The Equality Problem in Quebec and Canada

Quebec Studies (1997), 24, (1), 46–54.

Abstract

Ce texte examine le rapport entre quatre types d'égalité politique au coeur du débat constitutionnel canadien: l'égalité des peuples fondateurs, l'égalité des citoyens, l'égalité des provinces, et l'égalité des clivages. Le gouvernement québécois s'est consacré à l'égalité des deux nations au sein du Canada, tandis que la population hors Québec rejette cette égalité en faveur de trois autres options. Les égalités "anglo-canadiennes" ne se contredisent pas substantiellement, mais les trois sont incompatibles aves l'égalité des peuples. Nous basant sur les écrits de Charles Taylor et Philip Resnick, nous étudions les possibles compromis entre les quatre égalités, basés sur une redéfinition du "Canada hors Québec."
