a lot of scapegoats. At least we retire them.
