Very simple question, in my mind.
Where do we, as a federal political party, stand on the issue of Quebec? We've had kind of a conflicted nature on this subject since Trudeau, when his staunch federalism rubbed against those willing to give Quebec more power and more respect for its nationalism, like John Turner. This traveled down the into the Chretien-Martin feuds, and I suspect a little bit into the Dion and Ignatieff eras - though the question of the party surviving was more on the minds of people then.
And now, given that it looks like we'll likely have a seperatist government in Quebec next election, one more than willing to go to a referendum, Liberals will really have to decide which side of the fence we're on. Both times during the other referendums we were under federalist Liberal governments (Trudeau and Chretien) - is it time we went with the rest of the group, namely the Conservatives and New Democrats, who say that giving in to more nationalist demands is the right course? Or do we rekindle our federalist roots and offer ourselves as the only party willing to be federalists in Quebec?
