In this interview, he discusses at length Quebec politics and identity. He touches on xenophobia, the relationship of Catholicism with French identity, and anti-clericalism. Relevant to his research, Taylor discusses secularity as it relates to plurality and multiculturalism in Francophone institutional life notwithstanding legislation against such things as the burka. He discusses how religion is persistent and remains a force in modern life.
Finally, he makes a plea for democratic collective life as it is in danger of disappearing as a result of the neo-liberal agenda and the rise of individualism. All in all a good interview.
