It’s Time For Alberta – And Every Other Province – To Unilaterally Amend Canada’s Constitution
When Quebec proposed unilaterally amending the Constitution in Bill 96, many assumed it was simply an aggressive assertion of power, rather than something that would actually take place. But, what Quebec wants, Quebec seems to get. And now, Justin Trudeau has said Quebec can indeed unilaterally amend the constitution.
If Quebec can unilaterally change the constitution, and if Trudeau is willing to give in so quickly, then Alberta and every other province must start doing the same. In fact, every provincial leader must immediately start to propose unilateral amendments; otherwise the question must be asked why they are so much weaker than Quebec's leaders?
