Lengthy article by George Isaacson, a Lewiston attorney and an adjunct faculty member at Bowdoin College, about the independence movement in Quebec. On Aug. 20, Canada's Supreme Court declared that Quebec does not have the right to secede unilaterally. But the governing party in Quebec, the Parti Quebecois, disputes the jurisdiction of the court claiming that if Quebec voters favor independence, they have the unilateral right to secede. Thus far, separatists in Quebec have gambled on two independence referendums, in 1980 and 1995, but lost both times. With a comparison between the independence movement in Quebec and the American Revolution.
