Are Quebecers less tolerant than other Canadians? Ongoing debate about secularism and religious symbols has led many observers to ask that very question. Premier Fran├žois Legault denies that racism or Islamophobia exists, even after gunman Alexandre Bissonnette opened fire in a Quebec City mosque in 2017, killing six people and wounding 19 others. The Quebec government has now established a religious symbols ban for some public employees. The increasingly diverse new reality is sometimes embraced and sometimes met with anti-immigrant sentiment if not outright hostility from alt-right groups.
