The Meech Lake Accord


The speaker begins by recalling a stormy debate over the Maple Leaf flag 25 years ago and draws analogies to the current debate over the Meech Lake Accord. Both raise questions about Canada's identity. An event which forces us to consciously accept our differences. Placing the Meech Lake Accord in a political and historical context in order to be well understood. A detailed examination of the Accord and the debate surrounding it. The clause "distinct society" and the controversy surrounding it. Clarifying the debate. The consequences of a failure of Meech Lake. Assurances from the speaker about various improvements if the Accord is ratified. The need now for a collective act of faith in our common future.
