This is exactly the point though: a) the Quebecois have the right to
self-determination, yes or no. However, this right cannot and should not be
infringed upon by external forces: i.e. the federal government, the Reform
the NDP, or, even worse so-called "Marxists" who apologize for imperialism...
But the second point is b) the breakup of the Canadian state _does_ in many
respects represent a step forward for Quebecois. I will not advise Quebecois
vote "oui" but I will say that I support my comrades in Quebec who _are_
campaigning for a yes vote based on anti-imperialist principles.
