Don’t just sit there, do something!

The proposed Charter of Quebec Values has left many of us wondering what happened.  When did our province become so completely derailed?  How is it possible that a province of immigrants has come to vilify The OtherWhat is the cutoff date between Us and Them?  This province has never been home to a single, monolithic culture, and we cannot legislate one into being now.

Over the coming months, there will surely be large and small protests against this xenophobic charter, and we are all called upon to make our voices heard.  Do not be the good man or woman who stood by and allowed “evil to triumph”.  Instead, raise your voice, hold up your sign, march in the protests, wear your black armband.  It is up to us, the good people, to ensure that everyone’s rights are safeguarded.

Our Québec is inclusive.
