Pro

Quebec has been recognized as a distinct society within Canada, with its own unique culture, politics, infrastructure, language, and history. Every couple of year's the question of Quebec's independence arises within Canadian politics usually do to civil unrest or tension between Quebecois and Canadians. When Quebec is economically stable and ready for independence the Canadian government should encourage and accept the sovereignty of a Quebec state as well as form a stable and strong economic bond to continue the success of our intertwining economies.

I don't see why the French whore-capital of Canada needs sovereignty. It needs all the help it can get.
Debate Round No. 1
Slothisticated

Pro

The economic situation in Quebec is favourable. In terms of income per capita Quebec is less indebted than other countries. Quebec's economic performance is surprising and they're doing pretty well. Right now Quebec is just a province without control over all their means. Without letting Quebec take control of its own economy Canada will suffer by losing $18 billion (1) dollars annually due to a recent $5 billion (1) increase in federal support to a province who doesn't even wan't to be a part of Canada

Pro

Canada consists of two separate nations There are a number of definitions of "nation," but its basic essence refers to people who are in effective control of a territory in which they form a majority, and have unifying characteristics, such as language, culture, and tradition. Given this, under the UN Charter, Qu"bec has the right to national self-determination, which includes the right to independence.

You plagiarized the round 2 from here: http://decurions25.rssing.com...
And your round 3 from here: http://canadiandimension.com...

Quebec is a trashy place and I am the only one who made my own arguments.

Reasons for voting decision: in a debate you present arguments, even if they are half-hearted or troll-arguments. I don't care. In my opinion no arguments = all points to pro.

Reasons for voting decision: My vote is not confirmation bias, nor is it out of displeasure for con's attitude. Pro didn't insult like con did. Com didn't put a period in his second round argument, nor did he argue in any round. He simply stated his unfavorable position. Pro's sources seemed valid to me. His final round seemed to be a summary, not an argument
