LETTER:Quebec's political conundrum

From Mr Conrad Black

Sir: It was outrageous and irresponsible for you to lead your readers to believe that I would have voted for the secession of Quebec from Canada had I had a vote in Quebec's referendum yesterday (report, 31 October). You spliced a quote from a speech I gave at the University of Alberta last week in which I made it clear that I was strenuously opposed to the secession of Quebec but felt that, if it occurred, interesting possibilities would be opened up for English-speaking Canada as well. No honest reading of my remarks would justify your interpretation of it.
