The Ferrandez solution to the passport crisis

The activists are still funny bugs…

Everything brings her back to her cause.

You show Mr. and Mrs. Everybody a donut and they see… a donut.

On the other hand, when you show an intersectional anti-racist activist a donut, he sees a clear manifestation of the threat that overconsumption, neoliberalism and the ubiquity of sugar corporations in Third World countries pose to the racialized underprivileged classes.


Take what happens in passport offices.

For most people, the chaos that reigns in the passport offices is a testament to the federal government’s inability to make our institutions work.

But for the former mayor of the plateau Luc Ferrandez, who cares about the environment, it is first and foremost an ecological scandal.

Here is what Mr. Ferrandez wrote on his Twitter account on June 22nd:

“I will displease everyone. Right. That’s what I do best: the number of air travelers is a clear indication that the CO2 tax is not high enough. By doubling it, we will solve the problem of pollution and passport issuance. »

For Luc Ferrandez, the problem isn’t that hundreds of Quebecers have to stay overnight or drive to New Brunswick to get their passports.

It’s because too many people want to travel!

The carbon tax should be doubled (which would lead to a significant increase in the price of airline tickets) to discourage people from travelling!

Thus there would be less pollution.

And the passport offices would be less busy!

It’s not nice, is it?

This is the Ferrandez solution!

Raise airline ticket prices to ensure only the rich can travel!

Long live the left!


No, but what an idea, the democratization of travel!

It was a nice time when only the elite could go to Europe, Africa or Asia, wasn’t it, Mr. Ferrandez?

There were fewer planes in the sky.

And the air was cleaner!

And then, let’s face it, when we walked the beaches of the Dominican Republic or Cuba, it was something else!

We didn’t meet Quebecers in shorts and flip flops, no!

It was great!

Challenging !

We were among cultured people!

We didn’t dance the Macarena with a drink in the hand !

We talked about exploitation! Capitalism! International solidarity!

We have not slept in air-conditioned hotels!

We wanted to go home!

In his hut!

Ah, those were good times!

Unfortunately everyone is traveling now!

We don’t know who we’ll meet when we go to the pool!

There is Gerhard! Ginettes! Sylvies!

Hey, we should double the price of cars too! Only wealthy people could pollute the environment this way!

Since they only make up 1% of the planet, we would breathe better!

Let’s roll the rich!
