In 1976 the Parti Québécois led by René Lévesque won the Québec provincial election, promising to hold a referendum on sovereignty-association.

Lévesque adopted a constitutional strategy known as the 'beau risque' based on the idea that a political reconciliation with the rest of Canada was possible.
