January 2009 Book Club Selection - Fighting For Canada, Diane Francis

With Parliament set to resume in only a few weeks time and the pro-coalition crowd still trying to push the coalition forward, it's more important now more than ever that Canadians understand what happens when Canadian politicians take Quebec Separatists lightly.

Fighting for Canada is a book that is regarded as entirely unwelcome by those who would most blatantly appease the separatists. This is because the book exposed the struggle preceding, during and following the 1995 sovereignty referendum for precisely what it was: a near-cataclysmic intersection of manipulation by the Parti and Bloc Quebecois and complacency of the federalist forces in Quebec.

Fighting for Canada is a book that will remind many Canadians -- those who remain wary of the dangers that Quebec separatism continue to pose to Canada -- of the folly of giving Quebec separatists too long a leash, or of allowing them to get too close.
