Different history
ancestry Overall opinion.... Canada doesn't want Québec to separate than the rest of Canada No more need to learn French Will not be a bilingual country QUEBEC WAS HERE FIRST Lose part of our history is in debt Québec The Cree will separate from Québec Desire for sovereignty SEPARATION! Feels unsatisfied Unhappy Desire for sovereignty Independence Recognition as a nation The Through the lenses: Understanding the tension: Peace and prosperity: No, I don't think there is an option so that both sides are happy creating an accord may be the only other choice, but previous ones failed Québécois want to be a separate country, Canadians want to keep everybody together = only one group can be truly happy Peace and prosperity not necessarily the goal, more like having a place to belong in and to preserve their culture. It doesn't have much to do with peace because they are trying to preserve their culture, their main goal is not to become rich though peace and prosperity may follow. Problem: Canada (a sovereign country) wants to stay united with Quebec The Québécois believe that they are losing their culture and wants to separate from Canada Conclusion: The Québécois who are a nation, are trying to gain a sovereign country, and will not be satisfied with just self-determination Nation Feels like the Québécois are pushing us away/doesn't like us We are all Canadian citizens A lot of money returned from Québec's debt will go back to Canada's economy Québec is the most in debt province (approximately 254 billion) We will no longer have to worry about the Québécois complaining about how we treat them (if separate) If separate, our freedom is further restricted since we have to consider them when making laws Maritime provinces will be split form the rest of Canada if Québec separates Canadian: We are looking at this problem through the "lens" of sovereignty since we are a sovereign country and our main concerns are what will happen to Canada as a country when/if Québec separates.
