Former premier says Que. should not be multicultural
A former Quebec premier spoke out Saturday on the proposed values charter.
Bernard Landry spoke at a forum saying the province “is not and should not be multicultural”, adding that's reflected in the planned charter.
Regarding the ensuing debate following the charter's unveiling, Landry admits it's intense, but at least it's civilized and that looks good for the province as well as Parti Quebecois.
He told a group of roughly 250 people that Quebec is a nation, not a race, adding he's enraged when he hears someone refer to Quebec as a province.
Landry also says controversey over the charter has brought the debate over Quebec independence back on the front burner.
