I am writing about Quebec’s new religious neutrality law - Bill 62. Why am I not at all surprised by the Quebec government’s blatant hypocrisy? It’s because I am used to the police state we call Quebec where so many aspects of daily life are controlled by laws non-existent anywhere else in Canada. Whether or not I agree with anyone wearing any face covering is not the issue here. It’s the fact that you had the audacity to pass this law in plain sight of the crucifix which hangs over the speaker’s chair in the National Assembly, yet you claim it is for religious neutrality!
What could be a less neutral religious symbol than that crucifix? And do I dare ask how many Quebec MNAs wear a necklace with a cross on it?
No, I am not surprised - I am disgusted!
