Jacques Parizeau

Last updated

The man of my life is gone.  In peace, surrounded by love.  After a titanic battle, hospitalized for five months, through one ordeal after another, with an uncommon courage. He surrendered tonight… We are devastated.  We love him and will love him forever.

His state funeral mass was held at Saint-Germain d’Outremont Roman Catholic church, the Parizeau family parish. [19]

Quebec sovereignty movement Quebec independence movement

The Quebec sovereignty movement is a political movement whose objective is to achieve the sovereignty of Quebec, a province of Canada since 1867, including in all matters related to any provision of Quebec's public order that is applicable on its territory. Sovereignists suggest that the people of Quebec make use of their right to self-determination - a principle that includes the possibility of choosing between integration with a third state, political association with another state or independence - so that Quebecois, collectively and by democratic means, give themselves a sovereign state with its own independent constitution.

The Three Periods is a Quebec sovereigntist strategy. Before the 1993 federal election in Canada, Parti Québécois (PQ) leader Jacques Parizeau evoked a strategy for attainment of Quebec independence called the Three Periods. The strategy is partly inspired by the three periods of play in ice hockey. It is seen as a typical Parizeau concept: dedicated and straightforward, especially compared to some sovereigntist attitudes like a few of René Lévesque's or to the étapisme or "step-by-step" strategy.
