New Book

I bought this book recently, The Morning After: The 1995 Quebec Referendum and the Day that Almost Was by Chantal Hébert with Jean Lapierre.

This book revisits the Quebec sovereignty referendum from 1995. Instead of being a mere retelling of history, the authors looked to the days following October 30, 1995 and, based upon interviews with the key players from 22 years ago, imagined what would have happened had the vote been a majority for Yes.

The authors interviewed former Quebec premier Jacques Parizeau, Bloc Québécois leader Lucien Bouchard, former Prime Minister Jean Chrétien plus other MP’s and federal and provincial party leaders. 

Having lived through the referendum, I definitely find this book very interesting. A must read for any Canadian politic/history junkie.

More to come…
