Why N-word is a neutronium potato

CBC summarizes how Gabriel Nadeau‑Dubois was backed into a corner in the first leaders’ debate and taunted until he said the N‑word (in French) presumably to demonstrate that he is not too “woke” – and why the word (in either language) has become the pivot of a debate about academic freedom in Quebec.

A second debate is planned for Thursday evening but all five leaders will also be on Tout le monde en parle this Sunday too, and that may be the real moment of truth.
