Viewpoint showing that abolishing tuition and related costs for college and university would cost taxpayers over a billion dollars without improving graduation rates
The idea of making higher education “free” in Quebec is hardly new, but recently, some politicians have revived the debate by promising to implement such a policy if elected. While this idea may seem attractive at first glance, it would be costly for Quebec taxpayers, would not necessarily lead to more students graduating, and would also be unfair.

Interview with Alexandre Moreau, Public Policy Analyst at the MEI, about the many taxes and fees that weigh on the Canadian air transport sector.

Economic Note detailing the many taxes and fees that weigh on the Canadian air transport sector, and how reducing this burden would promote its growth
The Canadian air transport sector has experienced significant expansion in recent years. Nonetheless, a multitude of taxes and fees are restricting its potential for growth. Given that favourable conditions are dissipating, especially when it comes to low fuel prices, what can governments do to reduce the fees imposed on transporters, and ultimately on travellers?

Viewpoint showing how the restrictive rules imposed on Quebec maple syrup producers have reduced their global market share
Each new sugaring-off season brings its share of controversies, with stories about seizures of syrup from producers making headlines. The rules that apply to Quebec maple syrup producers are indeed very restrictive, in addition to stimulating the growth of their competitors in neighbouring provinces and U.S. states.

Viewpoint explaining that contrary to popular belief, economic growth is the best way to reduce poverty
Is it true that economic growth only benefits a small, privileged elite? This seems to be the belief of certain groups that regularly denounce a “crisis of inequality” in many countries, including Canada. Yet this perspective, which considers wealth creation to be a zero-sum game in which the poorest are prisoners of their economic circumstances, is simply mistaken.
