Mr. Speaker, over 600 federalist residents of the Outaouais met last night in the small town of Low to reiterate their deep attachment to Quebec and Canada.
Many such rallies have been held across Canada since the October 30 referendum. Citizens from all over the country are mobilizing to help resolve the constitutional crisis fuelled by Quebec separatists.
All these groups are sending a clear message. They want a united Canada and fervently hope that Quebec will remain part of it.
I commend the initiative taken by all these people seeking peaceful, unifying solutions and I can assure them that my government will do all it can to meet their legitimate expectations.
