Say show who you are; don’t hide it
On September 3, 2013 the Globe and Mail reported that Mayor Naheed Nenshi of Calgary, Alberta stated Quebec’s Charter of Values was “social suicide” and “intolerance”. Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne told reporters “It’s very important to me that Ontario is a diverse province, that our laws and our policies reflect that diversity.” Today students at York University support them.
A group of students that have formed an organization known as “Free to Be” have been seen canvassing on campus, gathering signatures and promoting an online petition on Change.org to show the Quebec National Assembly their opposition to Bill 60, the Secular Charter or Charter of Values.
As part of their campaign they’ve been posting pictures of students wearing religious garments on a Facebook page.
