3. If the Parti Quebecois wins a majority in the upcoming Quebec provincial election, it is unclear when or if a referendum on Quebec separation will occur. However, the party says they are
committed to holding another referendum. How concerned are you that there could be a referendum for those in Quebec to have the province separate from Canada and create their own country?

4. The last Quebec referendum, in 1995, asked Quebecers if the province should become sovereign ''after having made a formal offer to Canada for a new economic and political partnership.'' If
another referendum occurs and succeeds based on a ''clear majority'', and the rest of Canada negotiates the separation of Quebec, what is closest to your point of view?

Base: All Respondents
Weighted
The rest of Canada should negotiate a
continuation of some political and economic ties
to a separate Quebec
The rest of Canada should only negotiate an
outright break-up

5. A federal law, the Clarity Act, says that if there is another referendum, the rest of Canada would be compelled to negotiate the terms of a break-up with Quebec if a ''clear majority'' of Quebecers
supports separation in the referendum. The meaning of that term, ''clear majority'', is not defined. In your view, what percentage constitutes a ''clear majority'' of Quebecers in a referendum vote?
