Three Fault Lines CH1 p.27-28
Three axes around which can politics has evolved
The first rift b/w Eng-French speaking communities
- 1759- French defeat on plains of Abraham by gen. Wolfes British forces
- French were a majority prior to this, large subjugated majority
- by 1856 they became a majority and wanted representation
- by 1976 discourse in Quebec shifted from subjugation to sovereignty
- 1980 and 1995 two referenda were held regarding Quebecs independence
second is fault line American Canadian relations
- Canada and the US had a different relationship then, Americans had a revolution to the
colonials, Canada and French remain loyal to the crown
- defending protecting Canadian culture & American domination of the American economy,
foreign policy and defense policy
- the threat to French Canada is not from the US its from English Canada
- Canadian know they are not American!
third is regionalism
- is a product of the vastness and diversity of Canada
- the economies and histories of the regions are very different
- provincial gov. have promoted regionalism and provincial identities
