He hee - ask Quebec....!

It's a Confederation

It's complicated - but Quebec figures that if they hold a referendum on
seperation/soverignty and have a majority in favour, it will be possible for
them to find a way to separate from Canada.

It's been a little while since the last referendum (which the separatists
lost - barely) and all the technicalities were gone through endlessly in the
media at the time. I think it can be done with 7 out of 10 Provinces and the
Federal Government agreeing - or something like that.

I think as a last resort they figure they can also have a Unilateral
Declaration of Independence.
