Resolution #57: Abolition of Boroughs (Official French version)

Province of Québec has no city large enough to be divided into boroughs. New York has 2 boroughs, Brooklyn and Queens, which are more populated than the entire city of Montreal. Both Chicago and Toronto have about 2.7 million inhabitants, which is 1 million inhabitants more than Montreal, and neither of them are subdivided into boroughs. Furthermore, the more complex and multi-tiered a government bureaucracy is, the more responsibility is diffused, and the more elected officials have others to blame when an administrative problem arises. Finally, all mid-and large-sized Québec cities have more elected officials than similarly-sized cities elsewhere in Canada, and none of the former are better governed than the latter.

That's why a government of the Conservative Party of Québec will abolish boroughs in all Québec cities that have them.
