Le Rassemblement pour l'Independance Nationale (RIN) is the largest and best organized of these political groupings. Founded in 1960 as a study group, it has evolved over the years into such a potent political force that today it represents the greatest threat to national unity that Canada has yet experieced. It is the purpose of this paper to present a detailed profile of the RIN: What it is, what it wants, where it is going. The emphasis will be placed on the internal structure and functioning of the party its actions and policies. Much has been written about the RIN and by the RIN, but as yet no one study has attempted to investigate in detail the party as suoh. It is hoped that this paper will clarify and illuminate just what is that which is called the RIN. I will not sit in judgment on the actions and goals of this movement for it is difficult and indeed hazardous to try to weigh the problems and emotions that confront this segment of the French- Canadian population. But I do feel that an analysis of their internal structure and functioning in relation to the strength of their movement can be attempted without any gross injustice or misinterpretation being done to the party and could actually beneficial not only for a better understanding of the RIN, but also to the study of political science in general.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to this SIP.
