It is difficult to imagine a Canada without Quebec or a Quebec without Canada. Yet on 30 October 1995, Canadians from coast to coast were watching national television coverage of “separation night” in Canada. Canadians anxiously viewed the referendum tallies as they came in from across the province of Quebec. By evening’s end, Canada was held together by the slimmest of margins.

With these questions in mind, this resource offers primary documents that will help the reader to gain a better understanding of the long and complex relationship between Canada’s two founding cultures.
