That was certainly a hyperbolic, one-sided opinion piece with lots of bold statements:

There is no shortage of stories of Quebec’s exodus over the years.

But nothing to really back any of them up... besides opinion.

You also got me thinking about economies and how we judge economies. What is a "healthy" economy? What are the metrics we use to determine that? How effective are our traditional economic metrics for determining the social health and vibrancy of a city? Mr. Thompson seems ready to hang the out-of-business sign around the neck of Quebec solely based on a population shift to the west… a dubious starting point for some trite Quebec-bashing.
