Deconfederation: Canada Without Quebec
In this timely, clear-thinking and candid disussion of the history and present prospects of Canada as a nation, the authors maintain that the Canadian experiment has failed, that it is time to say good-bye and bonne chance! to the province of Quebec. Bercuson and Cooper argue that the valiant attempt to accomodate the special aspirations of one large French-speaking province has put an intolerable strain on Canada. Now, as regions fight one another and the federal government for increased powers, as the economey grinds to its lowest point in decades, and as our poiticians suffer from the lowest confidence ratings ever recorded, the country can no longer afford the luxury of futile constitutional wrangles. It is time to bring the debate to an end. Quebec separation, the authors say, would have a number of positive effects: - a substantial reduction in unemployment insurance payments, because Quebec receives far more than it contributes to UI; -the end of the need for bilingual prime ministers; -the end of official bilingualism with enormous savings to tax payers and manufacturers; -the recovery by Canada of the northern half of Quebec which the province acquired purely because of its role within Confederation. Deconfederation makes a compelling case for a sovereign Quebec. It offers a clear alternative to Canadians who fear for the future and dispels once and for all the idea that Canada without Quebec will be substantially weakened.
