  • Description

    At a three-day conference in Montreal on Sunday (29 MAY), Quebec's ruling Separatist Party moderated its policies on both domestic and foreign affairs in an effort to attract support for its goal of independence. The Parti Quebecois, or P.Q. adopted a less militant programme on most major issues, including the matter of Quebec's alliances. It also reconfirmed that a referendum would be held before any major steps were taken toward political separation from Canada. NBC's Don Murray reports.

    Quebec's separatist party, the Parti Quebecois, led by M. Rene Levesque won a resounding victory in last November's provincial election. M. Levesque wants eventual independence for the French-speaking province. M. Pierre Trudeau, the Canadian Prime Minister said the election result gave the winners a mandate only to form a provincial government, not to separate Quebec from Canada.
