I don't know much about it, but Quebec sounds like Western Australia where a large proportion of the population believe they shouldn't be part of Australia.......Maybe we Aussies should let them go and then adopt New Zealand as a new state.

The same way it would affect the other provinces and territories - increased taxes to make up for the share of the national debt Quebec refuses to take with it, reduced freedom of travel within Canada, loss of revenues brought in by Quebec, increased tariffs on trade with Quebec, the introduction of new laws and regulations and the cost of countless governmental meetings to determine how to formalize separation, the cost of immigration issues for those who weren't pro-separation and would want to maintain Canadian citizenship but not want to leave their homes... the list goes on and on and on. It would be a fucking huge mess that everyone outside of Quebec would have to deal with, and since BC is one of the wealthier provinces, it would be footing the bill for a lot of the financial fallout.
