Dans ses propres mots

“Multiculturalism may be a Canadian value but it’s not a Quebec one. We haven’t signed the Constitution of Canada because it contains this notion of multiculturalism.”

-Louise Beaudoin, PQ critic for secularism


  • They should start a new country with Alberta.

  • What a shameful, small-minded statement.

  • I've read two of Rene Levesque's books, among various other articles of his, and if "multiculturalism" was one of the key objections to his signature, he certainly kept a secret of it.

  • Leo, I'm confused. Are you referring to the PQ woman, or the idiot who posted at 12:41?

  • RV - Agreed. I've never seen Levesque use multiculturalism as an excuse for not signing the constitution anywhere before.

  • Alberta is far more tolerant than Quebec or quite frankly any other province in Canada. We are not the ones with the redneck as mayor.

  • Raison D'd'être of Rene and other separatists can't possibly be seen as being accepting of multi-culturalism. they, separatism and multi-culturalism, are antithetical in nature.

    I know Dan has spent some time there, but not sure how much time outside Montreal. But if you DO go outside MTL and chat with locals who support separation, you have a conversation that you could easily translate and change a few words, and you'd have a verbatim transcript in your hand of the standard chat with American bigots seeking walls on their borders and who think immigration needs to be stopped because America is becoming too brown, and too many people don't speak English.

    As for anonymous claiming that Alberta is somehow more tolerant than 'any other canadian province', I'm not sure if s/he's never left Alberta and that's the origin of this statement, or if s/he's an Alberta homosexual in ecstasy and hysterics over the fact the most tolerant province in the country recently declassified homosexuality as a mental illness; and is therefore blinded and unable to make anything close to a coherent or objective analysis.

  • I wasn't aware Alberta was ruled by a mayor...(although treating the province as a Frankish kingdom explains a lot of things) and I've lived in Calgary longer than too many people have been alive.

    Way to comment, tolerant genius.
