The main idea supporting my analysis is as follows: the future of Quebec depends primarily on three major components of Quebec society, taking into account their demographic weight, their economic importance and their political influence, that is to say the French majority, the English minority and the [other] cultural or ethnic communities, while retaining the contribution of the aboriginal nations.
It is probably true that Anglo-Quebecers find it very beneficial to considered consider themselves in Quebec as the worthy representatives of the majority and dominant group in Canada. In the same way, it is quite legitimate for the first generations of immigrants to loyally remain indebted to their host country, Canada, and to nourish their dream of belonging to a great North-American nation. It remains nonetheless that a good number of them recognize the power of the ''forces vives'' of French-speaking Quebec which tends unrelentingly towards the emancipation of its people and its autonomy, its sovereignty, its recognition and its participation in the concert of nations.
The current polemic confers (once again) to the Jewish community the role of scapegoat for the dissatisfactions of those who deplore the refusal of cultural communities to adhere to the project of the French majority. "But where are", they say, "the supporters of the sovereignist option among ethnic minority? Where are their spokesmen? Why are their testimonies so diffuse that one hardly hears them and recognizes them?"
