Hanging Together: Canada After Patriation

The imminent British Parliament bill that will become the constitution of Canada. Canadians' misunderstanding of what the constitution will mean. Clearing up some misconceptions. The beginning of a new era for Canada. The isolation of Quebec, again. The need to continue efforts to keep Quebec as an integral part of Canada, and why we should. The speaker's conviction that separation by Quebec would just be the beginning of separation by several provinces, with an explanation of why. Canada's diversity, and the need to preserve it. Defensive reasons for preserving that diversity. The commitment by the Parti Québécois for independence for Quebec. The problem of semantics. An examination of the issue surrounding Quebec independence. The importance of what Ontario does in this regard. Getting the message out. A challenge of attitudes, understanding and commitment by individuals as well as governments.
