I frequently read the Journal de Montreal, not because I agree with what they publish, but because I believe that I should see where those I disagree with get their information so that I'm better able to understand what informs their point of view rather than completely blind myself to their way of thinking (also most restaurants I go to tend to have only the JDM.) In my reading of the paper they tended to be uniformly anti-anglo with the articles typically talking about the concerns of the anglophone community in a mocking and unfair manner and the editorials downright engaging in anglo-bashing.
Well today I read on the site a series of articles that discussed the issues facing my community in a sympathetic and fair manner, conducted a poll on what we actually think rather than put words and beliefs in our mouths and apparently there is more to come in this series.
In addition 2 editorials were published by people who I know for a fact have written anti-anglo rants in the past (because I read them) and these editorials were more or less respectful (at least compared to their previous musings against anglos.)
Now am I completely off base and tin hatty in my initial reaction which is that they're playing some angle to push the anglophone community away from the Liberals in saying "this happened under the Liberals'" watch or something to that effect. I know anglos typically don't read JDM, but I already heard CJAD News reporting on this, this morning so it could still have an effect even if anglos don't read the original source. And considering that the paper is owned by a former PQ leader and possible future candidate Peladeau, its not as insane as this suggestion would be towards any other news outlet.
Because this is just downright bizarre, it would be like if Fox News suddenly started being sympathetic towards Latino Americans. Like I'll take and appreciate the JDM not pushing hate against my community and actually giving their readers who tend to have a negative view of anglos (based on the comments at least) a more positive perspective on the anglo community, but I don't know it feels like I just entered the twilight zone.
