In 1995 the people of Quebec voted only by the narrowest of
margins not to separate from Canada. Yet
Canada remains united twenty years later. The lecture examines how the referendum happened, as the third in a
series, and why it has not been repeated. The lecturer draws on his experience as British High Commissioner to
Canada in 1992-1996.
