((Cheers from the separatists at the OUI or YES headquarters in Montreal, Quebec as early numbers showed Quebeckers had voted to break away from Canada and in effect start their own country. But as more results came in there was a turning point, when the Canadians who wanted to stay together slowly began to win.
It's estimated that as many as 90 percent of Quebec voters turned out to decide the issue that has bitterly divided Quebec while at the same time brought the rest of Canada together. For many, a Canada without Quebec is unthinkable. Quebec is Canada's largest province, over 7 million people. Almost all of them speak French as their first language. Many of the YES voters want independence, because they claim their French culture is fading in the rest of Canada, and that socially and economically they'd be better off governing themselves.
CLAUDE LAMARCHE/YES VOTER: MY INDEPENDENCE AND CULTURE ARE IMPORTANT.

But NO federalist voters are opposed to that point of view, they believe separation would lead to economic instability and political crisis in Quebec. NO voters like Michael and Cielo Carin believe Quebeckers who want independence haven't thought it through.
CELIO CARIN/NO VOTER

Canada's prime minister Jean Crethien, a Quebecker hasn't said for sure what the Canadian government will do. If Quebec votes to succeed, the government could accept Quebec's independence or force a Canada-wide election on the issue.
MANUEL GALLEGUS/CBS NEWS: If the separatists win they would not declare independence immediately, they will first try to negotiate and compromise with the government. But regardless, with the vote so close, Quebec remains divided and dissatisfied. Manuel Gallegus CBS News, Montreal.)
