Quebec's artists: Canada IS NOT our country.

Quebec's artists: Canada is NOT our country

The economic and social conservatism which characterizes the canadian Conservative party of Prime minister Harper makes us fear for the future of our nation, writes a collective of Québécois artists (...)
 
The values and visions preached by the CCP do not correspond at all to our idea of an opened, interdependent and plural society.

For Mr Harper, culture is like fat that should be cut off public finances. On the contrary, we believe that it is at the very roots of our society. On top, as in several other issues, it is clear that our ideas of what our society should be are diametrically opposite, not even reconcilable.
In that sense, we believe that it is time to rise and defend what we are. (...) We do not want independence for Québec while being against the Canadian nation. We want it for Québec. We are two different nations with two extremely different realities. It is now time to have two different countries, to finally start to live while being ourselves.

Our people are daring and creative. We are deeply convinced that it will continue, as a country, to make its mark in the international sphere. We have all necessary financial means, policies and laws to make of Québec a strong country.

Today, we invite every Quebecer to take this step at our sides.

The artists were often blamed for not taking enough part in the Québec's constitutional problem (Québec still don't have a Constitution, inside of Canada). This era is over. From now on, we will speak about it, but most important, WE WILL ACT.

And we invite all our souverainists colleagues from the cultural spheres to join in this walk for the country. The time has come. Starting today, we will militate openly and proudly to make Quebec a free and sovereign country.
