Reference Case brought before the Supreme Court of Canada to determine if Quebec had a right to Unilateral Secession under either The Constitution of Canada or International Law.

The court also ruled that international law was silent on the matter unless the people in question are oppressed, denied government representation, or a colony, in which cases they are granted a right to self-determination.
