The Canadian government has, via its MPs, called for a negotiated peaceful settlement between the Separatists Southern Cameroons Independence Movements and La Republique du Cameroun to end the 3- year armed conflict in Anglophone regions of the North West and South West regions.
The Canadian government believes its model for Quebec can be replicated in Southern Cameroons. However 95% of Southern Cameroonians want complete independence from the majority French Cameroun and will thus not accept a Federal status with autonomous political structures if it’s short of full independence.
