“Choose Your Quebec” Election Poster Riles Reds

An election poster showing a woman wearing a Quebec-branded hat facing another wearing a Muslim niqab with the tagline “Choose Your Quebec” has reds in the Canadian city shouting “racism”—and has even provoked a police investigation.

The poster, put up by candidate Alexandre Cormier-Denis from the Parti Indépendantiste, first appeared outside the Beaubien Metro station.

The poster was quickly taken down by Montreal police as possible “hate speech,” but because Cormier-Denis is registered with Quebec’s director of elections, it went back up just as quickly.

Police spokesman Benoit Boisselle said police took the sign down after receiving 911 complaints from residents.

Cormier-Denis, who is president of the francophone Horizon Québec Actuel organization—which has close links to France’s Front National—was unapologetic, saying he’d been in touch with Montreal police to complain about their interfering with his campaign signs.





“I was assured that this would not happen again, that obviously it was not in the mandate of the police to interfere with the issue of the electoral signs,” he said.

Cormier-Denis pointed out that the sign was not racist because the same woman appeared in both images, and that it was merely meant to represent two different “models of integration.”

Voters in the Montreal district of Gouin will head to the polls May 29.

The poster was copied directly from a 2015 French Front National poster.

  1. Fascinating to imagine being in the head of the offended person who called the cops on the image. On one hand, she would think "there's nothing wrong with a niqab". On the other hand, she'd think "you mustn't compare a hat with a niqab". The police 911 call is an expression of the cognitive dissonance between those two contradictory ideas.

  2. There is NO choice to be made! Quebec is a White, Christian province and no unwanted aliens are going to change that – not now, not EVER! Anybody trying to make people believe that Islam and Muslims are part of Canada is a subversive snake and deserves to be punished severely.

    Politicians may want to change Canada's demographics to benefit Mohammadans, but it's against the PEOPLE's wishes, and must not be allowed to happen!

  3. Soros people would have called the police over a poster. Also college professors could have ordered their students but then professors are Soros clowns too.
