New PQ program includes calls for more powers from Ottawa

by

Under a PQ government, Quebec will get more. So says the party’s newly released action plan for sovereignty, which has as its goal to continuously wrestle control from the federal government—with full compensation—until the party deems it proper to call another referendum to separate outright from Canada. Under the plan, the broad strokes of which were defined by PQ leader Pauline Marois last June, the party would adopt a Quebec constitution and citizenship, as well as a charter defining Quebec as a secular state. It would also modify Bill 101 to apply to businesses with less than 50 employees, which isn’t currently the case.
