The National Will is broken
Canada must end because its federal
government does not defend and uphold the values that constitute its National
Will. A nation cannot and should not continue if such values are not protected.
“…a constitution that does not protect
the inalienable and imprescriptible individual rights of individual
Canadians is not worth the paper it is written on.”
---Rt. Hon. Brian Mulroney
What do you mean by National Will?

which the constitutional, moral, and social fabric of the nation is comprised.
According to Pierre Trudeau, national will is "a nomenclature of values which
bind Canadians together in the sense that they all share certain basic beliefs";
"a body of values to be shared by the Canadian people" which is "more than the

individual rights and freedoms. Other values are our social programs such as
Medicare; official bilingualism, free trade between provinces, and protecting
This is not an exhaustive list. It is subjective and each individual may have
more or less, or even different ones than those listed above, as they constitute
my own personal list. However, there should be a common thread that runs through
all Canadians’ collection of values which should serve to bind us all together.
And you believe the national will is “broken“?
I believe that the values that make up the national will of a fundamental
characteristic of Canada -- French-speaking Canadians centered in Quebec -- are
in conflict with those held by the rest of Canadians.
