For the past forty years, Quebec has toyed with the idea of sovereignty. Some citizens strongly agree that Quebec should now be a country. The nationalist movement praises the concept of independence because its members believe Quebec should be a country to promulgate its own laws. Nowadays, there are laws that rally consensus in both, Quebec and Canada, such as the Charter of Rights and Freedom. To a certain degree, we can compare this Quebecois nationalism with the Pakistan nationalist movement. Pakistan also wished to separate from India. Its motivation was based on religious and language issues. Today, Pakistan is now a country and is separated from India, but Quebec is still a province of Canada. In the past, relations between Pakistan and India had been strained by a number of historical and political issues. On the other hand, there are no major conflicts like this between Quebec and Canada that should lead to the independence. The idea of the sovereignty is not against Canada but for Quebec. If Pakistan wanted to be independent for a lot of several reasons, Quebec mostly want political independence.
