The Morning After (25)

51z7CVY8C3L._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_[1]This is an informative book about the 1995 Quebec Referendum. I remember those days vividly, despite the fact that I was living in Ontario at that time. It was a year with historical overtones that were not seen often in Quebec. And Rene Levesque  and Jacques Chretien will probably always remember that year as a year that almost changed everything for Quebec.

The politicians who fought the battles of the 1995 Quebec referendum have since left the political arena. Some personalities are nearly forgotten; others, like the night of the referendum itself, will live on in the country’s lore, and certainly in my heart because I was a native of Montreal.

But for many Canadians and specifically Quebecers, what they don’t know is what led to October 30, 1995 and what they would have been prepared to do had the vote gone the other way. Those questions were foremost in my mind for many years, until I read this book.  If any of you are interested in this all-important in Canadian and Quebec politics, I urge you to read this book.

I found this book informative and eye-opening. Thank you for such a wonderful book by two Quebecers.
