Petition to theHouse of Commons in Parliament assembled
On October 16, 2013, the Attorney General for Canada brought before the Supreme Court of Canada an intervention in support of the legal challenge of the Act respecting the exercise of the fundamental rights and prerogatives of the Québec people and the Québec State (CQLR c. E-20.2) “Bill 99”), which will be heard in March 2017, year of Canada 150th anniversary;
On October 23, 2013, the National Assembly unanimously carried a motion “condemn[ing] the intrusion by the Government of Canada into Québec’s democracy by seeking to invalidate the impugned provisions of [Bill 99]”, and”call[ing] on the Government of Canada to refrain from interfering […]”;
This Act reaffirms the inalienable right of the Québec people to self-determination and its right to determine alone the mode of exercise of its rights; and
During a referendum, the applicable democratic rule is that of 50% of the valid votes cast plus one.
We, the undersigned citizens of Québec, call upon the Government du Canada to withdraw its legal challenge of Bill 99 and reaffirm, like the Québec National Assembly, the fundamental principles set out in the Act.
