In the year 2000, Quebec farm practiced apartheid

Martin Patriquin wrote in the April 30, 2005, The Globe and Mail: "When Celissa Michel arrived at work one day back in 2000, he saw a new sign posted reminding day labourers that they weren't allowed to eat in the regular cafeteria.

"Rather, he and roughly 100 others had to make do with a 'blacks-only' cafeteria that lacked heat, running water, proper toilets, refrigeration and many other amenities.

"'I wasn't that surprised, because I already knew I wasn't allowed in there,' Mr. Michel said. 'Ever since I was there [in 1998], there was a guy who told us that one cafeteria was for whites, one was for black.'"

It gets much worse than that.
