Exclusive Interview - Former Quebec Premier Bernard Landry speaks with Macleans.ca

    Landry speaks on what went wrong in the last provincial election, why
    sovereignty isn't dead, and how to tackle the "reasonable accommodation
    debate" in The Macleans.ca Interview, online today.

    TORONTO, April 18 /CNW/ - In a rare in-person interview with English
media, former Parti Québécois premier Bernard Landry sits down with
Macleans.ca's Phillipe Gohier to offer his interpretation of last month's
Quebec election.
    "Mario Dumont is not a federalist ... Mario Dumont doesn't even want
Quebec to be referred to as "the province of Quebec," Landry says of
suggestions that the results represented a victory for federalists.
    Also featured in The Macleans.ca Interview online today, Landry weighs in
on the strength of the sovereignty movement and the best way for his party to
tackle the divisive "reasonable accommodation" debate.
    "Are reasonable accommodations necessary? Yes, they are - as few as
possible and as reasonable as possible," explains Landry. "The goal of a
country is to integrate its new arrivals. Otherwise, there can be all sorts of
problems, like discrimination and ghettoization."
