Characteristics any solution must incorporate


The subtitle of this book is How to achieve Quebec independence. You claim to have designed a special referendum formula that will achieve Quebec independence, one which will result in Anglophones having their own province in an independent Quebec. What is that formula?

Before we go into the meat of the issue, I want to outline the elements that I believe any solution must incorporate --and the ones it must avoid -- in order for the formula to work.

O.K., shoot.

Let's start with the essential characteristics that any solution must incorporate for success.

The solution must have, as its primary goal, the restoration and guarantee -- without the possibility of override by the majority -- of full individual and minority rights for the non-francophone community of Quebec.

The solution must be based upon reasonable, legal and moral premises.
