Total number of complaints about "ostentatious" religious symbols in Montreal: 0

Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre was ahead of the curve when he announced during the election campaign that he would oppose any push to adopt the Charter of Values.

Coderre says there has never been a problem in Montreal.

This morning's Journal de Montreal, publishes the numbers to back him up.

Not one complaint has ever been filed about a city employee, blue or white collar,  about wearing a kippa, veil,turban or any other so-called ostentatious religious symbol.

The figures looked at the years 2010, 2011 and 2012 and not one complaint was registered.

Internally, a city security guard had to fight to win the right to reject Sunday shifts because of his Christain faith.

    IF and only IF the security guard is truly going to church every Sunday; then he should be allowed to refuse those shifts. The same goes for any person who has a religious ceremony on a weekly (or any other time scale) basis. But if they aren't actually going to the ceremony then they shouldn't be allowed to have the day off.

    And in comparison, how many complaints against the pq and their cohorts. As for the Christian worker, there is such a thing as Saturday mass, or work Sunday afternoons.
