Après qu’un ministre québécois ait été hué à la vigile de vendredi pour les victimes de l’attentat de London, les mêmes que d’habitude se sont complus dans le «tone policing.»
Tone policing by the usual suspects ensued after a Quebec minister was booed at Friday’s vigil for the London attack victims.
“Why are we still reverent towards an institution that’s capable of such horrific acts of violence? Why not just seize their assets to fund the search for more grave sites, and pay reparations?”
“Here in Quebec, we need to stop pretending that the mistreatment of Indigenous communities is solely a ROC (Rest of Canada) problem. This is our legacy, too.”
“Suddenly, people were no longer focusing on the actions of people implicated in the horrific death of a 37-year-old mother of seven. Suddenly, the spotlight was on coroner Géhane Kamel’s tone.”

“Despite the employers’ council calling the current labour shortage a ‘disaster,’ the CAQ’s nationalist platform continues to stubbornly focus on its anti-immigrant agenda.”
“In every village, there’s a village idiot. And the pandemic has, inevitably, exposed every single one of them.”
“The Premier seems to operate as if he’s still the CEO of a multimillion-dollar business conglomerate and democracy is just his boardroom.”
Curfew enforcement scapegoats and shames the public, while virus transmission occurs mainly in places that the province refuses to close.
