Mr. Speaker, first, it is not a bill on a referendum. It is a bill to set a framework whereby the Government of Canada must negotiate if the process is clear and must not negotiate if it is not clear.
Second, this bill follows up on the supreme court opinion, which uses the word secession, which is the legal term to describe the act of separating from a country to create a new one.
To my knowledge, the first point on the Parti Quebecois' agenda provides that Quebec would become a state and would be represented at the United Nations as an independent state. If this is not the case, then the Bloc Quebecois should tell us.
