Proposal 1 : Do away with the Generations Fund and use this money to pay down the provincial debt.

Do away with the Generations Fund and use this money to pay down the provincial debt.

This Fund was created in the hope of achieving an annual yield of at least 6.3%. This yield has not been achieved by the Caisse de dépôt and it is unlikely that this target will ever be reached. It is therefore preferable to reduce the debt directly and thus eliminate the costs of administering the fund.

Proposal 59 : Create a certification for freelance accountants.

Create a certification for freelance accountants.

At present, when a freelance accountant has done work for a company and failed to send the government the appropriate sales taxes and deductions from his/her income, the Department of Revenue may prosecute the company for non-payment and force it into bankruptcy. From now on, such accountants will have to obtain certification from the Department of Revenue for the management of money owed to the Department of Revenue.

Proposal 58 : Create a 911 WEB and a cyber-crime squad under the responsibility of the Sureté du Québec.

Create a 911 WEB and a cyber-crime squad under the responsibility of the Sureté du Québec.

Through this site, the public could voluntarily and anonymously denounce or report the following types of electronic crimes: Cyber-pedophilia, electronic fraud, identity theft, Internet-based hate propaganda, fishing, spam, malware, etc.

People would be allowed, and even encouraged, to submit evidence, such as e-mail, pictures, links to sites, etc.

Proposal 57 : Make it easier for police to deal with people who are mentally ill and potentially dangerous.

Make it easier for police to deal with people who are mentally ill and potentially dangerous.

The aim is to prevent tragedies that result from a patient unjustifiably discontinuing his or her medication or from a sudden turn for the worse in his or her condition. Currently, police officers cannot act until a crime has been committed or until a request for action from the immediate family has been made.

Proposal 55 : Rigorously enforce the highway safety code among all users.

Rigorously enforce the highway safety code among all users.

Currently, too many bicyclists and pedestrians, as well as some drivers, break the laws without being stopped by the police. This phenomenon leads to animosity among highway users and is detrimental to highway safety.
