The British North America Act (BNA Act) came into force July 1, 1867, creating the Federation of "Canada". At this time (Confederation in 1867) The Parliament of Quebec consisted of One (1) Lieutenant Governor, Twenty-Four (24) Legislative Councillors appointed for LIFE (the Quebec equivalent of The Senate of Canada), and Sixty-Five (65) Members of the Legislative Assembly elected by popular suffrage (voting).
The latter 65 (Sixty-Five) elected Members of the Legislative Assembly came to be known as Members of the National Assembly (MNAs) in 1968, and this bureaucracy has GROWN steadily since Confedeation in 1867 to now contain the EXCESSIVE amount of 125 (One-Hundred Twenty-Five) MNAs, (Members of the National Assembly) !!! This in an age where parliamentarians no longer travel by horse, and therefore no longer require days, or even weeks to reach their constituents from Parliament.
In the modern world, where telephones... computers... trains... planes... automobiles... and the modern media can INSTANTANEOUSLY transmit information, we need less government to do an even better job, not more !
We need to downsize (actually RIGHTSIZE !) the National Assembly by amalgamating every three (3) Provincial Ridings into one (1) riding. This "Rationalization of Resources" through riding "consolidation" would help eliminate waste, duplication, and excess costs by reducing the number of Members of the National Assembly (MNAs) from an EXCESSIVE 125 (One-Hundred Twenty-Five !) members presently, to the optimally RIGHTSIZED number of 42 (forty-two) MNAs / seats in the National Assembly of Quebec. (Savings to the Quebec Taxpayer : approximately ONE (1) BILLION Dollars !)
