During this past week the Quebec government made two announcements:  2000 hospital beds are being closed to save money;  plans are beginning to build a concert hall near Place des Arts to cost $105 million.  Do two projects of this nature make any sense in humane terms?

    The following is not entirely ipso
    facto. 105 million dollars is more or less a one time expenditure with staffing and repairs paid out of ticket revenues. Cost of attending to 2000 beds is about twice as expensive, but it’s annually. The problem, is that the patients who couldn’t get to the cancelled beds, have died. Ergo, what goes around comes around. Anyone for a drink.
