Jacob faced accusations that he advised Quebec members of the Canadian Forces to join a Quebec army if there was a winning vote for Quebec sovereignty in the 1995 Quebec referendum. The prevailing Liberal government decided to investigate these remarks, while the Reform Party demanded Jacob be charged with sedition. Reaction to this incident included a 22 March 1996 sketch on the English language television comedy series Royal Canadian Air Farce where Jacob "learns the meaning of the word sedition".
