Canada's laboriously crafted national unity program is only a week old, but already it appears to be in trouble. The program--actually a package of rough-draft constitutional amendments--is supposed to knit Canada's divergent regions back together. It is also meant to persuade the French-speaking province of Quebec to call off a referendum on sovereignty scheduled for October.

If Quebec's voters decide in a referendum election Oct. 30 to launch their province toward independence from Canada, would they also be taking the fast track to bankruptcy? And would they drag the rest of Canada down with them? Montreal clothing manufacturer Alvin C. Segal considered these questions the other day as he contemplated the latest poll showing the election in a dead heat. "I'm feeling very uncomfortable," he said. "I have my life invested here."

After months of public hearings and closed-door marathon debates, a special commission created to determine the political future of Quebec has come out in favor of a referendum by October, 1992, to choose whether the province should remain in Canada. The recommendation makes it highly likely that citizens of the French-speaking province will get their much-hoped-for chance to vote on whether to remain in Canada. Recent polls suggest that given such a chance, Quebecers would vote to secede.

The co-chairmen of a commission set up to help decide whether Quebec should remain a part of Canada have proposed a referendum on the matter by September in the French-speaking province. The suggestion, contained in an internal working paper, showed a surprising tilt toward sovereignty on the part of the co-chairmen--surprising especially because their group was convened last year by federalists hoping to find ways to keep Quebec in Canada.
