The involvement of all Canadians in the building and strengthening of national unity. The importance of Canada's credibility as a reliable ally to a soldier. The feeling of Quebeckers. The conflict or "curtain of fog" that has descended between Canada's so-called two solitudes. A discussion or exploration of this issue; an examination of the reasons for it, set in a military-historical perspective. An optimistic belief in the outcome of the referendum in favour of a united Canada.
