Examines media reports about the expulsion of a girl from a Montreal (Quebec, Canada) high school for wearing the "hijab" (Islamic head covering or garment). Shows, using psychoanalytic concepts, how the media images created a sense of self for Montreal's Francophone and Anglophone communities. Explores the question of tolerance and the dynamics of stereotyping. (SLD)
