Wow, I need a teeth check, whatever language...
At least she hasn't been kicked out of Mtl or from the country, like the Mohawks are currently trying to do in Kahnawake (near Montreal). If you're a white man living there, they want you to pack your bags & get out. Even if you're married to a native woman & have kids, you can't stay there.

Some critics have went so far as comparing the situation to early Nazi-era Germany.
