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 29, 2007, hearing in Montreal, Que., includes briefs and testimonials from Xixi Li (Service à la famille chinoise du Grand Montréal), Alfred Lukhanda (Communauté Catholique Congolaise de Montréal), Élaheh Chokrai (Association des femmes iraniennes de Montréal), and also from various citizens speaking as individuals.
