Mr. Speaker, that does not mean rewriting history. That is not what happened.
In a letter addressed to the people elected to this House and those appointed to the other house, the minister wrote “... it is difficult to maintain a strong, homogeneous national identity”, which is why it is important to promote so-called national symbols, such as the Crown of Canada. Yet this comes from a government that supposedly recognizes the Quebec nation.
Does the minister realize that by promoting homogeneous national unity, he is denying the very existence of the Quebec nation?
