Among the arguments:former provincial justice minister Martin Cauchon looks at the evolution of the Constitution and argues that Quebec should sign it law professor Jean Leclair refutes the claim that nationality is exclusive, urging Quebecers to consider themselves Quebecers and Canadian UNESCO ambassador Marie Bernard-Meunier critiques the existing Canadian federal structure and makes a case for an elected Senate and a commitment to unity.
