Could Canada still function efficiently as a world superpower in military and politics if the proponents of Quebec separatism successfully persuaded Quebec to secede from the rest of Canada?

  • Canada is not reliant on Quebec.

    While Quebec is important for the economical structure of Canada, they are not exclusively necessary. The rest of the country is still able to make money, and support a military. A similar situation would be if the state of New York seperated from the Union. Yes, it would be difficult to react to the loss of income and citizens. There would also be border control issues and a host of other things. However, New York is not the only place to make money in the US.

  • Yes, I still think that Canada can function just as well today even without Quebec.

    Even if Quebec were secede from the rest of Canada, I still think the nation of Canada will function just as well after as they did before. I do not think, however, that Canada is or will ever be a super power in term of presence on the international stage or militarily.

  • Separatism is a lose-lose situation.

    Nope. Canada is one nation from sea to shining sea. The advantages that Quebec has as part of that federation are too valuable for them to give up at this point. Many of the issues that led to talk of separation in the first place have been resolved. No one would gain from secession.

  • Quebec is a large part of Canada.

    Quebec is the second largest populated providence in Canada. Quebec plays a large part in politics which includes a lot of influence in the military. Without the citizens of Quebec in their military, Canada would lose a large portion of their military. Losing Quebec would be very harmful to the safety of Canada as a whole.

  • Economically Canada would be weaker

    Separating Canada down the middle would create an economic nightmare for the nation. Never mind the lost tax revenues and economic activity that takes place in Quebec - just consider the land east of the province of Quebec that no logner has a physical tie to the rest of the country. Long-term Canada might recover, but in the short-term the country would have to step back from its place in international affairs and sort out its own house, which might take more than a couple of generations.
