Here's what they look like.
As Canadian passport hopefuls line city blocks to get their travel documents, the Parti Québecois is offering a solution: independence. To mark the Fête nationale on June 24, the party has produced a draft passport for the would-be independent country of Quebec.
The passports, available online, feature images of Quebec landmarks, including the Parliament Building in Quebec City, the Sir Georges-Étienne Cartier monument near Montreal's avenue du Parc, and the Île-d'Orléans Bridge.
Also featured is Parti Québecois founder, René Lévesque.

The non-legal document includes a statement by the party's current leader, Paul St-Pierre Plamondon, and a signature box that declares its holder is "resolutely in love with Quebec."

"Quebec has everything it takes to become a country; this passport is an illustration of this possibility," St-Pierre Plamondon said in a separate statement published on the party website.
"It is to show, in concrete terms, that we have the means to say YES. And it's a positive and unifying way for Quebecers of all stripes to engage in a discussion about our collective identity."
On Friday, St-Pierre Plamondon handed out 1,000 print versions of the mock-up Quebec passport in his riding of Bourget, in Montreal's Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve borough.
"When I travel, I have to show my Canadian passport. Yet I don't feel like one," he added in the online post. "Many Quebecers, I think, feel the same way."
"I will be so proud — as a Quebecer, and as an independentist — the day I show the customs officer my Quebec passport."
