Questions arising from quote

The statement A re-elected Conservative government would lead a Canada that was "strong, united and free, with a Quebec (that was) autonomous and proud," (1) attributed to Prime Minister Harper raises two questions.

What decision making powers would be those of an "autonomous" Quebec under "A re-elected Conservative government" and which would remain those of a "strong and united" Canada? Would all provinces be "autonomous" and have these same powers or just Quebec?



These questions must be answered with absolute clarity by the Prime Minister before the election is called so that Canadians are aware of the directions that would be taken by a re-elected Conservative government.
