Amazing what a plan and priorities can do, eh Paul? 
(en francais)

I like Harper's approach on this file. Simple, small steps to begin with. No grand plans and announcements, just pragmatic progress.

To advance on these issues there will be much discussion, debate and compromise. It must start with the resolution of small issues and build on a sense of trust.

This isn't about one man's legacy, it's about the growth and evolution of our country.

Harper says constitutional reform coming
Not on the scale of Mulroney's

Liberal Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Benoit Pelletier called Harper's plans "a very good start.''

"It's just the beginning,'' Pelletier said. "These elements are proving that we are going toward something that is new, and we have the historic responsibility to take this opportunity in order to make sure we advance the case of Quebec while strengthening the federation.''

Action democratique du Quebec Leader Mario Dumont said major changes are coming to the way Canada deals with Quebec.

"There is a healthy spirit of co-operation that is very different from what we've seen for years,'' Dumont said.

"We must take full profit from Mr. Harper's force of character, his desire to do things differently, the door he has opened wide to Quebec.''
