A minority within a minority: Quebec’s struggle to face racism

Secularism in Quebec is “used to mask racism,” says a writer based in Montreal.
Idil Issa, a board member of Fondation Paroles de Femmes, points to Bill 62 as an example.
“How is it that in our society we tolerate restricting the rights of these women on the basis of their appearance,” she asks, “and then say that this is all about secularism?”
The law was set to prohibit women from wearing face coverings while receiving public services, but was stalled by a judge in December.
“I think what’s really going on is that this group is marginalized enough that we feel able to push this through. And nobody is going to be able to do anything about it.”
Lise Ravary, a columnist at Le Journal de Montreal, thinks the bill was a political ploy.
“There is probably not even 100 women in Quebec who wear niqab, but it was easy to pick on them, right?” she says.
“But at the same time Bill 62 doesn’t say you can’t wear your niqab in a public place,” she says. “It says that if you are getting a service from the state you have to show your face.”
A minority culture that dominates
These tensions around Bill 62 play out against the backdrop of Quebec’s special status, as a French-speaking minority within Anglophone Canada.
Living within Quebec, but outside the dominant white, francophone culture, is to live as a minority within a minority.A minority within a minority:
