Decision (Series) (1980)

CBMT-TV in Montreal introduced Decision, a political discussion broadcast, as a local program after the Parti Quebecois took power in the 1976 Quebec election. The CBC picked the show up for national broadcast in anticipation of the 1980 referendum on sovereignty association. Montreal Gazette writer and program host L. Ian MacDonald introduced the topic for discussion and turned the show over to Montreal lawyer Stanley Hartt, who was the moderator for the debate. The show's guests were mainly people of political action and influence, not commentators. Subjects for discussion included the referendum process itself, the question of economic association, and influence on voters from outside Quebec.
