    An impact

    “We are talking about approximately 2000 references in the media. There are even places in the world where it was presented as a suprémacisme white. It made me a little smile because that one is not here “, explained Jean-François Dumas, president of Influence Communication, which monitors and analyses 160 countries around the world.

    According to Mr. Dumas, the slaughter of the mosque has not damaged the image of tourism of Quebec. “In reporting on the tourism in Quebec city, nobody refers to Alexandre Bissonnette. For us, it is a relevant element of media monitoring. “
