And @sbergeron  added he hoped that this law (I'm not sure if he meant #bill96  or the motion, which was what the initial question was about) would reaffirm the authority of the National Assembly to ensure that it could better protect the French language in Quebec. 14/n

@sbergeron  went on to talk about how he believes the Quebec government is completely within its rights to unilaterally amend the Canadian Constitution by stating Quebec is a nation, that nation's official language is French, and that that is the common language of Quebeckers 13/n

Second part: "acknowledge the will of Quebec to enshrine in its constitution that Quebeckers form a nation, that French is the only official language of Quebec and that it is also the common language of the Quebec nation." 9/n

Does this mean that by voting for this motion MPs give their approval to #bill96  and Quebec's government desire to unilaterally amend the constitution as it proposes (nationhood/language) through s. 45? You can argue no. It just asks MPs to state what's in the Constitution. 8/n

Breaking apart the motion, on the face of it, one can argue it just repeats common facts. "House agree that s. 45 of the Constitution Act, 1982, grants Quebec and the provinces exclusive jurisdiction to amend their respective constitutions" <-- Yes, the Constitution says that 7/n

Instead, because the Conservatives, the NDP and the Liberals all hope to make gains at each others expense , and that of the Bloc, in Quebec all these federalist parties who could have worked together are going to give the Bloc a big win tomorrow. 5/n

Let's recall that this is what @stephenharper  did back in 2006, when @GillesDuceppe  tried to introduce a Quebec nation motion. (Sidebar: at the time, @JustinTrudeau  was critical of @M_Ignatieff  who had suggested recognizing Quebec as a nation). 4/n
