Relations between Canada and Quebec have never been easy. Beginningwith the Conquest and working through the many political permutationsbefore Confederation and since, there has always been conflict betweenthe two governments and, in particular, between two points of view. Therebellions of 1837-8, conscription, the Quiet Revolution, languagelaws, the FLQ crisis and endless constitutional wrangles such as MeechLake are just a sampling of the issues that have divided the nation.The cast of characters has been fascinating, too: Pierre Trudeau, BrianMulroney, Robert Bourassa, and Rene Levesque have all played centrestage. In the wake of a razor-thin majority for federalist forces inthe referendum of 1995, the issue of separation continues to becomplicated by the division of the huge national debt, the possibilityof further territorial partition within a separate Quebec, the rightsof First Nations people, and the spectre of separatist movements inEastern Europe in recent years.
