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 sillinessnot shared by most students nor by all Quebecoishas been compounded by mythmaking from Quebec politicians about who ultimately foots the bill for so much of Quebecs existing poor economic policy.
