How far will Quebec go to nurture its video game industry?
The Globe and Mail
It is the one piece of good news that stands out in an otherwise grim Quebec fall.
Emily Carroll's insight:

This talks about all the jobs the vidieo game industry is giving lots of people in Quebec. It is a up side to all the riots and such in quebec that are going on. The game industry is giving people jobs and money so they can live well.

I think it is interesting to hear their perspective on this. I like that they are trying to think of the jobs and money part. A lot of younger people would be wanting a job like this.

The Canadian province - or, officially, “nation within a united Canada” - has been divided, sometimes bitterly, on its own constitutional future for decades.

I think that Quebec should still stay a part of Canada. I understand why they would want to become their own country. I do not think that they would be able to make it on their own.

The headwear ban in Quebec is a very big deal for the peole who live there and have lived there. It is going to show that the Canada's Quebec government is rasit against muslums and there religion.

I think that it should be their choice to wear headwear. If they want to wear it then it is their choice. They should be able to express themselves.

Emily Carroll's insight:

This shows that in Ontario it goes against Quebec's ban on head dresses. They think it is racist and that people should be able to live the way they want to.

This was a cool article. It matters more what they know than what they dress like and what religion they practice. It is a good way to integrate different races and religions.

Emily Carroll's insight:

Quebec has done riots and protests about the ban on head dresses they find it rasist and outragious. They fight for what they belive in and it is showing that part of canada is trying to get rid of muslums beliefs. This affects canada and Quebec on bad turms.

Thousands are outraged at the Parti Quebecois charter of values -- a charter that proposes to prohibit the wearing of religious symbols by public employees. As these symbols are disproportionately worn by racialized immigrants in particular Muslims and Sikhs, critics insist that Marois is playing the "race card." Many insist that the Charter of Values will create a "second class of citizens." Amongst this outrage, there are critics emerging from strange quarters. Stephen Harper insists that the charter will fail and if it doesn't, the federal government will launch a legal challenge. Jason Kenney has ridden into the struggle -- calling the charter a "Monty Pythonesque" absurdity. Even the much maligned Margaret Wente is up in arms -- calling Premier Pauline Marois's move the "stirring of populist resentment." NDP's Thomas Mulclair dismissed it as "base politics," while Trudeau went as far as to compare it to segregation (a comparison he later softened). Under all this pressure, it seems that Marois may be backtracking.
