Video starring Quebec front-line workers compares COVID-19 to racism

Titled Je Me Souviendrai, the video draws a comparison between COVID-19 and racism as the workers describe a foreign threat, one that has taken jobs and left people afraid.

The video's maker, Fabrice Vil, said on Facebook he created it “to fight racism and value ethno-cultural diversity by praising the efforts of workers in essential services.”
The video was inspired by a similar work made in the United Kingdom called You Clap For Me Now.
