Quebec nationalism in the francophone press

Richard Martineau says Le Devoir is no longer Le Devoir since its editor refuses to regard Quebec’s francophone culture as the only one of value.

He must be joking: Le Devoir has just taken J‑F Lisée on as a regular columnist, and is still running pieces like Michel David’s Montreal sans accent complaining about city hall’s tacit acceptance that not everyone living here is a francophone.

How much Quebec nationalism is enough?

No, this blog is not about being an angryphone. My beef with strident Quebec nationalism is the damage it does to Montreal – the real Montreal that people live in, not the perfect francophone metropolis of nationalist imaginings.
