"Québec's ambiguous historical situation as both colonizer and colonized evidently informs popular opinion and the response of the local cultural press to what was described as [Alanis] Obomsawin's biased point of view [in Kanehsatake - 270 ans de résistance], especially when she was perceived as representing Québec on the 'wrong' side of the colonial power struggle."
