 L'avenir du Québec vu par Daniel Turp
And as far as decentralization is concerned, only a massive real and constitutional transfer of cultural, social, and econornic powers to the Quebec National Assembly will be acceptable to Quebeckers, who are, as shown in poll after poll, including one taken after the October 30 referendum, repeatedly claiming such a transfer.
By contrast with the 1980 referendum question, which would have given no such mandate to the government of Quebec, the vote of October 30 is a clear indication that Quebeckers seriously considered the option of sovereignty and almost gave it a majority in 1995.
By contraste the anglophones of Quebec voted almost unanimously for the No side (95 percent), whereas the allophone population of Quebec also voted overwhelming against the sovereignty proposal (92 percent).
