OTTAWA - Prime Minister Stephen Harper surprised the House of Commons today by announcing his party wants to recognize Quebec as nation within a united Canada.
Harper said the party is putting forward a motion to recognize Quebec’s nationhood within Canada in order to supersede a Bloc Quebecois motion that he says would virtually be a vote for separation from the rest of Canada.
"If we recognize Quebecers as a nation, we have to vote ‘yes’ in a referendum on separation," Harper said in the House of Commons following Question Period.
