Are Quebecers less tolerant than other Canadians? Ongoing debate about secularism and
religious symbols has led many observers to ask that very question. The increasingly diverse new

emboldened anti-immigrant sentiment. One of the biggest questions Quebecers will have to face
is: What does this new reality mean for the Quebec identity? And who gets to consider
themselves a Quebecer? The author, a young journalist who moved to Quebec City from
Saskatchewan, has some critical questions for the adopted province she loves.
