~ Seventh Principle ~

“CANADIAN CULTURE” IS THAT OF THE CONSTITUENT PEOPLES.

EACH PROVINCE and each Territory of Canada be­longs to one of the constituent or Founding Peoples of Canada. The Parliament of Canada belongs to all of the Founding Peoples of Canada.  In con­se­quence, “Canadian culture” is defined as being the culture of one of the constituent peoples of Canada in its own Territorial or Pro­vin­cial locale; or as all the cultures of the Founding Peoples taken as a whole.

With demographic shifts, there may be more than one constituent people in a Province. In case of political difficulties where two con­stit­uent peoples come to occupy fairly equal majorities on their soil, talks may be undertaken to adjust provincial boundaries in order to maintain the federal principle of self-determination in Con­fed­er­ation.
