With the popularity of the Parti Quebecois on the rise and the possibility of a provincial election there as soon as this fall, observers say it is not just in Harper's own interests to improve relations with Quebec, but also important for federalism in Canada.
"A government that doesn't appear to care or even pander to Quebec, that's bad for federalism," McGill University history Prof. Desmond Morton said.

Quebec has long received concessions from government and under Harper the situation hasn't changed much.
