Charter of Québec Values – The World is Watching

On October 26th, Noam Chomsky gave a talk at Université de Montréal.  During question period, he was asked to give his opinion on the Charter of Quebec Values.  As a respected political commentator and activist, his opinion is likely to carry a significant amount of weight with the international community and all those who are watching Québec to see if the current administration will succeed in passing this legislation.

Will Québec draw a line between their definition of “us” and some arbitrary notion of “them”? Or will the people of Québec remember that The New World has always been multicultural, from the moment the first non-native stepped off the boat.
