A small, far-right group, named Pégida Québec (for the parent group in Germany that has been holding "evening walks" against supposed "islamisation") is planning to demonstrate in Petit-Maghreb of all places (in St-Michel, just east of the neighbourhood where I live) and a variety of antiracists and left groups are planning a counter-demonstration.
Le Petit-Maghreb is a neighbourhood where there are a lot of North African businesses, but there are still Italian ones, and many Haitian establishments and others from several different Latin American countries. In general, it is a poor, multicultural neighbourhood where there is a large number of newcomers. Its problems are typical of such neighbourhoods, whatever the ethnic origins of the inhabitants. And like everywhere else, there are condos going up, as it is on a métro line.
