Quebec and the West

Quebec Studies (1997), 24, (1), 34–45.

Abstract

Bien que le degré de désaccord entre le Québec et l'Ouest canadien soit souvent exagéré, une question fondamentale, pourtant, les met en opposition: celle de la dualité. Cette notion de la coexistence au Canada de deux peuples linguistiquement et culturellement distincts est à la base de l'opposition entre le Québec et l'Ouest au sujet du débat constitutionnel canadien. Le Québec considère le Canada comme un pays habité par deux nations, tandis que pour l'Ouest le Canada est un pays caractérisé par une diversité culturelle, ainsi qu'une égalité individuelle et provinciale. Est-il donc possible d'envisager une réconciliation entre ces deux visions qui paraissent pourtant incompatibles?
