Quebec's new immigration and religious symbols laws we will lobby the next government to make them National Federal laws. These laws are fair and logical.
What's in the new laws?
The new secularism law, once known as Bill 21, makes it illegal to wear religious symbols at work if you're a public school teacher, a police officer, a judge, a prison guard, a wildlife officer, a Crown prosecutor or if you work as a lawyer for the government. It applies to other jobs too.
The legislation also lays out the rules requiring citizens to uncover their faces to receive a public service for identification or security purposes.
The immigration law, tabled as Bill 9, allows the government to throw out a backlog of roughly 16,000 skilled immigrant worker applications as the province moves toward a new, merit-based application system.
It also lays the groundwork for a Quebec values test that would-be immigrants will need to pass in order to become a permanent resident.
