Napoleon’s Cartoon – Quebec Passes Secularism Law

Quebec's new law on religious symbols was rammed through the legislature on a late Sunday night by the Coalition Avenir Québec government. It will bar civil servants in positions of authority — like public school teachers, police officers and government lawyers — from wearing religious symbols while at work. "Quite simply, last night the Quebec government legalized religious discrimination," Mustafa Farooq, the head of the Muslim advocacy group, told reporters on the steps of the Montreal courthouse.

This sad little province has already legalized linguistic discrimination to appease the masses so illiberal heavy handedness is nothing new.
