Canada's type of government is a Constitutional monarchy. This means that they go by a constitution but they still have a monarch leader (head of state/ king or queen). But, they also have a parliamentary democracy because the head of state has no power and their power lies with the peoples vote. They do use a Parliament and house of commons as their legislative branch. The system is federal because the states have representatives in the government, and they have a balanced amount of power.

Quebec Independence Revolution
The Quebec Independence Revolution started because, all of Canada was ruled by Great Britain except for Quebec, which as ruled by France. When Canada gained their independence, some of the people of Quebec wanted to become their own country and gain independence from Canada because they felt that more and more English Canadians were coming into Quebec and basically taking away their culture and their language. In the late 1900s it got more extreme. They took a vote and (I may not be accurate) and it was 49.4% in favor of a free Quebec and 50.6% to stay with Canada. That just tells you about how close the battle. Today there is still people in Quebec that want to gain independence from Canada. I honestly think that Quebec should and eventually will gain its independence from Canada.
