Quebec Charter of Values
Transcript of Quebec Charter of Values
These Are some important details to my argument
That doesn't seem right, right?
The Important Details
The important details are basically the Pros to the bill
What about Freedom of expression?
Many people will and are arguing the current state of the Charter of Values. A Leger poll released Monday shows 43 percent support the Charter, while 42 percent oppose the measure and 16 percent have no opinion. The bill in my eyes will not pass in its current form. But the idea of more strict rules around religious neutrality in the public sector is something that could come with a positive outcome.
In 2008, the Quebec Charter of Rights and Freedoms has been amended to explicitly mention equality between men and women.
The state or quality of being equal; correspondence in quantity, degree, value, rank, or ability
Secularism is secular spirit or tendency, especially a system of political or social philosophy that rejects all forms of religious faith and worship. In other words it refers to the view that human activities and choices especially political ones, should be unbiased by religious influence.
Here's a Quote
“There are also civil liberties that are extremely important, but they’re not on the same level. Freedom of expression and freedom of religion are another thing. They are civil liberties that can be reduced by what is reasonable in a free and democratic society.” said L’Heureux-Dubé a retired judge
What about it?
The Charter does not take away freedom of religion and expression it simply states that wile representing the province of Quebec all religious symbols should be removed to keep the image of a neutral state. It is not taking away your freedom of expression in peoples everyday life. Quebecois still have the ability to express there faith under there own time and freewill. When you're working for the government you have the duty to represent it in the way they want to be represented. Religious neutrality in the public sector
Based on Jim Harvey's speech structures
The Charter would impose a career-or-faith dilemma on judges, police, and prosecutors; public daycare workers; teachers and school employees; hospital workers; municipal personnel; and employees at state-run liquor stores and the auto-insurance board.
How do you feel about that Curtis?
In my belief I think that trimming the bill down to focus only on specific employee's of the state like police officers, judges, and people in authority positions would make a lot more sense.
What is it?
The Charter of Values would forbid all public employees from wearing “overt and conspicuous” religious symbols and headgear. This includes Muslin face veils, Jewish yarmulkes, or large crucifixes amongst others.
Why is it Relevant?
The Quebec Charter of Values could potentially conflict with the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The biggest part of that would be freedom of religion and expression.
In Other Words
The downfall or " Con" is that the bill shouldn't include all public servants. Only the ones in authority positions.
Looking at employee's with authority, someone who is expressing there religion in bold ways can play an effect on how people look at you. The combination of religions wile in a hostile environment like a court room for example; can put even more tension on the some individuals. This could also lead people to believe that there might have been a bias in the making of the decision of the case. This could create a lot controversy towards racism and equality.
Representing the State
Looking at equality between men and women and how Quebec supports it, and looking at a lot of religious organizations, and think are they one-hundred percent non-discriminatory? Are they one-hundred percent altruistic? They are most definitely not, and to be advertising, and supporting those beliefs on the governments front line is not the way Quebec wants to be portrayed, and that is exactly what wearing these religious symbols do.
Neutrality is the absence of decided views, expression, or strong feeling.
