  Abstract:  French-English Nationalism and the Quebec Separation Issue. The 1980 and 1995 Referenda. The present paper is a historical analysis of the relation between French and English inhabitants of Canada in the last sixty years of the twentieth century. The French community of Quebec has developed a specific life style and, in 1980 and 1995, asked for separation from the English community on political, economic, social and cultural grounds with the view to preserve its specificity against English domination. The history of the 1980 and 1995 Referenda revealed that they acknowledged the distinct character of the French community against the background of the multicultural Canadian state but, at the same time, the necessity that French and English citizens should live together in concord in one and the same country - Canada.
