According to an interesting article in The National Post, a Canadian newspaper:  “Quebec’s ‘reasonable accommodation’ consultations could degenerate into volatile forums for xenophobes fed up with minorities, and airing their grievances could have ‘major consequences’ for society, the two men heading the process say.”

As countries (and in this case provinces) try to resolve immigration issues, xenophobes tend to be at the forefront of the debates.  Those heading the process of the public forums to be held in Quebec appear sensitive to the possible negative consequences of the voices of hatred to society as a whole.  This sensitivity from our leaders is left out of the equation in this country’s immigration debate.
