UQAM Rector speaks out against Charter

The University of Quebec at Montreal has joined the growing list of francophone universities opposed to the proposed Charter of Values.

UQAM Rector Robert Proulx says Bill 60 would create inequities and goes against the basic principle of academic freedom.

Proulx says institutions such as his support the principle of secularism in public institutions, but he says the Charter targets religious symbols and freedom of expression.
and threatens freedom of conscience and academic freedom.

He'll make UQAM's stance official at the parliamentary hearings into Bill 60 next month.
