1), it also places liberalism in the hypocritical position of favouring the culture of the majority by default. 3 for state claims to neutrality with regard to language). ‘Like in a game of shifting mirrors, the civic nation to some becomes the ethnic nation in the eyes of the other. This is so because ethnicity cannot be driven out of politics by ideal political arrangements’ (Arel 2001: 76). As such, the best one can hope for is for the state to be evenhanded with regard to ethnocultural identity (Carens 2000).

Yet while he was critical of the type of federalism that had existed until then and which merely perpetuated the dominance of English Canada, Trudeau was nevertheless against the granting of collective rights which, in his opinion, were by definition ethnocentric and therefore undemocratic: ‘a truly democratic government cannot be “nationalist”, because it must pursue the good of all its citizens, without prejudice to ethnic origin. The democratic government, then, stands for and encourages good citizenship, never nationalism’ (Trudeau 1977: 169).

While the liberal interpretation of citizenship ‘emphasises rights’, civic republicanism thus ‘places its stress on duties’ (Heater 1999: 4). Not surprisingly, a relatively high degree of identification with the state is also expected from citizens in the latter model: together, the state and its citizens form ‘a community, an organic society, not merely a collection of individuals’ (Heater 1999: 55). The civic republican conception of citizenship is much older than the liberal one, with its origins in the work of Aristotle and Cicero, and later in that of Machiavelli during the Renaissance.
