THE MUSLIMS IN QUÉBEC- INTEGRATION OR OCCUPATION OF THE TERRITORY…
By Bernard Bujold –
The project to create an exclusively Muslim cemetery near Quebec (St-Appolinaire) was refused by a referendum on Sunday, July 16, 2017. The result of the vote 19-16 represents well the position of the whole world.
The debate surrounding the outcome of this referendum goes beyond the mere use of land. Rather, it addresses the issue of the integration of immigrant populations and their occupation of the new territory on which they live.
The society is totally divided right in the middle on the subject of integration facing the occupation: the right against the left.
But this division goes beyond immigration and affects political life in general. From Donald Trump to Emmanuel Macron, Justin Trudeau and even to the Pope and his church. The division is black and white! Interesting as a social phenomenon but also very worrying because there is only one planet earth … whereas it would take two!
