Those who are striving so hard for a separate Quebec state are hoping that Canada will treat the ghetto state as an equal partner. If the citizens of Canada want to keep this great country as a federation for all Canadians, they will have to stand firmly against accepting any kind of separate state in their midst. If they flinch, it will feed the extremists' aims.
Except for the most irrational extremists - and there are some very determined types, as those who remember the October Crisis will attest - I expect that most nationalists would not want to live in an isolated ghetto.
And would Canada tolerate having a foreign state splitting the country? A separate army? A separate currency? Show your passport to get from Ontario to New Brunswick. Body screening to cross the Quebec-Ontario border?
The destruction of Canada can only happen if Canada allows it.
