    Is the ideology opposed to a series of things, the second of which is "proponent of Quebec independence"? Or is an -ism now to be considered an anthropomorphic proponent of Quebec independence? The rest of the sentence is similarly confusing. I would fix it as a simple run-on sentence (or a series of run-on sentences) if I knew what its intent was.

    The New Democratic Party of Quebec is a federalist and social-democratic provincial political party in Quebec, Canada. The party is a revival of the comparable Nouveau Parti Démocratique du Québec, which existed in various forms as the federal New Democratic Party (NDP)'s provincial affiliate in Quebec from 1963 to 1991. The current party, however, is not affiliated with the federal NDP. The modern party was registered on 30 January 2014.

    Federalism is a mixed or compound mode of government that combines a general government with regional governments in a single political system. Its distinctive feature, first embodied in the Constitution of the United States of 1789, is a relationship of parity between the two levels of government established. It can thus be defined as a form of government in which powers are divided between two levels of government of equal status. Federalism differs from confederalism, in which the general lev

    In prac­tice, "sep­a­ratist" and "sov­er­eignist" are terms used to de­scribe in­di­vid­u­als want­ing the province of Que­bec to sep­a­rate from Canada to be­come a coun­try of its own; sup­port­ers of the move­ment gen­er­ally pre­fer the lat­ter term. The term "in­de­pen­den­tist" is pre­ferred by some sup­port­ers. Also in prac­tice, the term "Fed­er­al­ist" was used to de­fine peo­ple who stood with and agreed with con­fed­er­a­tion in other words agree­ing that Que­bec should not be an in­de­pen­dent coun­try.

    Jus­ti­fi­ca­tions for Que­bec's sov­er­eignty are his­tor­i­cally na­tion­al­is­tic in char­ac­ter, claim­ing the unique cul­ture and French-speak­ing ma­jor­ity (78% of the provin­cial pop­u­la­tion) are threat­ened with as­sim­i­la­tion by ei­ther the rest of Canada or, as in Met­ro­pol­i­tan France, by An­glo­phone cul­ture more gen­er­ally, and that the best way to pre­serve lan­guage, iden­tity and cul­ture is via the cre­ation of an in­de­pen­dent po­lit­i­cal entity.Other dis­tin­guish­ing fac­tors, such as re­li­gious dif­fer­ences (given the Catholic ma­jor­ity in Que­bec), are also used to jus­tify ei­ther sep­a­ra­tion or na­tion­al­ist so­cial poli­cies ad­vo­cated by the Parti Québécois. The his­tor­i­cal jus­ti­fi­ca­tion is that Que­bec should be in­de­pen­dent by virtue of New France hav­ing been con­quered by the British in 1763 and sub­se­quently re­lin­quished to the British in ex­change for Guade­loupe.

    Background

    Ten­sion be­tween the fran­coph­one, Catholic pop­u­la­tion of Que­bec and the largely an­glo­phone, Protes­tant pop­u­la­tion of the rest of Canada has been a cen­tral theme of Cana­dian his­tory, shap­ing the early ter­ri­to­r­ial and cul­tural di­vi­sions of the coun­try that per­sist to this day. Sup­port­ers of sov­er­eignty for Que­bec be­lieve that the cur­rent re­la­tion­ship be­tween Que­bec and the rest of Canada does not re­flect Que­bec's best so­cial, po­lit­i­cal and eco­nomic d...

    Contemporary politics

    Per­haps the most sig­nif­i­cant basis of sup­port for Que­bec's sov­er­eignty move­ment lies in more re­cent po­lit­i­cal events. For prac­ti­cal pur­poses, many po­lit­i­cal pun­dits use the po­lit­i­cal ca­reer and ef­forts of René Lévesque as a marker for the be­gin­nings of what is now con­sid­ered the con­tem­po­rary move­ment, al­though more broadly ac­cepted con­sen­sus ap­pears on the con­tem­po­rary move­ment find­ing its ori­gins in a pe­riod called the Quiet Rev­o­lu­tion. René Lé...

    Legal and constitutional issues

    It has been ar­gued by Je­remy Web­ber and Robert An­drew Young that, as the of­fice is the core of au­thor­ity in the province, the se­ces­sion of Que­bec from Con­fed­er­a­tion would first re­quire the abo­li­tion or trans­for­ma­tion of the post of Lieu­tenant Gov­er­nor of Que­bec; such an amend­ment to the con­sti­tu­tion of Canada could not be achieved with­out, ac­cord­ing to Sec­tion 41 of the Con­sti­tu­tion Act, 1982, the ap­proval of the fed­eral par­lia­ment and all other provin­c...

    In a se­ries of let­ters through­out the 1990s, Stéphane Dion(the fed­eral In­ter­gov­ern­men­tal Af­fairs Min­is­ter at the time) laid out an ar­gu­ment against sov­er­eignty. It has also been ar­gued by promi­nent Que­be­cers (sov­er­eignists and ex-sov­er­eignists, in­clud­ing for­mer Que­bec pre­mier Lu­cien Bouchard) that sov­er­eignty pol­i­tics has dis­tracted Que­be­cers from the real eco­nomic prob­lems of Que­bec, and that sov­er­eignty by it­self can­not solve those prob­lems. In 2005 they pub­lished their po­si­tion state­ment, "Pour un Québec lu­cide", ("For a lucid Que­bec") which de­tails the prob­lems fac­ing Quebec. Many fed­er­al­ists op­pose the Que­bec sov­er­eignty move­ment for eco­nomic and po­lit­i­cal rea­sons but many also op­pose sov­er­eignty on other grounds. For ex­am­ple, since the 1995 ref­er­en­dum, in re­gards to the de­c­la­ra­tion of Jacques Parizeau who blamed the loss on "money and eth­nic votes", many fed­er­al­ists con­sid­ered the sov­er­eign...

    The his­tory of the re­la­tions be­tween French and British de­scen­dants in Canada has been marked by pe­ri­odic ten­sion. After col­o­niz­ing Canada from 1608 on­ward, France lost it to Great Britain at the con­clu­sion of the Seven Years' War in 1763, in which France ceded con­trol of New France (ex­cept for the two small is­lands of Saint Pierre and Miquelon) to Great Britain, which re­turned some of France's West In­dian is­lands, in the Treaty of Paris. Under British rule, French Cana­di­ans strug­gled to main­tain their cul­ture, no­tably out­side of Que­bec (where they be­came a mi­nor­ity) but within the province as well, as much of the province's econ­omy was dom­i­nated by British set­tlers. The cause of Québécois na­tion­al­ism, which waxed and waned over two cen­turies, gained promi­nence from the 1960s on­ward.

    Precursor ideas and events

    Sov­er­eign­tism and sov­er­eignty are terms that refer to the mod­ern move­ment in favour of the po­lit­i­cal in­de­pen­dence of Que­bec. How­ever, the roots of Que­bec's de­sire for self-de­ter­mi­na­tion can be traced back as far as the Pa­tri­otes Re­bel­lion, the Al­liance Lau­ren­ti­enne of 1957, the writ­ings of Li­onel Groulx in the 1920s, the Fran­coeur Mo­tion of 1917, and Honoré Mercier's flir­ta­tion with this idea (es­pe­cially in his his­toric speech of 1893).

    Emergence

    The Quiet Rev­o­lu­tion in Que­bec brought wide­spread change in the 1960s. Among other changes, sup­port for Que­bec in­de­pen­dence began to form and grow in some cir­cles. The first or­ga­ni­za­tion ded­i­cated to the in­de­pen­dence of Que­bec was the Al­liance Lau­ren­ti­enne, founded by Ray­mond Bar­beauon Jan­u­ary 25, 1957. On Sep­tem­ber 10, 1960, the Rassem­ble­ment pour l'indépen­dance na­tionale (RIN) was founded, with Pierre Bour­gault quickly be­com­ing its leader. On Au­gust 9...

    The early years of the Parti Québécois

    Jacques Parizeau joined the party on Sep­tem­ber 19, 1969, and Jérôme Proulx of the Union Na­tionalejoined on No­vem­ber 11 of the same year. In the 1970 provin­cial elec­tion, the PQ won its first seven seats in the Na­tional As­sem­bly. René Lévesque was de­feated in Mont-Royal by the Lib­eral André Marc­hand.

    Modernization

    "Sov­er­eignty-As­so­ci­a­tion" is nowa­days more often re­ferred to sim­ply as "sov­er­eignty". How­ever, in the 1995 Que­bec ref­er­en­dum, in which the sov­er­eignty op­tion was nar­rowly re­jected, the no­tion of some form of eco­nomic as­so­ci­a­tion with the rest of Canada was still en­vis­aged (con­tin­u­ing use of the Cana­dian dol­lar and mil­i­tary, for ex­am­ple) and was re­ferred to as "Sov­er­eignty-Part­ner­ship" (French: sou­ve­rai­neté-par­te­na­riat). It re­mains a part of th...

Right and Left must be in­ter­preted within the provin­cial con­text; Lib­eral Party pol­i­tics gen­er­ally co­in­cide with those of other lib­eral par­ties, while PQ pol­i­tics are more so­cial de­mo­c­ra­tic in...

    Rest of Canada

    The other nine provinces of Canada have gen­er­ally been op­posed to Que­bec sov­er­eignty. Aside from mar­ginal move­ments, the only major se­ces­sion­ist move­ment in Eng­lish Canada has been the Mar­itimes Anti-Con­fed­er­a­tion move­mentim­me­di­ately after Con­fed­er­a­tion oc­curred. In gen­eral, fran­coph­o­nes out­side Que­bec op­pose sov­er­eignty or any form of na­tional recog­ni­tion for Que­bec, while non-fran­coph­o­nes, par­tic­u­larly the an­glo­phone mi­nor­ity in Mon­treal, a...

    France

    In France, al­though open­ness and sup­port is found on both sides of the po­lit­i­cal spec­trum, the French po­lit­i­cal right has tra­di­tion­ally been warmer to sov­er­eignists (like Pres­i­dent Charles de Gaulle, who shouted his sup­port of in­de­pen­dence in Mon­treal in 1967) than the French left (like for­mer Pres­i­dent François Mit­ter­rand[citation needed]).

    The terms 'federalism' and 'confederalism' both have a root in the Latin word foedus, meaning "treaty, pact or covenant." Their common meaning until the late eighteenth century was a simple league or inter-governmental relationship among sovereign states based upon a treaty. They were therefore initially synonyms. It was in this sense that James Madison in Federalist 39 had referred to the new US Constitution as 'neither a national nor a federal Constitution, but a composition of both' (i.e. neither constituting a single large unitary state nor a league/confederation among several small states, but a hybrid of the two). In the course of the nineteenth century the meaning of federalism would come to shift, strengthening to refer uniquely to the novel compound political form established, while the meaning of confederalism would remain at a league of states.Thus, this article relates to the modern usage of the word 'federalism'. Modern federalism is a system based upon democratic rules...

    In Europe, "Federalist" is sometimes used to describe those who favor a common federal government, with distributed power at regional, national and supranational levels. Most European federalists want this development to continue within the European Union.[citation needed] European federalism originated in post-war Europe; one of the more important initiatives was Winston Churchill's speech in Zürichin 1946. In the United States, federalism originally referred to belief in a stronger central government. When the U.S. Constitution was being drafted, the Federalist Party supported a stronger central government, while "Anti-Federalists" wanted a weaker central government. This is very different from the modern usage of "federalism" in Europe and the United States. The distinction stems from the fact that "federalism" is situated in the middle of the political spectrum between a confederacy and a unitary state. The U.S. Constitution was written as a reaction to the Articles of Confedera...

    Australia

    On the 1st of January 1901 the nation-state of Australia officially came into existence as a federation. The Australian continent was colonised by the United Kingdom in 1788, which subsequently established six, eventually self-governing, colonies there. In the 1890s the governments of these colonies all held referendums on becoming the unified, self-governing "Commonwealth of Australia" within the British Empire. When all the colonies voted in favour of federation, the Federation of Australia...

    Brazil

    In Brazil, the fall of the monarchy in 1889 by a military coup d'état led to the rise of the presidential system, headed by Deodoro da Fonseca. Aided by well-known jurist Ruy Barbosa, Fonseca established federalism in Brazil by decree, but this system of government would be confirmed by every Brazilian constitution since 1891, although some of them would distort some of the federalist principles. The 1937 federal government had the authority to appoint State Governors (called intervenors) at...

    Canada

    In Canada the system of federalism is described by the division of powers between the federal parliament and the country's provincial governments. Under the Constitution Act (previously known as the British North America Act) of 1867, specific powers of legislation are allotted. Section 91 of the constitution gives rise to federal authority for legislation, whereas section 92 gives rise to provincial powers. For matters not directly dealt with in the constitution, the federal government retai...

    Anarchists are against the State but are not against political organization or "governance"—so long as it is self-governance utilizing direct democracy. The mode of political organization preferred by anarchists, in general, is federalism or confederalism. However, the anarchist definition of federalism tends to differ from the definition of federalism assumed by pro-state political scientists. The following is a brief description of federalism from section I.5 of An Anarchist FAQ: 1. "The social and political structure of anarchy is similar to that of the economic structure, i.e., it is based on a voluntary federation of decentralized, directly democratic policy-making bodies. These are the neighborhood and community assemblies and their confederations. In these grassroots political units, the concept of "self-management" becomes that of "self-government", a form of municipal organisation in which people take back control of their living places from the bureaucratic state and the c...

    Federalism also finds expression in ecclesiology (the doctrine of the church). For example, presbyterian church governance resembles parliamentary republicanism (a form of political federalism) to a large extent. In Presbyterian denominations, the local church is ruled by elected elders, some of which are ministerial. Each church then sends representatives or commissioners to presbyteries and further to a general assembly. Each greater level of assembly has ruling authority over its constituent members. In this governmental structure, each component has some level of sovereignty over itself. As in political federalism, in presbyterian ecclesiology there is shared sovereignty. Other ecclesiologies also have significant representational and federalistic components, including the more anarchic congregational ecclesiology, and even in more hierarchical episcopal ecclesiology. Some Christians argue that the earliest source of political federalism (or federalism in human institutions; in...

    Division of powers

    In a federation, the division of power between federal and regional governments is usually outlined in the constitution. Almost every country allows some degree of regional self-government, in federations the right to self-government of the component states is constitutionally entrenched. Component states often also possess their own constitutions which they may amend as they see fit, although in the event of conflict the federal constitution usually takes precedence. In almost all federation...

    Bicameralism

    The structures of most federal governments incorporate mechanisms to protect the rights of component states. One method, known as 'intrastate federalism', is to directly represent the governments of component states in federal political institutions. Where a federation has a bicameral legislature the upper house is often used to represent the component states while the lower house represents the people of the nation as a whole. A federal upper house may be based on a special scheme of apporti...

    Intergovernmental relations

    In Canada, the provincial governments represent regional interests and negotiate directly with the central government. A First Ministers conference of the prime minister and the provincial premiers is the de factohighest political forum in the land, although it is not mentioned in the constitution.

    The meaning of federalism, as a political movement, and of what constitutes a 'federalist', varies with country and historical context.[citation needed] Movements associated with the establishment or development of federations can exhibit either centralising or decentralising trends.[citation needed]For example, at the time those nations were being established, factions known as "federalists" in the United States and Australia advocated the formation of strong central government. Similarly, in European Union politics, federalists mostly seek greater EU integration. In contrast, in Spain and in post-war Germany, federal movements have sought decentralisation: the transfer of power from central authorities to local units. In Canada, where Quebec separatism has been a political force for several decades, the "federalist" impulse aims to keep Quebec inside Canada.

    Federalism, and other forms of territorial autonomy, is generally seen as a useful way to structure political systems in order to prevent violence among different groups within countries because it allows certain groups to legislate at the subnational level. Some scholars have suggested, however, that federalism can divide countries and result in state collapse because it creates proto-states.Still others have shown that federalism is only divisive when it lacks mechanisms that encourage political parties to compete across regional boundaries.

    In this blog, I will therefore trace the origins of Québécois nationalism as well as elaborate upon its two different and distinct forms- the inward (la survivance) and outward (Quiet Revolution) nationalisms- to argue that its emergence was rooted in the Anglo-French tensionsaround different views espoused by English- and French-speaking Canadians on what constitutes Canadian Confederation. This blog will also address the ways the federal government of Canada tried to respond to Québec’s separatist demands. I will explain that the various mega- constitutional reforms, such as official bilingualism, the Meech Lake and Charlottetown Accords, which were implemented before 1995 and inspired by Pierre Trudeau’s centralist views, only widened the gap between the French- and English- Canadians. This has stimulated the Government to search for a different strategy, which now involved the non-constitutional reforms, such as asymmetric federalism and decentralized ‘open federalism’, which ev...

    The country created by the 1867 British North America (BNA) Actwas “less a new nation than an irregular and multiform assemblage that granted some recognition and autonomy to preexisting nations.” However, different understandings of BNA Act’s interpretation of what constitutes Canadian Confederationbecame main sources of tensions between English- and French-Canadians. 1. The formerpromoted the idea of a united Canadian nation and viewed the Francophones’ beliefs of Quebec’s distinctiveness as an existential threat to Canada. 2. For the latter, on the other hand, the new federation had dualistor binational foundations and was “an arrangement that acknowledged the existence of a self-governing capacity of their own nation.” Since the federal system’s members are obliged to maintain different loyalties, besides a national, they also have a regional identity as well as a sociological sense of belonging to their communities. These factors influence different perceptions among Canadians...

    The widespread historical mistreatment of the French language and culture by the Anglophones turned French-Canadians inward and forced them to adopt the nationalism of ‘survival’ (la survivance) as a self-protecting measure. The ideology of la survivanceportrayed Quebec as being dominated by English Canada through its involvement in various political and economic institutions of Quebec which, in turn, infringed upon and discriminated against the French language and culture. This ideology was promoted by the Roman Catholic Churchwhich served as an object of collective allegiance and preached against the involvement in the ‘evil’ capitalist economy and politics and in favor of serving the God by retaining the humble farmer’s lifestyle. Therefore, dominated by the corrupt and patronage-run Union Nationale under Maurice Duplessis (1936-39, 1944- 60), the economically poor and alienated Quebec ignored Ottawa by solely focusing on its own provincial developments and by avoiding careers in...

    The Quiet Revolution“transferred national devotion from the church to the state of Quebec.” After the death of Duplessis in 1959 many of the functions previously administered by the Church and English business elites, such as education and economic development, were taken over by the newly elected Liberal government of Jean Lesage (1960-66). This period marked the dramatic change in the values and behavior of Quebecers, thus transforming the province’s stance from the isolationist nationalism to an outward and vibrant nationalism.

    The bitter experiences during the previous two decades revealed that Canadians were only further divided along the national lines over the innovative ideas of their leaders. For instance, per Donald Ipperciel, Trudeau’s federalist solution to the ‘Quebec question’ was to create the Charter patriotism, or the universalism of constitutional principles, to serve “as a shield against national particularisms.”His vision of a united pan-Canadian Charter of Rights represented “the commonness of all Canadians, regardless of the diversity composing the country”and portrayed the Canadian purpose to be attached to a collective entity that spreads beyond the nation. Trudeau believed that by guaranteeing the individual rights it was possible to undermine the separatists’ collective rights appeal. However, Trudeau failed to understand that while “Charter patriotism is addressed to the inalienable rights of individuals, nationalism is concerned with individuals’ participation in collective decisio...

    After 2000, however, there was no need to invoke any formal constitutional negotiations on Quebec sovereignty since the separatist aspirations have significantly waned. There are three important explanations behind the curtailment of Quebec’s separatist activities: 1. The first one has to do with the social movements that shifted their focus away from Quebec’s sovereignty to social justice aimed at addressing poverty and wealth redistribution, since Quebec’s domestic economy has deteriorated due to the earlier provincial governments’ focus on the welfare state’s cuts which subsequently weakened the unions. 1.1. Moreover, on a related sociological note, the Quebec youth of 2000s became largely depoliticized and stopped identifying with the sovereignty project. 1. The second explanation behind the curtailment of separatism is the neoliberal direction taken by the federal government. The neoliberal state has facilitated co-operation between both levels of government, which, in turn, ha...

    Quebec’s political future is, however, riddled with uncertainties. As of today, there are some fears about the potential reawakening of the dormant Québécois secessionist movement. In fact, it seems like the Government of Canada has now substantial reasons for being concerned about the future destiny of Quebec within the Canadian borders: during the October 2019 election the Bloc Québécois(the largest nationalist party that advocates for Quebec’s separation from Canada) has won 32 seats, making it the third largest party in the House of Commons. However, if we analyze the issue on a more deeper level, it can be seen that the BQ’s success was not due to its separatist goals. Instead, the party succeeded precisely because they put this goal on the back burner, since “Quebec’s secession is supported by [only] about 30 percent of Quebecers.” Similarly, for the first time in four decades, the sovereignty issue was also sidelined during the 2018 provincialelections in Quebec. Such surpris...
