WeAreQuebec.org is a new online meme gaining momentum in the lead up to today’s provincial election. It’s a place of support for those targeted by the Charter of Values, where you can post a photo of yourself in a kippa, hijab or turban in solidarity with Quebec’s minority communities. It’s fun, but with a serious message. Off the Hour’s Andre Goulet spoke with Joey Tanny of WeAreQuebec.org about the website’s motivations and the role of social media in organizing against the Charter of Values.
