Quebec to receive $250M from Ottawa for asylum seekers

Quebec to receive $250M from Ottawa for asylum seekers The Canadian government has announced it will provide $250 million to Quebec to help with costs related to help resettle and provide support to refugees and asylum seekers. The federal funding, which was announced on Thursday, comes months after Quebec Premier François Legault said Ottawa owed $300 million in compensation to cover the costs of asylum seekers arriving in Quebec.

François Legault (pronounced [fʁɑ̃swa ləɡo]; born May 26, 1957) is a Canadian politician and businessman serving as the 32nd and current premier of Quebec since 2018.

  • The annual total renumeration for public officials is public information in Quebec.
  • Here is the annual salary and net worth of Quebec premier François Legault and some of his counterparts.

Harry S. Truman, 33rd President of the United States, once wrote that "no man should go into politics if he wants to get rich, or expect an adequate reward for his services." I'm not sure about President Truman, but the current salary of a sitting President is $400,000.

One could argue that that amount isn't an adequate reward for the years of hard work that some elected officials perform. But keep in mind that modern public officials are brands in themselves. Sure, Justin Trudeau makes $345,400 in salary as Prime Minister but that's a paltry amount if you add that to earnings from speaking fees, endorsements, investments, and the like.

Former Liberal minister Sébastien Proulx announces he's leaving politics

Former Liberal minister Sébastien Proulx announces he's leaving politics QUEBEC — In a setback to the Liberal Party, former education minister Sébastien Proulx has announced he’s leaving politics. At a Friday press conference, Proulx confirmed weeks of rumours he would not complete the mandate voters in his Quebec City riding of Jean-Talon gave him in the general election only 11 months ago. “There is never a good time to leave,” Proulx said. “It was a very difficult decision, gut wrenching.” After giving the best of

The Coalition Avenir Québec is a centre-right to right-wing Quebec nationalist and autonomist provincial political party in Quebec , Canada.

Quebec's Premier, François Legault is one of those modern elected officials in every sense. Prior to becoming a politician, Legault was the co-founder of Air Transat. According to The Canadian Press, Legault's personal net worth was $9.86 million in 2018. Tax documents indicate that Legault has $4.5 million in a Montreal property, a retirement savings portfolio worth $5.78 million, and a $471,000 line of credit.

All that on top of an annual indemnity of $100,489 and a total remuneration of $196,193, funded by the government.

Luckily for us, all this information is public knowledge thanks to an obligation for transparency (something the Legault administration prides itself on).

Despite that, many people might look at this and think something is amiss — especially considering the vast net worth the Premier. This also brings up the issue that in the CAQ caucus, men still make more than women.

Federal leaders should do more to fight Bill 21

Federal leaders should do more to fight Bill 21 The federal election campaign is only hours old and the party leaders want us to know they have bold solutions to the problems that ail us, that they’ll stop at nothing to make sure we have clear choices on Oct. 21. Except, it seems, when it comes to one of the most important moral and social questions we can think of: whether all Canadians, regardless of where they live, should have their fundamental rights respected. We speak, of course, of Bill 21, the frankly discriminatory Quebec law that prohibits provincial employees in many “positions of authority,” from teachers to police officers to judges and prosecutors, from wearing religious symbols or headgear at work.

Montrealers who challenged assisted dying laws see ruling as 'ray of hope'

Montrealers who challenged assisted dying laws see ruling as 'ray of hope' Nicole Gladu and Jean Truchon, the two Montrealers who challenged the country's assisted dying laws, say a ruling that deemed parts of the legislation too restrictive should be seen as a victory for those who struggle with debilitating conditions.

"Now, it's really a matter of personal decision. It's up to me or it's up to Mr. Truchon or other people like us to decide if we prefer the quality of life to the quantity of life," Gladu said.

An introduction to the new Quebec nationalism and the tricks it plays on federal leaders

An introduction to the new Quebec nationalism and the tricks it plays on federal leaders The new nationalism in Quebec is a political mindset that has displaced sovereignty as the main alternative to federalism and, as the first week of the campaign has already made clear, will define how the leaders court votes in the province this fall.

At least we can say that Legault is the most transparent of the bunch as he's always been clear and honest about his wealth and public salary.

Do you think public officials should be making such a high salary?
