The speaker's concern with recent events in Quebec, and whether, because of what is happening there, Canada is on the threshold of great and nation-shaking transitions. How the rest of the world might be looking at Canada today. How much of the turbulent change of spirit by Canada is really attributable to the English-Canadian businessman (on whom it has become fashionable to lay the blame for today's conditions). Other factors that do not stem from English-speaking Canada. A detailed discussion of the separatist movement in Quebec, from the viewpoint of an English-speaking businessman in Quebec. Time for an honest appraisal. Suggestions for improving the situation.
