The Morning After: The 1995 Quebec Referendum and the Day that Almost Was

Writer notice: Jean Lapierre (with)

A sly, insightful and beautifully unique booklet from one in all Canada's most well liked political analysts, Chantal Hébert, and one in all Quebec's best political broadcasters, Jean Lapierre.

Only the main fearless of political newshounds may dare to open the previous wounds of the 1995 Quebec referendum, a still-murky episode in Canadian historical past that maintains to defy our knowing. The referendum introduced one of many world's so much profitable democracies to the edge of the unknown, and but Quebecers' attitudes towards sovereignty proceed to baffle the country's political type. Interviewing 17 key political leaders from the duelling referendum camps, Hébert and Lapierre start with an easy premise: asking what have been those political leaders' plans if the vote had long past the opposite direction. Even 2 a long time later, their solutions may possibly surprise you. And in asking an unforeseen query, those veteran political observers cleverly reveal the fractures, tensions and fears that proceed to form Canada today.

Stephen Harper

The authoritative biography of Stephen Harper, to be released at the eve of the subsequent election.
As one of many very important top ministers within the lifetime of our state, Stephen Harper has reshaped Canada right into a extra conservative state, a metamorphosis that his competitors tacitly admit is not really reversed. He has made executive smaller, justice more durable, and provinces extra self reliant, whether or not they are looking to be or no longer. lower than its twenty second major minister, Canada exhibits the area a plainer, more durable face. those that compliment Harper aspect to the Conservatives' skillful monetary administration, the remarkable new alternate agreements, the tax cuts and the balanced finances, the reformed immigration procedure, the uncompromising defence of Israel and Ukraine, and the struggle opposed to terrorism. Critics--pointing to punitive punishments, muzzled scientists, attacks at the judiciary, and contempt for parliament--accuse the Harper executive of being autocratic, secretive and cruel.
But what in regards to the guy? during this definitive new biography, the Globe and Mail's John Ibbitson explores the lifetime of crucial Canadian of our times--his suburban adolescence, the hindrance that triggered Stephen Harper to hand over college for 3 years, the forces that formed his tempestuous courting with Reform chief Preston Manning, how Laureen Harper impacts her husband, his devotion to his children--and his cats. Ibbitson explains how this shy, closed, introverted loner united a fractured conservative stream, defeated a Liberal hegemony, and got down to reshape the state. With unheard of entry to resources, years of study and writing, and a intensity of perception that has made him essentially the most revered voices in journalism, John Ibbitson provides an intimate, designated portrait of a guy who has remained an enigma to supporters and enemies alike. Now that enigma is printed, in a masterful exploration of Stephen Harper, the flesh presser and the guy.

Le résultat obtenu est significatif 3 (r2 = 0,618425), c’est-à-dire qu’il existe un lien entre la richesse d’un pays et la taille de ses dépenses d’hospitalisation de court séjour. Par exemple, les États-Unis ont le PIB par habitant le plus élevé (21 574 $) et dépensent le plus par habitant en hospitalisation de court séjour (935 $). Par ailleurs, l’Espagne a le PIB par habitant le moins élevé (12 740 $) et dépense le moins, après le Royaume-Uni, en hospitalisation de court séjour (392 $). De même, il existe un lien entre le PIB d’un pays et la taille de l’ensemble de ses dépenses hospitalières.

Indd 30 03/06/08 11:01:00 Geoffroy Scott – Comparaisons internationales du secteur hospitalier 31 Annexe 2 Méthodologie Une comparaison internationale est un exercice à la fois enrichissant et périlleux – enrichissant, car il permet de situer les pays les uns par rapport aux autres sur divers plans, et périlleux, car il est soumis à plusieurs limites méthodologiques. On entend par « limites méthodologiques » les différences géographiques, démographiques, poli­tiques, culturelles et économiques entre les États, ainsi que la variabilité des défini­tions d’un pays à l’autre.

Donc, les dépenses de santé par habitant augmentent plus rapidement que le PIB par habitant. Dans le second cas, l’élasticité est inférieure à 1. La part du PIB affectée aux dépenses de santé augmente en fonction du PIB par habitant, mais à un rythme décroissant. La courbe a une forme concave, ce qui signifie que les pays dont le PIB est faible augmenteront, si leur PIB augmente, la part du PIB consacrée à la santé dans une plus grande proportion que les pays dont le PIB est plus élevé. Pour analyser l’évolution des dépenses de santé suivant les pays, nous avons re­ présenté dans chaque cas notre droite de régression et l’évolution réelle des dépenses de santé par rapport au PIB pour le Canada et l’un des 12 autres pays (figures 3 à 26).
