Quinte Secular Humanist Association Supports The Quebec Charter of Values

OTTAWA, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 04/04/14 -- The Quinte Secular Humanist Association and Secular Ontario are affirming their support of the Quebec Government's initiative to promote the Charter "affirming the values of State secularism and religious neutrality and of equality between women and men and providing the framework for accommodation requests".

In a recent letter to M. Bernard Drainville, Minister Responsible for Democratic Institutions and Active Citizenship, Secular Ontario applauded the proposed legislation whose aim is to continue the secularization of Quebec. With regards to the religious proselytizing symbols, their removal from the civic space is extending fairness to all citizens.

Quinte Secular Humanist Association is announcing a similar note of support has been submitted to M. Drainville. The QSHA position highlights the Legislation's intent to help the development of a secular separation of "church and state" in Quebec and in Canada.
