Submission to Joint Committee of the House of Commons and the Senate of Canada on a Renewed Canada Submitted by Quebec Federation of Home & School Associations
The mandate of Quebec's Commission on the Constitution was to canvas public opinion around the province, and subsequently to make proposals to the National Assembly for a new constitutional agreement. Premier Robert Bourassa excluded from the options the status quo and annexation to the United States. Quebec Federation of Home & School Associations (OFHSA) would also exclude the model 'national' Sovereignty/Association, i.e., one where there is a common currency and free trade between the provinces but, in sensitive areas where jurisdiction is shared by the federal and provincial governments, such as immigration, manpower, education, communications and the environment, Quebec acquires exclusive political control by a transfer of jurisdictions from the federal level. Such transfers relieve the Federal Government of its constitutional protective obligations in regard to individuals and minorities in Quebec without compensating protection at the provincial level that enables such individuals and minorities to continue to develop and flourish.
