A Nation in Crisis? The Legacy of the Charlottetown Accord

Thirty years ago, Canadians were asked to participate in a national referendum on the Charlottetown Accord, a nation-defining package of constitutional changes. For all its faults, the Accord held the promise of providing a partial, constitutional solution to the feelings of deep-seated alienation that are prominent among Quebecers, Westerners, and Indigenous peoples. When Canadians rejected the Accord in October 1992, they also gave up — for thirty years and counting — on this promise, and on the idea that the future of the Constitution could be determined via multilateral dialogue.
