Private daycare association flooded by threats for charter stance
The President of the Quebec association of subsidized private daycare centres called the police Thursday after being flooded with hate mail for its recent denunciation of the proposed Charter of Values.
Sylvain Lévesque says the last straw came yesterday when he received one of the caustic e-mails in his personal e-mail account.
Lévesque says he called 911 as a precaution because of the climate of fear that has now been created among some daycare workers.
He says the debate is getting out of hand and he's starting to fear for the safety of his colleagues.
Lévesque criticized the Charter in the early days of its release and said no daycare employee would ever be forced to remove their veil or face the prospect of being fired for wearing headcovering.
