Marois says multiculturalism led to bombings in England
Quebec's premier had told a French-language newspaper that England's model of multiculturalism has led to bombings.
Pauline Marois told Le Devoir that while the French model was not perfect, "in England, they are punching each other and throwing bombs because its multiculturalism, and no one there sees themselves in that society."
Marois also said a daycare worker wearing a hijab carries a connotation of submission and may try to induce children to practice her religion.
Where is Calgary?
At the same time, Calgary's mayor Naheed Nenshi is continuing his criticism against the PQ leader and her policy.
He told CJAD that when he met Marois, he was struck by the premier's lack of knowledge about his city.
"I met her once and it was interesting because it wasn't clear to me that she knew where Calgary was," he said.
Nenshi also said he would continue to speak out against plans to ban religious headgear, even if it leads to a dispute between English Canada and Quebec.
"The important thing is standing up for what's right."
