Watch: An important message from Quebec for the Scottish

MONTREAL — The leader of a Quebec political party that advocates for independence has a message for Scotland ahead of the country’s referendum: “You will be worse off if you vote ‘no.'”

Sol Zanetti, the head of Option Nationale, kicks off a video published on YouTube by harking back to 1759 and the Battle of the Plains of Abraham, which was an important historical moment in the Seven Years’ War, leading to the surrender of Quebec to the British.

“The 78 Fraser Highland Regiment climbed the hill of the Plains of Abraham in Quebec City and bravely fought to conquer Quebec for England,” said Zanetti.

“That was very thoughtful. This is why today we share a Queen.”
