on December 29th, 2021
Comment appelle-t-on une personne de race noire conduisant un automobile de luxe à Longueuil ? On appelle ça un Québécois au volant ! Joël De Bellefeuille, un homme de race noire né au Québec, affirme avoir été intercepté sans motifs par la police plus d’une dizaine de fois au cours des 12 dernières années comme « Noir au volant » alors qu'il conduisait son véhicule.

"Calling them out"

Joel DeBellefeuille is appalled. A hole in the fence at Confederation Park and the veritable jungle of overgrown weeds and bramble are left to linger as if nobody sees them, says the NDG resident. “It is so blatantly obvious…” he laughs, “a new park sign affixed to the same fence with a massive hole.” A council candidate in Loyola for Mouvement Montréal, he's not talking about campaigning or politics.
