Quebec, distinct society, Canada, Newfoundland, New Brunswick
The idea behind the consideration of Quebec as a distinct state was brought up back in 1995 on the 27th of November when the then Prime Minister Jean Chretien expressed his desire to introduce to the House of Commons a motion which if adopted would mean that Quebec was to stand as a distinct state in Canada. This was something which the Prime Minister wished to do in an effort to accomplish the given expectations he had set as part of the last phase before the referendum campaigns of 1995. There is so much as happened since the time of the division of the province of Quebec which was very much the source of most of the reasons behind the calls for consideration of Quebec province as a distinct society (Dunn, 18).
[...] Quebec is not the only distinct society in Canada at the sub national Level? There is also Newfoundland and New Brunswick Multicultural society It is not only in Quebec where there are multicultural systems of life because the other provinces also do have the same as well. This means that the consideration of Quebec as a unique or rather distinct society based on this may be as some put it farfetched. This however did not last for so long as with time there were squabbles mostly fighting that resulted to tensions in the colony between the French and the English. [...]
[...] Consequently this has also over the years had very significant impact on the administrative and political alignment and developments. The section 94 of the Quebec law also recognized Quebec as a distinct entity and this is highlighted by some clauses such as the one that recognizes the uniformity in terms of civil and property rights of all the provinces of Canada with an exception of Quebec. This is a clear pointer to the monotony enjoyed by the province of Quebec as special and unique entity. [...]
[...] Much to do with the identification and isolation of Quebec as a distinct entity came up back in the 1760 during the British conquest. The thing that happened was that this was a French colony initially and when the British took over they wanted to manage the colony with the minimal possible changes. This saw the introduction of the Royal Proclamation of 1763 which was meant to govern the new settlers mostly the English while at the same time there was the retention of the French civil law that was supposed to oversee the governance of the inhabitants who spoke French (Yale & Durand, 243) Unique laws unique to every province.

[...] Therefore rather than separate the different systems as is the case in the Quebec provinces some of the provinces have married the systems so as to create an integrated system which serves the purpose. The other provinces also share the different races and people from both the French and the British. All these developed saw to it that the Quebec had a unique and distinct form of management. This is something that led to a very elaborate and clear distinction such that the management units of Quebec stood out as distinct and unique. The other provinces also share an almost similar approach to administration. [...]
[...] The privileges enjoyed by this province as a result were not only numerous but also special something that came with the status they enjoyed. This is also something that other people have reservations about due to the fact that they feel the other provinces are being ignored. There are also the reservists who feel that this idea to recognize this distinctiveness may be something that is farfetched since it is something that has been there for the longest time. Proponents of this argument justify their line of thinking by saying that the Quebec constitution has already recognized that the nation is unique and distinct and therefore this does not warrant any more.
