Besides, how did Elijah Harper die?
Also Know, what is the Meech Lake accord and why did it fail? It was intended to persuade the government of Quebec to symbolically endorse the 1982 constitutional amendments by providing for some decentralization of the Canadian federation. Failure to pass the Accord greatly increased tensions between Quebec and the remainder of the country.
why did Elijah Harper defeat the accord?
Role in Meech Lake Accord In 1990, Harper achieved national fame for his refusal to accept the Meech Lake Accord, a constitutional amendment package negotiated to gain Quebec's acceptance of the Constitution Act, 1982. Well I was opposed to the Meech Lake Accord because we weren't included in the Constitution.
Why did Quebec oppose the Constitution Act?
Another reason Quebec wouldn't sign was a clause in the Charter of Rights which guaranteed minority language rights "where numbers warrant." This would have meant the end of Quebec's Bill 101 by protecting English language rights in Quebec (while at the same time protecting French language rights in the rest of Canada)
