Racist Sign Found In Town That Refused Muslim Cemetery

Sure. Okay:

A sign has appeared outside a cemetery in the Quebec town of Saint-Honoré with an unmistakeable message, “Saguenay ville blanche.” The sign appeared shortly after the local Muslim association said it would attempt to revive a two-year-old plan to have space for Muslim burials in the town’s cemetery.

The incident isn’t the first time the “Saguenay ville blanche” sign has been found. According to the Montreal Gazette, a similar sign appeared in 2014, along with xenophobic stickers.

The town’s mayor has spoken out against the message behind the sign. In comments made to CBC, Saint-Honoré Mayor Bruno Tremblay said, “To have signs like this on our territory, it’s unacceptable.” The mayor was reportedly having breakfast at a diner when other patrons told him about the sign.

“In 2017, we need to be more open-minded than that,” said Tremblay, adding that he had sent a work crew out to take the sign down. “Whether it’s a Muslim cemetery or a Catholic cemetery, or both, what does it change? … We’re all humans.”

Much of the focus on cemetery spaces for the Muslim community only came to light after Alexandre Bissonnette killed of six worshippers at a Quebec City mosque while they were praying, one of the worst mass shootings in the country in years.

The posting of the sign comes at an time of increased polarization between Quebecers and Muslims residents of the province. Last week, residents of another small town in the province, Saint-Apollinaire, voted against overturning zoning laws to allow the construction of a cemetery space for Muslims.

    First it is necessary to know if the sign was posted by Muslims or leftists. If not, then it is a good sign that the victims of this imposed population replacement or genocide have decided to defend themselves and fight back. I hope it is the last one.

    • Rather like that Koran incident the other day.

      Quite a coincidence.

        Yes, and probably done in order to use it as an excuse to override the vote by those directly affected.

    According to Saguenay’s Wikipedia page, the ethnic and religious make up is as follows:

    “Visible minorities: About 0.2% of the population identified as Black, 0.2% as Chinese, and 0.1% as Latin American.”

    “Religion: About 96% of the population identified as Roman Catholic in 2001 while almost 3% said they had no religious affiliation. Among smaller denominations the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Methodists attracted some 0.2% each, while the Baptists, Anglicans, Muslims, United Church, Mormons and Pentecostals each accounted for about 0.1% of the population.”

    So the sign, regardless of who put it up, is more a statement of fact than a “racist

    I’m happy for the local push back. If the local folks don’t want the cemetary; so be it.

    We’ve never seen false flag racist incidents used to further failed objectives. No, sir. Merely considering race hoaxes is considered thought crime and is punishable by re-education in government-operated behavioral modification units. Any Canadians witnessed hesitating to endorse the cultural edicts of Chairman Trudeau should be reported to the Office of Cultural Enforcement nearest you. Failure to report actionable cultural violations will result in investigation by authorities and will be referred to the Committee for Cultural Alignment for legal decision.
