Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard said Thursday he is fully aware there is currently little appetite across the country to re-open the Canadian Constitution.
His government is nevertheless going in that direction anyway, the premier told reporters.
“I’ll make a bet, If you go and ask any of the premiers across the country I don’t think anyone would want to open the Constitution right now,” Couillard said.
He said there is the impression in Canada that citizens shouldn’t talk about the fact Quebec never signed the Constitution when it was patriated from the U.K. in 1982.
