It all started when Quebec tried to leave in 1980. This sparked the conversation for a renewal in the constitution.
I ask you all here tonight to vote no on leaving Canada.
The Liberal party wanted to reform to the constitution since 1920. Now they have a chance but I wanted to use this chance and give everyone equal rights.
I agree and I also want some sort of charter that grants every Canadians rights and freedoms
We want to reform the constitution.
After a lot of debate in the house of commons, all of the premiers gathered in Ottowa.
I've called you all here today so we can discuss the terms and agreements of the new constitution.
Unfortunately, not all provinces agree with our ideas. 8 of the provinces even got together and formed a group called the "Big 8". Leveque led this group and revealed our negotiation plans.
We know what you up to Trudeau and it's not going to work!
Eventually, after tough negotiation, we managed to reach an agreement. However, Leveque was still not satisfied.
I don't care what you say, I'm still not satisfied and I will never be satisfied unless Quebec gets some sort of special treatment!
One night, attorney generals Chrétien, Roy Romanow and Roy McMurtry got together and formed a notwithstanding clause known as the Kitchen Accord. We then got all of the premiers together except for Leveque to sign the accord.
