La menace de partition du Québec est de retour

En politique, une partition consiste en l’établissement de frontières à l’intérieur d’un territoire (État, communauté, etc.) jusque là considéré comme une unité. (source)

.

Nous avons déjà subi une partition en 1791 alors que la Province du Québec, qui couvrait alors le Labrador, la moitié sud du Québec actuel ainsi que tout le bassin des Grands-Lacs en Ontario, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, etc. fut divisée pour former les Haut-Canada et Bas-Canada qui devinrent plus tard les provinces d’Ontario (couvrant seulement le coté nord des Grands-Lacs) et du Québec.

La possibilité d’une nouvelle amputation d’une partie du territoire Québécois est revenue sur la scène politique à l’époque où, suite à la courte et douteuse victoire du NON au référendum de 1995, Lucien Bouchard était premier ministre du Québec et où ‘appui à notre souveraineté se maintenait à des niveaux majoritaires :

Charest - partition
Cette menace disparue avec l’accession de John James Charest au poste de premier ministre du Québec en 2003 qui fit disparaître la possibilté immédiate de souveraineté de notre peuple.

En 2014, l’arrivée de Pierre-Karl Péladeau sur la scène politique Québécoise suscite un engouement important chez les souverainistes Québécois  ce qui ravive la peur chez ceux qui voudraient nous garder soumis. On ressort donc la menace de partition :

The New Montreal

The New Montreal Province

Sous couvert d’égalité, le projet The New Montreal Province est en fait le rejet radical du Québec et des Québécois :

no one really cares about anyways

Il suffit de suivre les discussions de ce groupe pour se convaincre que ce sentiment de rejecti est partagé par pratiquement tous les partisans du projet.

.

La partition de Montréal du reste du Québec soulève des réactions et questionnements :

– Premièrement, la menace de partition permet de constater que les fédéralistes n’ont rien de positif à faire valoir pour convaincre les habitants du Québec de rester soumis au reste du pays.  Le « Love in » du 27 octobre 1995 est répudié.

– La partition sans l’accord des autorités et des populations du territoire concerné est un geste inconstitutionel au Canada et illégal sur la scène internationale (Slobodan Milosevic, qui est la dernière personne à avoir tenté la partition d’un territoire, est mort en prison durant son porcès pour Crimes contre l’humanité).  Comment peut-on faire la partition de Montréal sans l’accord d’Ottawa ni celle de Québec ?

– Comment Montréal pourrait-elle se développer économiquement sans électricité, sans apports des banlieues telle que main-d’oeuvre et clientèle et sans apport de la province telle que denrées, matériaux, énergie, etc ?

– Le Québec tronqué de Montréal aurait vite fait d’abandonner le reste du pays pour faire sa souveraineté.   Que deviendra Montréal sans accès aux eaux internationales ?

  1. Canada Libre dit :

    The New Province of Montréal :
    « The only thing that is needed is the consent of the majority of other provinces. »

    Jenny Bagget :
    Wrong. Have you actually read the constitution? I assume not. Let me help you:

    What you describe is the general formula for amendment in the constitution (it is not a majority but 2/3 and also requires 50% of the pop, not just a majority of provinces. 8/10 without Qc and Ont wouldn’t work for instance) :

    Section 38:
    38. (1) An amendment to the Constitution of Canada may be made by proclamation
    issued by the Governor General under the Great Seal of Canada where so authorized
    by
    (a) resolutions of the Senate and House of Commons; and
    (b) resolutions of the legislative assemblies of at least two-thirds of the provinces
    that have, in the aggregate, according to the then latest general census, at least
    fifty per cent of the population of all the provinces.

    But more importantly, it is not the amendment formula that applies in this case.

    Section 43 specifies :

    43. An amendment to the Constitution of Canada in relation to any provision that
    applies to one or more, but not all, provinces, including
    (a) any alteration to boundaries between provinces, and
    (b) any amendment to any provision that relates to the use of the English or the
    French language within a province,
    may be made by proclamation issued by the Governor General under the Great Seal
    of Canada only where so authorized by resolutions of the Senate and House of
    Commons and of the legislative assembly of each province to which the amendment
    applies.

    All this is in Part V of the constitution, which deals with amendment formulas. What’s above is the specific formula to change boundaries and it requires Quebec’s approval.

    But now can we change Part V of the constitution? Can we change section 43? You may wonder what is the amendment formula for the amendment formulas part of the constitution. Well here it is:

    Section 41 enlights us:

    41. An amendment to the Constitution of Canada in relation to the following matters may be made by proclamation issued by the Governor General under the Great Seal of Canada only where authorized by resolutions of the Senate and House of Commons and of the legislative assemblies of each province:

    (e) an amendment to this Part.

    « this Part » meaning Part V. Part V being the procedure for amending the amendment procedures part of the constitution. Part V contains section 43.

    In short. to change section 43 without Quebec’s approval to split the province, you would need to change section 41 first. This would require the authorization of all provinces…. including Quebec, once again. It is thus constitutionally impossible to split Quebec without it’s authorization.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proposal_for_the_Province_of_Montreal

    « Proposal for the Province of Montreal
    The Province of Montreal is a proposal to separate the city of Montreal, its metropolitan region or its English and non-Francophone regions into a separate province from Quebec, becoming the 11th province of Canada. There have been several proposals of this nature from mid-20th century onwards.

    During the French colonial era, a district of Montreal existed in the French Province of Canada. During the 19th century, Americans sometimes referred to the Province of Quebec as the Province of Montreal[citation needed]. The Roman Catholic church also divides Canada up into ecclesiastical provinces, one of which being the Ecclesiastical Province of Montreal.

    During the prelude to the Confederation of Canada in the 1860s, some proposals were made to divide up Lower Canada (the current province of Quebec) into multiple provinces, the one with the most currency being to create the provinces of Montreal, Eastern Townships and Quebec.[1]

    One of the earlier modern proposals for the Province of Montreal dates from the late 1960s, when it was proposed that Mr. Montreal, Mayor Jean Drapeau, having many successes, and having Montreal as the economic engine of the Province of Quebec, become the premier of a new province, due to the way that Montreal tax dollars were spent outside of the region, to little benefit to Montrealers.

    Following the renewed rise of the Quebec sovereignty movement in the 1990s, efforts revived to create a Province of Montreal. Roopnarine Singh of Montreal founded the Movement for the 11th Province of Montreal in this era.[2][3] The era before and after the referendum of 1995 also produced proposals to split the western Ottawa Valley region, the Eastern Townships of Quebec along the US border, and English-speaking parts of Montreal (such as the West Island and Westmount) into a Province of Montreal.[3][4][5] This proposal was made by the « partitionist movement », which demands the right for minorities to secede from Quebec if Quebec secedes from Canada. In the wake of the referendum, prominent lawyer and then-federalist Guy Bertrand led a court fight to allow for the creation of the Province of Montreal if Quebec were to secede.[6][7] West Virginia was used as an example to support the position in public.[8]
