-William Johnson, renowned writer and journalist, published in The National Post on Saturday, May 16, 2015 a very precise analysis of the challenge for Pierre Karl Péladeau in achieving its proposed separation of Quebec from Canada.
There are only two options to separate Quebec from Canada: political and legal negotiation or armed revolution (like in Cuba).
Obviously, the second option will never be put forward by Quebecers…
In the separation by negotiation, there are four stages from first the local referendum; compliance with laws in force in the current country of Canada; the agreement of the other provinces to amend the Constitution; and most difficult, from a geographical point of view, to accept that some regions (territories) of Quebec will not join the new country and will remain in Canada like First Nations people and their territories that occupy half the geographical area of Quebec.
