Written by a respected western Canadian writer, Debts to Pay offers a fresh point of view on the perennial questions of Quebec's place in the Canadian federation.
Rejecting the hardline positions of both sovereigntists and federalists, Conway attempts to understand Quebec's demands by understanding its history. Through a discussion of relations between Quebec and Canada in the past and present, he explores the division of power between the two societies and provides insight into the source of Quebec's grievance.
Debts to Pay offers readers genuine insight into the bitter and longstanding rift that remain a threat to the integrity of the Canadian nation.

Reviews

"Interesting and informative reading.... Conway believes, as do most Canadians, that Quebec must be granted special status in the federation or it will separate from Canada. The book gives a strong case for this."
