Ms. Campbell spoke at a luncheon at the Johns Hopkins School for Advanced International Studies on the future of Canadian unity and independence movements. She discussed the movement and negotiations for the sovereignty of Quebec. In her remarks, Ms. Campbell, Canada’s Minister of Justice, pointed out that Canada was the U.S.' largest trading partner, and thus events in Canadian politics should concern the United States. She said Canada might be bound to undergo an “identity crisis” every few years, and these self-examinations and comparisons with other countries may have negative repercussions on reform movements in Canada. She said the independence movements in Canada does not mean fundamental weaknesses in the political structure, but rather a healthy vibrancy that exists in all countries to some degree. close
