Canada Is Facing A Critical Period In Its History. The Royal Society of Canada believed it had the responsibility to instigate both deep reflection and debate within the vast and diverse intellectual network it represents throughout Canada. So, in November 1996, the Fellows of all three Academies of the Society gathered to discuss perspectives on Canada's future. The symposium Can Canada Survive? Under What Terms and Conditions? resulted in ten valuable papers: -- Lise Bissonette (Le Devoir, Montreal): 'L' etat du Quebec et du Canada un an plus tard'-- Tom Flanagan (Political Science, University of Calgary): 'Canada and Quebec: Where Are We Now?'-- Charles Taylor (Philosophy, McGill University): 'Deep Diversity and the Future of Canada'-- Guy Rocher (Droit, Universite de Montreal): 'Le Canada pourrait survivre en association avec le Quebec'-- Alan Cairns (Political Science, University of British Columbia): 'Constitutional Reform: The God that Failed'-- Jean Laponce (Political Science, University of British Columbia): 'Comment conjuguer le Quebec et le Canada?'-- Cooper Langford (Chemistry, University of Calgary): 'A Matrix Model of Canada'-- Margaret Conrad (History, Mount Saint Vincent University): 'Why Am I (Sometimes) A Sovereignist'-- Guy Laforest (Science politique, Universite de Laval): 'Conjurer le tragique'-- Philip Resnick (Political Science, University of British Columbia) 'Quebec is not an Island'
