Abstract

Depuis les années soixante le Canada anglais et le Québec poursuivent des projets de réformes constitutionnels de deux perspectives incompatibles. Le Québec, de son côté, aurait voulu étendre les pouvoirs d'une "société distincte" afin de se procurer plus d'autonomie à tous les égards, tandis que le Canada anglais se donne comme nouveau principe d'identité collective le multiculturalisme et la notion que le Canada contient de nombreuses cultures distinctes qui seront protégées par le gouvernement fédéral. À la base des difficultés constitutionnelles actuelles, il y a un désaccord profond quant à la conception d'une "société distincte" et à sa place au sein de l'état fédéral.
