Public Hearings on Accommodation Practices – Montreal, Que.

The Consultation Commission on Accommodation Practices Related to Cultural Differences (the “Bouchard–Taylor Commission”) was established in February 2007 by Quebec Premier Jean Charest. The public consultation program includes a number of public hearings focusing on issues relating to the protection of ethno-cultural minority rights while also respecting the rights of larger demographics within Quebec.

This November 28, 2007, hearing in Montreal, Que., includes briefs and testimonials from Roxane de la Sablonnière (Université de Montréal), Samantha Lee Quinn (South Asian Women’s Community Centre), Marc Sougavinski (CSSS de la Montagne), and also from various citizens speaking as individuals.
