Culture news: Canada continues on the path towards religious discrimination

When we look at Canada, we see a disturbing situation that could be a preview of what lies ahead for the United States. Quebec is considering the "Quebec Charter of Values."  It would:

"ban public employees from wearing religious symbols, including such things as turbans, crucifixes, hijabs, and kippas. And it’s not just for government representatives: it would apply to all public institutions, including schools and hospitals. That’s right: teachers, doctors, and nurses, among numerous other workers, would all be forbidden from wearing religious symbols on the job. Don’t like it? Find another job."
