Sovereignty’s dead. Again. Three decades after Quebec’s first referendum, it seems the question of whether Quebec should stay or go has lost it’s heart-clenching urgency in the province itself. According to a recent poll, 58 percent of the province believes the issue is settled, with only 14 percent of Quebecers believe the province will be a république in the next 30 years. Tellingly, though, the support for sovereignty hovers at 40 percent–which is sounding more and more like wishful thinking.
