Quebec's Parti Quebecois government is lashing out at Prime Minister Stephen Harper for his government's decision to fight a Quebec law that outlines its right to secede.Alexandre Cloutier, the PQ's minister of intergovernmental affairs, called the move a "direct" and "devious" attack against the Quebec nation.Cloutier said only Quebec and its own legislature, the national assembly, have the right to determine whether the province stays in Canada — not the federal government."Obviously, they want to make sure we'll never get our country," Cloutier said Sunday at a news conference in Quebec City.Bill 99 declares that a referendum vote that gets 50 per cent plus one in favour of independence should be considered enough to separate from Canada.The federal government finally filed a legal intervention against the law last week, entering into a court challenge launched by a Quebec English-rights activist shortly after it was first adopted.The challenge, filed 13 years ago by Keith Henderson, argued Bill 99 is invalid under the Canadian constitution.For years, the federal government's strategy appears to have been to delay the court case. But with a trial date to be set this December in Quebec superior court, Ottawa decided to enter the fray.The federal government argues in its intervention that Bill 99 does not make provide the legal basis for "unilateral declaration of independence by the government."The dispute could revive constitutional questions that have remained mostly dormant for more than a decade.While support for independence is low in Quebec, the PQ, which holds a minority in the legislature, could use a battle with Ottawa to drum up support in an election.An election could be called as early as next month.Bill 99 was introduced in the year 2000 by Lucien Bouchard's PQ government in response to the federal Clarity Act, which states that support from a clear majority is required in a referendum vote to begin the process of secession.It passed unanimously.Describing the law "one of the most important in Quebec history," Cloutier said he will instruct government lawyers to do everything they can to fight the court challenge.He added the PQ will introduce a motion next week in support of Bill 99 and expects the support of all political parties.
