The National Question continues to structure Quebec’s political life, and for many citizens, this issue will determine their vote on September 4.

The National Question continues to structure Quebec’s political life, and for many citizens, this issue will determine their vote on September 4.

The Parti Québécois’ base is made up of sovereignists. By announcing that he’ll vote “no” the next time, François Legault hopes to open himself to liberal voters, while Jean Charest raises the specter of a referendum in order to hold onto Anglophone voters.

A new party, Option Nationale, was created to promote sovereignty. And Quebec Solidaire could not escape the obligation to find a place on this political chessboard.

This doesn’t mean that all of these voters are making this question an immediate priority.

Pauline Marois knows it, and for that reason, she isn’t committed to holding the referendum in her next term.

She is committed, however, to hold a wide-ranging consultation to give Quebec its own constitution, in order to affirm the fundamental values of the Nation of Quebec.

Quebec Solidaire and Option Nationale have developed similar proposals.
