Quebec independence: Should the province of Quebec secede from Canada?

  • It doesn't have the potential - yet.

    Quebec is likely the most corrupted province in Canada. The services are badly managed. It fails to show the rest of the country that it is autonomous. Also, it lacks entrepreneurs and engineers who can make the province more economically independent. However, its potential is enormous - it has its own culture, its small industries, its natural resources and its talent. Its educational system should be revised.

  • Quebec has many french Canadians that deserve to be recognized.

    Quebec deserves to leave because the french Canadians deserve to have their own language taught in schools and spoken fluently among the citizens. The french Canadians often feel like they are second class or unliked by Canada as a whole; which is unfortunately true in some places. Also, Quebec deserves a second chance to accept the french.

  • The Anglo culture discriminates against Quebec

    For centuries, ever since the seven years war, Quebecers have had their language, culture, and identity suppressed by the Anglophones of Canada. It was just around 50 years ago, when Quebec stood up for herself and threatened to leave until she was able to freely express herself from Anglo Canada. Unfortunately, they have still been suppressed, and I think it's time that they secede and be fully able to have a government that actually speaks their language.

  • As long as we keep the Saint Lawrence

    Also along with keeping our trade way they can leave i have no tolerance for thier hypocritical and corrupt politics . Also if they leave they take the debt that they cost us . They aren't sustainable by themselves so I want them to leave and come back begging to be part of Canada again that will teach them for being seperatist i mean come on think how nice we were we treat you as equals let you have your own language . That's alot better than alot of other conquered nations got . So I say yes because then they might learn thier lesson

  • Why Shouldn't Quebec Recede?

    Canada would be noticeably weaker without Quebec. This is because Quebec is one of the most economically strong provinces in Canada. It would be a punch in the face to loose Quebec. Canada would also loose a massive chunk of people, most of whom are in fact, French speaking. People who live in Quebec but want to stay would have to move out of the province, and give up every aspect of their old life, even including family. Don't leave Quebec!

  • The Economy Would Be Destroyed

    Canada would lose so much of it's landmass, and a fair amount of money. Not to mention all the natural resources they would lose as well. I mean Quebec is part of the Canadian Shield, where most of it's natural resources are. It would just be a bad thing for all parties involved. It is also a very special part of Canada that should stay in the country.

  • Quebec should stay!!!:)

    Quebec should stay with the great country of Canada. Quebec is important to Canada, it wont be good for the economy if Quebec leaves. And transportation and education will of course have to change. Books and street will have to be in all French because they don't want an English influence on their culture!! Stat WITH ME

  • Quebec should not leave

    Quebec should not leave Canada because it would end up with an unstable and weak economy, as well as a corrupted government. Its population would also have fallen down, due to the people who voted 'no' to secession moving out and to non-Roman-Catholic-French people leaving as well. It would also lose money because tourists would think that only Roman Catholic French people are allowed and would not go to Quebec. Quebec would also have a hard time making trade relations and allies. Also, if Quebec seceded, would it use Canadian money or create its own? And would the Quebec money be worth more or less? And without the government funding (Quebec gets $4-8 billion from Canada a year) wouldn't Quebec's economy collapse, causing even more people to move out? And Quebec would also have to go to the trouble of electing a President, or a Parliament, or whatever it decides on. Another problem would be that it would have to create new passports and documents for new Quebec citizens. And what happens to people who live on the edges of Quebec and commute into Ontario for work? What will they do? Quebec should not leave Canada because of all the potential problems that will befall its economy and government.

  • Quebec rely on the federal government

    Quebec has become an important part in Canadian society. Quebec is not only an important nation in Canada, also it plays a significant role in the domestic economy and development. Besides, Quebec do depend on the federal government. For example, the federal support is a big source of funds to hold its social welfare system.

  • The Quebec independence movement is misguided

    Quebec within Canada is heavily economically supported, more open-minded, and has constitutional protections for its minority groups. A hypothetical republic of Quebec could easily veer into economic stagnation, becoming a close-minded society with even more rigid laws targeting its minorities. Short of a massive change of heart in the independence movement, separation from Canada would likely be a political and cultural leap backwards into irrelevance.

  • Right of Conquest.

    The British Empire defeated the French in the French and Indian War. They took over Canada, and made English the predominant language. Later, in the 1830's the Patriote Rebellion was crushed, and they Quebecois were unable to kick the British out. Quebec was conquered fair and square, and now Canada is a proud, united, commonwealth nation. We can't let them French Canadians secede now.

  • Vital Part of Canadian Culture

    Quebec, though it has several differences from the rest of Canada, is a vital part of the country's culture and commerce. How will Quebec defend itself if there is an invasion? Will Quebec flounder due to less tax revenue coming in from Ottawa? Separating from Canada sounds good in theory, but the logistics of such a move are immense.

  • No Quebec should stay.

    Quebec is a very unique and wonderful part of Canada. Although they are unique in many regards they are a benefit to Canada. They shouldn't secede from Canada because this could hurt Canada in many ways. Montreal is one of the biggest cities in Canada and provides lots of resources and money.
