Mr. Bertrand begins with a statement of his new philosophy since his resignation from the Parti Quebecois in February of 1985. Canada, learning to live together. An observation that problems in Ontario are similar to those in Quebec. The speaker's pride in Canada. The danger to Canada from attacks by secessionists. Citizens protecting their country. The next referendum. The strategies of the PQ. The three-step opposition to that plan. Quebec's plan to get Canada out of Quebec. PQ accomplices in the Liberal Party and Mr. Charest from the Conservative Party. Changing our mentality. Our will to live together. Our quality of life and how we can keep it going.
