THE QUÉBEC ECONOMY IN DANGER … 
By Bernard Bujold – 
The acquisition of Jean Coutu is not a good sign for the Québec economy in the long term because if Jean Coutu was controlled by a private family (the Coutu), Métro is a group entirely controlled by its stockholders and may possibly be one day the target of a share buy-back from an outside group.
