From Orangutan: Good riddance, Line Beauchamp,

Thank you for resigning from your position as Quebec Education Minister and giving up politics Monday. Your decision makes the Quebec government just a little bit less corrupt, and, perhaps, just a little bit less incompetent. Best of luck to your replacement, Michelle Courchesne, herself a former Quebec Education Minister, from 2007 to 2010. And to ...

From Orangutan: Dear Line "The Godfather" Beauchamp,

Well, isn’t it ironic that while you have stated that you won’t sit at the same table with the student organization La CLASSE because the latter supposedly does not respect the values of your Quebec Liberal government, you did, in fact, sit at a table of 15 to 20 people, which included Domenico Arcuri, a ...

From Orangutan: To Line Beauchamp,

What if La CLASSE were a Jewish group, or a Hindu group, or a Buddhist group, or a Muslim group, or in other words, a group whose beliefs you don’t follow, but a group that nonetheless plays an important role in Quebec society? Would you still refuse to negotiate? In Quebec, we accept each other’s ...

From Orangutan: Bonjour Jean Charest,

You sure did blow off some smoke and pull out some mirrors Monday when you denounced the Coalition large de l’association pour une solidarite syndicale etudiante (CLASSE) for refusing to condemn the vandalism and social disruptions in Montreal. Last I checked, violence is not part of the CLASSE’s mandate, obviously. In fact, it was on ...

From Orangutan: Bonjour Line Beauchamp,

Yet again, you continue to make strange political decisions. First, on Sunday afternoon, you gave media outlets less than an hour’s notice of a press conference that you wanted to hold. Next, at the press conference, you proposed to meet with certain, but not all, Quebec student federations. And then, you said you would meet ...

From Orangutan: Dear Line Beauchamp,

Why would you offer a proposal to Quebec students that would place them in further debt, and then claim that you knew the students would reject the proposal? Is that not a waste of time, especially when one considers that the student boycott is costing taxpayers $104,000 an hour (or $17 million a week) in ...

From Orangutan: Dear Line Beauchamp and Jean Charest,

Why do you both insist that Quebec tuition fees must increase to keep the quality of education at expected standards? This premise is simply incorrect. My readings, for example, have taught me that although the price of attending a post-secondary institution in the United States has risen over the past few decades, the quality of ...

From Orangutan: Dear Line Beauchamp,

Doesn’t it bother you, as a woman who is the Quebec Minister of Education, that given that women still do not earn the same salaries as men, raising tuition fees means that women will pay more for their education now and in the decades it takes them to pay back their debt? Ms. Beauchamp, raising ...
