"We can have our Religious Symbols, but you can't have yours."

"How is the CAQ any different than the PQ", the voice of nagging doubt inside me asks.

Then want to get rid of religious symbols in schools and courts but it's OK in the National Assembly. [huh]

That's exactly my confusion.

Edit: And they are unlikely to get rid of it in the courts. I've read commentary that they have no authority to tell anyone in the Judicial Branch what they can wear or do.

The quote on the radio today from Couillard was that the crucifix is not a religious symbol, it’s an historical symbol,because Quebec was founded by Christians. So basically religion would be banned frim public service, but with an exemption for Christianity.
