Abstract: This paper traces the history of French-English conflict in Quebec from the British conquest of New France in 1795 to the present. The long-lasting cultural and economic deprivation ofthe French resulted in a movementfor change with the development ofan urban intellectual-managerial class, and a growing sense of ethnic pride. This is intensified by the fear that the French language and culture will be overwhelmed by the predominantly English-speaking surrounding Community. Thepeaceful transference of economic power and language dominance from the English- to the Frenchspeaking Community was facilitated by the electoral power of the French Community. Of growing concern is the greater need for English-language proficiency in the French-speaking Community as Quebec industry enters the international marketplace.
TL;DR: The current political crisis in Canada has its roots in the 1982 Constitution Act of Canada as mentioned in this paper, which removed Quebec's status to only one of ten voices in the Canadian federation, making Quebecois culture and values distinct from that of the rest of Canada.
Abstract: In its Preliminary Report the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism stated that "Canada, without being fully conscious of the fact, is passing through the greatest crisis in its history" (Canada 1965). Ahnost 30 years later most observers agree that Canada is still in the midst of a political crisis that may well be decisive for the survival of the country äs we know it today. While the present constitutional dilemma still has to do with Quebec's place within the Canadian Föderation, the difference today is that anglophones äs much äs francophones are now aware of the seriousness of the crisis though the two solitudes remain äs divided äs ever on the measures needed to resolve the impasse. Canada's linguistic duality remains at the heart of the current political crisis. Quebec is Canada's only French-majority province whose Quebecois culture and values make it a society distinct from that of Anglo-Canada. After a decade of constitutional negotiations, the Canadian Premier, Pierre E. Trudeau, patriated the British North America Act of 1867 (BNA Act), which had created the federal Dominion of Canada äs a colony of the United Kingdom. The Constitution Act of 1982 incorporated the BNA Act äs well äs its amendments, thus providing Canada with a renewed constitution (Hogg 1985). The 1982 Constitution Act was endorsed by the nine anglophone provinces but not by Quebec, whose government refused to sign the agreement but was nevertheless subject to its provisions (Gall 1990). Until then, Canada's federal System was built on the notion of two founding peoples, one English, the other French, with French Quebec enjoying a traditional veto power on constitutional changes (Woehrling 1993). However, the 1982 Constitution Act demanded unanimous agreement by all provinces to enforce some constitutional changes, thus reducing Quebec's Status to only one of ten voices in the federation. Furthermore, the 1982 Constitution Act included a bill of rights, entitled the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which enshrined individual rights at the expense of collective rights including those of francophones and aboriginals requesting special protections äs
