We sit down with the immigrant-rights activist, who has written extensively about the fact that he has been living illegally in the U.S. for years.
The gunman who allegedly killed one person and injured another at a rally for the newly elected premier of Quebec last week is now in police custody and is expected back in court next month.
Richard Henry Bain opened fire at a victory rally for Pauline Marois, whose separatist Parti Quebecois party won the provincial election by a slim margin. The alleged shooter yelled “The English are waking up!” as police dragged him out of the rally. Quebec is a majority French-speaking province where tensions over language issues have resulted in two referendums — both unsuccessful — on separating from Canada.
So what is the current state of French/English coexistence in the province, and can we expect another referendum on separation?
