Experts: Secularism Bill 21

Published: 8 May 2019

Legislative hearings into Quebec's secularism bill started yesterday and will run until May 16. Here's an expert from McGill University that can provide comment on that issue:

Robert Leckey, Professor, Faculty of Law, McGill University

"The provincial government is ploughing ahead with its proposed law regarding secularism. But a large-scale violation of human rights, protected by the Canadian Charter’s notwithstanding clause, should have a credible, broad-based legislative process — not the hurried, unrepresentative hearings that opened yesterday in Quebec City."—Robert Leckey

Robert Leckey is a full professor at the Faculty of Law, where he teaches constitutional law and family law.
