Like most religious minorities in Quebec, I am only slightly shocked by the proposed charter of values. The people that at the short end of the proverbial legislation stick are kids. Because our kids will live the rest of their future in the shadow of the laws and governments we support, it is imperative to consult them. So I decided to put my ear to the ground, and asked my youth group girls and their friends what they thought of the Quebec charter of values. Here are some reactions by girls age 12-16, all from different backgrounds and religions.

Will A New Indian Miss America Actually Change Anything?

Moments after Indian-American Nina Davuluri was crowned Miss America 2013, a flood of haters on Twitter (surprise, surprise) were quick to point out the beauty queen's non-white ethnicity. She responded with a simple message of embracing diversity and rising above racism. But while an Indian Miss America can certainly be a positive role model for other South Asian kids who are picked on for their brown skin, is being part of a beauty pageant the best way to send this message? As the history of pageants go, they've always been degrading.
