Quote of the Week

“The Government of Quebec and Quebecers are not racists. There may be racists in Quebec, as there are in the rest of Canada and as there are in the rest of the world. There may be people who are anti-Muslim and I regret that. […] But to call Quebecers anti-Muslims, to say that the law on secularism reflects anti-Muslim sentiment, is to show a great misunderstanding of who Quebeckers are and what the law is.” - Jean-François Roberge, the Quebec Minister of the French Language and Canadian Relations on the comments by Canada's first special representative on combating Islamophobia, Amira Elghawaby
