Anyone receiving Quebec public services will need face uncovered as PQ reveals charter
The Quebec government has released its proposals for a controversial “values charter” aimed at restricting religious clothing and symbols in the public sector.
If adopted by the legislature, the plan would apply to every public servant; civil authorities like judges, police, and prosecutors; public daycare workers; teachers and school employees; hospital workers; and municipal personnel.
“The state must be neutral because it must show the same respect for all religions — regardless of their beliefs,” said the minister responsible, Bernard Drainville. (Image: nosvaleurs.gouv.qc.ca)
