A week before the Quebec election, Prime Minister Stephen Harper poured $3 billion into La Belle Province.
The PM says he did this to end the "fiscal imbalance" but many believe the real goal was to help Jean Charest's Liberals defeat the nasty separatists.
And if that was his goal, it worked --- the $3 billion ensured Charest won 48 seats, which works out to about $63 million per seat.
Good thing, Harper wasn't aiming for a Liberal majority -- that might have bankrupted the country.
Oh and please note, all you folks who think the Green movement is about to reshape our political culture.
The Quebec Green Party won a paltry four percent of the popular vote and no seats, in one of the most pro-environment province's in the country.
Watch for their federal cousins to suffer the same fate in the next national election.
