Province-Wide 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 province-wide 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 December 11, 2007, hearing in Montreal, Que., includes briefs from Diane Joyale (president of the Association des parents catholiques du Québec), Gilles Duceppe (leader of the Bloc Québécois), and Farida Mohamed (representative for the Association des femmes musulmanes de Québec), among others.
