Far fewer than 10 per cent of those projects are in Quebec, Canada's second most populous province. Of the 4,833 projects published on the government's centrepiece map as of Oct. 25, less than 300 are in Quebec. Ontario claims more than 2,500, while Alberta and British Columbia both have more than 300 each. This figures in with some other independent analysis of the spending. Quebec may not get their project money before the deadline. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
