Quebec’s minority separatist government has laid out its plans to crack down on religious accommodation in that province.
That means public sector employees will not be allowed to wear the Sikh turban, the Muslim hijab, the Jewish yarmulke, or a large Christian crucifix.
What’s a little odd here is the crucifix hanging over the Quebec National Assembly will remain.
There are exemptions, for example, small jewelry like the Star of David or a crucifix would be allowed.
How they will police this is beyond me. Will there be a government agent measuring all religious garb?
I’m not a religious person but I do believe in your personal right to believe in what you wish within the law.
You’d think Quebec would be working on jobs, education, health care, corruption and stopping the mass exodus of people and business leaving the province instead of religion?
Some have said this whole exercise is to infuriate the rest of Canada creating a fight so separatists can say, ‘See, Canada doesn’t like us’
What they fail to recognize is the rest of Canada gave up caring about the separatists long ago.
Kind of like that embarrassing cousin at the family reunion you just shake your head at.
Further proof Quebec separatists are un-inclusive and really just fearful racists, in a political disguise.
