Quebec government pictogram displaying which religious symbols would be allowed under the Charter of Quebec Values

Cote Saint-Luc Mayor Anthony Housefather stated at last night’s public council meeting that once we have seen the actual bill, which has yet to be tabled, we will play a leadership role and will respond to the specifics and strongly oppose any attempt to infringe upon the liberties of any faith practiced by any Cote Saint-Lucer or any Quebecer.

I will stand shoulder to shoulder with Mayor Housefather and members of Council to oppose such an unconscionable and despicable proposal launched by Pauline Marois’ Parti Quebecois government.

Once again, Quebec will be the laughingstock of international media. This negative perception does nothing to boost tourism, business or our lagging economy and standard of living.

Cote Saint-Luc should be an example of tolerance and respect regardless of one’s language, religion or culture. I will proudly speak out against any discrimination by the government and hope that you will too.
