Re: “White Noise” by John Allemang (July/August 2019)

I recently purchased the July/August issue, and I  stopped reading John Allemang’s “White Noise” after the fourth paragraph:

Race-baiting populists haven’t been able to gain the traction achieved by politicians in the United States and Europe (poor Quebec, as always, excepted). Immigration, far from being seen as an existential threat to some ancient sense of who we really are (Je me souviens and all that), is an essential part of our cultural identity and traditions, white and otherwise.

Could you explain why your editorial policy makes it acceptable for authors to express open contempt toward Québécois?
