January 3, 2008. Some people have a twisted view of history. Josee Legault, who writes for the Montreal Gazette, complains that the 2008 New Years celebration in Quebec City was a disappointment. Colonialism is a mental illness. Some can see this. According to Legault, Quebec’s major artists were absent. If they were boycotting the event, they showed good sense. For the world to escape the “colonial disease”, the most honest and sensitive artists will lead the way. They will break out of the delusion and find the vision needed to affect a cure. Healing is certainly needed here.
