In October ’95, under the control of the Quebec Liberal Party, the NO campaign avoided all mention of the key arguments against secession. Liberals never talked about the unconstitutional nature of the PQ’s proposals, avoided all mention of why 50% + 1 in a Quebec-only referendum is no basis on which to break up the country, and never once said that if Canada is divisible, so is Quebec.

Staying Canadian documents the long journey provincial Equality Party leader Keith Henderson undertook in 1993 to help get the Quebec nationalist threat to Canada’s territorial integrity before the Supreme Court and onto the national agenda.
