Reaction to Quebec Court’s Secularism Bill Ruling

Justice Minister David Lametti and NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh speak with reporters on Parliament Hill about the Quebec Court of Appeal’s refusal to suspend the province’s secularism law. The provincial government’s law, known as Bill 21, prohibits public servants in positions of authority from wearing religious symbols. Today’s decision concerned a request for a stay of the ban until a constitutionality ruling. (December 12, 2019) (no interpretation)
