Mr. Parizeau spoke at a National Economists Club luncheon on “Quebec, Canada and the U.S.: the Economics of a New Relationship.” Mr. Parizeau supports a plan for the sovereignty of Quebec, where Quebec would have significant political independence while retaining economic ties with Canada. He said public support for the independence of Quebec was growing, and delineated the plan for Quebec’s sovereignty. Under the plan, Quebec would raise its own taxes, provide its own legislature to make its own laws and treaties, and govern its own municipal concerns. Mr. Parizeau expressed his concern that the Quebec and Canadian business community should support the sovereignty of Quebec, and discussed the effect of Quebec’s sovereignty on the U.S.-Canada Free Trade Agreement. close
