It depends on where you are in Canada. Not sure if BC stands for British Columbia or not, but I've read polls suggesting it's as high as 20% in parts of Canada. Obviously, 20%(in parts) couldn't pass a referendum, but the sentiment is there, which is why I used it as an example. Similarly, a portion of Scotland would prefer to be independent, but that's unlikely to happen as well.
