Québécois Who Live in the Québécois Territory

Somebody should tell these people that the motion recognizing the Québécois as a nation within a united Canada, is just a motion and does not mean anything.

Also, while you're at it, tell these politicians that the motion recognizing the Québécois as a nation within a united Canada, is just a motion and does not mean anything.

There is no confusion. None. Zero. So, there is no need to keep talking about it.

As Lawrence Cannon very clearly put it, "It's an inclusive definition that takes in all of the Québécois who live in the Québécois territory."

Feel better? I know I do.

A judge in a court of law must look to credible sources for the meaning of words. When looking for the meaning of "nation", say, within the constitution or the meaning of "National Assembly", the plain meaning is now defined by parliament. Someone will make the arguement that it means a sovereign jurisdiction within another jurisdiction. i.e. all internal powers have now be devolved to Quebec.

I warned you guys that Harper wants to bulkanize and Americanize the counry... you were warned. Harper wins and Canada lost.

... all that needed to be added was "historic nation" and we would have been fine... but that ain't so now.

I can't believe you "smart" (special)people are so stupid and argue over the meaning of the word nation which is self evident.While saying that a motion voted on and passed by the house of commons "means nothing" is absolutly assinine and even dangerous quite frankly.
I'm sorry but as far as I know Quebecois was not defined to include those who reside only in the province of Quebec.
You are very Progressive but not very Right.
You smell like you must be Brian Mulroney's old underwear, somebody call the the Chinese and Italians ("foreigners") this queen needs his laundry checked.

"As far as I know".

Thanks for proving my point.
