WORLD IN BRIEF : CANADA : Queen to See Quebec Despite Warnings
Queen Elizabeth II, ignoring warnings from Quebec politicians, will go ahead with a visit to the French-speaking province Sunday, Canada’s 123rd anniversary, a government spokesman said. The main purpose of her visit had been to preside over Quebec’s signing of the national constitution. However, the accord fell apart last week over an amendment that would have recognized the province as a distinct society. Michel Legere, the mayor of Hull, Quebec, said he and other local politicians will not meet the queen when she stops in Hull.
