It's an old idea from the 19th century. It is something that is not relavant to the vibrant, extraordinary, culture that is Quebec as Quebec is an amazing part of Canada. Nationalism is based on a smallness of thought that closes in, that builds up barriers between people, and has nothing to do with the Canada we should be building. It stands against everything my father ever believed.

Justin Trudeau

New Canada must be workable without Quebec, but it must be open and attractive enough to include a New Quebec.

During the election, Prime Minister Harper ended some of his speeches with the words “God bless Canada.” Indeed, the prophet Isaiah says that God blesses you when you “share your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house” (Isaiah 58.7). We urge the Prime Minister to spend tax dollars now in a way that will bring the homeless poor into their own house, and allow them the dignity of sharing their bread with others.

Andrew Hutchison

Canada has a Prime Minister who thinks that the United States is not only our ally, but also our model.

Stephane Dion
