It takes about 18 years to make a draft eligible player, so one summer does not make 18 years.
If Quebecers were so wealthy, their net worth would be higher, which I proved it is not.
It's been better than Ontario's for a few years now (unemployment rate), just not a "summer thing" anymore. Québec has simply been much less affected by the recession.
What you 'proved' is that the Québécois have less money left to spend after taxes are deducted from income. What you disregarded were the things paid by this extra tax and the lower cost of living. I'm saying the measure wasn't a good one to then insinuate Québec families have less money for sports and other hobbies.
