QB: Province considers tax increase for health care

A recent report on health care in Quebec suggests the province increase its sales tax by one percent. From 7.5% to 8.%.

This year, the Quebec Health Department received 43% of the provincial budget with expenses totalling $20.9 billion. Reports indicate that within 20 years the healt care budget will eat up 70% of the budget.

Just like any other jurisdiction, Quebec thinks through more money at the problem is the solution.
