Bloc Montreal calls out use of N-word in leaders' debate: “Only in Quebec”

“The excessive use of the word, regardless of the context, will keep discrimination alive and well in Quebec for years to come.”

Bloc Montréal candidate Joel DeBellefeuille has released a statement calling out Québec Solidaire leader Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois and Parti Québécois leader Paul St-Pierre Plamondon for using the N-word in quoting the name of a book by Pierre Vallières at the Quebec leaders' debate on Thursday night.
DeBellefeuille posted a link to the video, where Plamondon taunts Nadeau-Dubois into saying the title of the book, which includes the N-word, for “academic freedom.”
“Only in Quebec, where it's 'OK' for leaders of political parties to drop the N-word on national television because it's 'only' a title of a book. Unbelievable."
—Joel DeBellefeuille
In another statement, DeBellefeuille said, “The excessive use of the word, regardless of the context, will keep discrimination alive and well in Quebec for years to come.”
