One of Quebecers' favourite pass-time is complaining about Quebec. Whether it's about the crazy high tax rate, the insufferable traffic, or the fact that we have among the highest hospital wait times IN THE WORLD, it does seem that we have a lot going against us.
That being said, Quebecers now have a reason to walk with their head a little higher.According to the province's statistics agency, l'Institut de la Statistique du Québec, our economy grew 2.9% compared to the country's 2.3%. Our GDP also increased by 1.1% while Canada's grew 0.9%.
