- PQ = Parti Québécois = the provincial (Québec) political party that has a platform dedicated to the separation of Québec from Canada.
- BQ = Bloc Québécois = the federal (Canadian) political party that has a platform dedicated to the separation of Québec from Canada (but currently has seats only from the province of Québec).

- QC = Province of Québec. One of the ten Canadian provinces.
- Sovereignty = Nationalism = Separation of Québec from Canada
- Many Francophone Québécois think these terms are different. Québécois are very confused about these terms. That is why the federal government had to introduce the "Clarity Bill" requiring any future Québec referenda to have clear and honest wording that will not confuse the voters.
- Québec is not a nation. Québec is a province inside the country of Canada. Canada is a nation.

- OQLF = Office québécois de la langue française
- = the separatist party's (PQ's) Language Police Department
- The OQLF's racist agenda is to eliminate other languages (especially English) in Québec, to reduce or eliminate the number of "maudits anglos" in Québec, and stamp out the social scourge the PQ (=separatists) call "rampant bilingualism" (PQ Premier of Québec, Pauline Marois) or Parti Québécois culture minister Louise Beaudoin

- Joke du jour: “If there is a government which has respected its minorities, which has respected people’s freedom of religion, it’s ours in Quebec and the government of the PQ in particular.” P. Marois
- P.Marois is clearly delusional and out of touch with reality.
- Justin Trudeau drew a parallel between Québec’s proposed "charter of values" and old segregation policies in the United
- Marois made a campaign promise to promote her racist agenda. Nobody wanted this promise, not the people, not even her party. Bill 14 is a potential disaster that only Marois wants to promote. Instead of accepting that she failed in this ill-advised attempt to quash English, she is now proposing a new bill on "values" ("charter of values") that will attack other minorities in Quebec. Very sad!!

- The Law, Society and Justice Student Association and the Dawson Student Union have invited the Chair of the Quebec Human Rights Commission, Mr. Jacques Fremont, to speak on the proposed Quebec Charter of Values next Friday, Nov. 1, at 14:30 in 5B16. Mr. Fremont has recently raised human rights concerns about the proposed Charter. He has agreed to come to Dawson College to discuss those concerns with students and the College community.

- Question - Why does the PQ (Parti Québécois; the provincial separatist party) state that it is in favour of "Setting clear rules for everyone" when defining and restricting the cultural rights for outsiders (foreigners; those who are not real Québécois de vieille souche; not Québécois "pur laine"), but the PQ is not in favour (QC Bill 99) of defining a clear separation referendum question (Clarity Act) when it comes to deciding the future of Canada, and Québec within Canada?
- Jaggi Singh, an organizer of protests against the PQ values charter, came to the remote site and entered the press room to tell reporters the charter stokes “xenophobia,” targeting people who wear the Islamic hijab, Jewish kippa or turbans worn for religious reasons.

- PQ would bar immigrants, francophones from English college - KEVIN DOUGHERTY - The Gazette - Sunday, June 05, 2005
- Newcomers would be required to send children to French-language CEGEPs.
- Delegates to a weekend convention of the Parti Quebecois adopted a resolution to compel the children of immigrants, now streamed into French primary and secondary schools, into French CEGEPs as well.
- And they also adopted a proposal to gradually reduce funding to Quebec's three English-language universities, McGill, Concordia, and Bishop's.
- Yves Michaud said "97.5 per cent" of students in English CEGEPs and universities would vote No in a sovereignty referendum. The idea behind streaming newcomers into French CEGEPs is to make it easier to recruit them to the PQ cause. "If they go to the French CEGEP, we have a better chance that they will vote Yes in the referendum."
- A PQ government would create Quebec citizenship, set up a Quebec supreme court and pass laws as if it were a country already.
- Jacques Parizeau (former PQ leader)
- "Parizeau actually writes of proclaiming the new republic 'in the hours or days' that followed a Yes victory. Yet here again, we should scarcely be astonished. Parizeau had always known that secession could never be negotiated; he must equally have known that a unilateral break, if it were to have any chance of succeeding, would have to be effected with lightning speed: a 'first strike' that would, he hoped, make it a fait accompli by morning... has confirmed the truth of his famous remark before the event: that Quebecers, having voted Yes to 'partnership' with the rest of Canada, would be trapped like lobsters in the separatist pot."

- UDI = unilateral declaration of independence
- Kelly McParland: Once again, Thomas Mulcair puts Quebec ahead of Canada | National Post - 2013-11-19
- The NDP has taken the position that a vote of 50%-plus-one would be enough for Quebec to seek separation from Canada, a controversial view that conflicts with the (SCC's = Supreme Court of Canada's) view that a far bigger majority would be necessary to legitimize an independence vote.
The NDP and Thomas Mulcair want to repeal the Clarity Act. (The NDP's "Sherbrooke Declaration".)
Mr. Trudeau responded in an interview on the weekend, accusing the NDP leader of playing a dangerous game in "pandering to soft nationalists and separatists in Quebec." He accused Mr. Mulcair of risking another wrenching constitutional debate for partisan gain, hoping to shore up NDP support in Quebec.
The more Mr. Mulcair sidles up to the separatists, the less attractive he looks to English Canadians. Dangling the prospect of an easy departure may go over well in Quebec, but there's no surer way to alienate voters in the rest of the country.
After the near-death experience of the 1995 referendum, the Supreme Court ruled that a "clear majority" would be required on a clearly-worded question to set off any future talks on separation.
NDP has pledged that, if it gains power, it will repeal the Clarity Act and replace it with a "unity act" making it much easier for separatists to have their way.
And what about 50% - 1? Seems to me that we have our answer twice over. How many times you going to beat that poor horse?
The SCC also ruled there is no legal or constitutional route for Quebec to declare independence and a UDI (Unilateral Declaration of Independence) would violate Canadian and International law.
