First, Francophones in Quebec are not French, they are Quebecois.
Second, after three years of living in Montreal I can personally attest that many of the old-guard Quiet Revolution Quebecois *are* racist. The language laws they enacted are ample proof of this.

if she'd been "pur laine", the cop would likely have laughed and sent her on her way.

? if openly racist police policy is practiced in other parts of Canada, the federal government takes an interest. Why is Quebec exempt?

We really are okay folks without a 'culture-killing' bone in our bodies, and yet friends of mine have returned from Montreal with the odd horror stories of getting yelled at by a clerk at a Burger King, or threatened by strangers on the street. We read stories of those living in Quebec who want to send their kids to an English school but because they're French aren't allowed. Or my husband not being able to get a copy of his birth certificate from a federally funded hospital because they refuse to speak English on the phone.
