Thank God small crosses would still be allowed, and crucifix would remain on the assembly court and huge cross on Mont-Royal would remain

Quebec is aware of the Islamic radicalism in Europe. God Bless PQ Government

I'm moving to QC when I become fluent in French vive la Quebec!

Oh please. I'm not Christian. Are you saying I'm not Canadian or welcome here in my own country?

What are you talking about? I don't see Muslims burning Canadian flags or denouncing our values. I see them in my building, in my community, shopping at the malls, watching hockey games, etc, doing all of the things that Canadians typically do. When they break our laws they are punished same as everyone else. And I'm sure most of them know how it feels to be a minority, thank you very much.

And no, let's not act like other countries and persecute people based on their religious affiliations or cultural backgrounds. There are compounds in Michigan and Montana where people think this way; maybe you would be happier there?

^^Jews for Jesus is obviously using reverse psychology in an effort to drum up support for Islam whilst pretending to be pro-Christian.

Honestly this kind of double standard with regards to religion makes me sick. I'm a Christian, but I don't think it's fair to discriminate against other people just because they're not. Religion symbols shouldn't be confined to certain places deemed "appropriate". That kind of state of mind is authoritarian and has no place in a democratic society like Canada.

You are false Christian who accept Christian persecution by tolerating the intolerant. You need to start defending your faith!
Jews have killed your Christ, and Muslims kill Christians in the Middle East and destroy churches, yet you want them to live like kings in Canada.

Will the Canadian Charter of rights and freedoms suffice?.
Constitution Acts, 1867 to 1982

From the Charter:

Quote:
52. (1) The Constitution of Canada is the supreme law of Canada, and any law that is inconsistent with the provisions of the Constitution is, to the extent of the inconsistency, of no force or effect.
So, prima facie, the Quebec Charter of Values would be of no force and effect, based on the religious freedoms provision of Charter s. 2(a).

That being said, Quebec could use the Notwithstanding Clause (s. 33 of the Charter) to opt out of the religious freedoms clause (s. 2 (a) of the Charter). So it is possible that if Quebec passes its proposed Charter and uses s. 33 to opt out, the Charter of Quebec Values could become law.

Whether it does or not, seems to be yet to be decided. We'll just have to wait and see what happens.
