$0.00


Fourteen of Quebec's leading thinkers dare to reimagine their province and its role within the Canadian federation.

Reconquering Canada is a breath of fresh air in the ongoing debate over Quebec's status within Canada. Fourteen leading Quebec personalities - politicians, militants, intellectuals, federalists all - invite Quebecers and other Canadians to embrace a new vision that affirms Quebec's autonomy and includes it in building a strong, federal Canada. Among the arguments:

  • former provincial justice minister Martin Cauchon looks at the evolution of the Constitution and argues that Quebec should sign it
  • law professor Jean Leclair refutes the claim that nationality is exclusive, urging Quebecers to consider themselves Quebecers and Canadian
  • UNESCO ambassador Marie Bernard-Meunier critiques the existing Canadian federal structure and makes a case for an elected Senate and a commitment to unity.
