Jean Charest "very worried" in the wake of values charter

Says Bill 60 is divisive

Another former Quebec premier is expressing concerns about the proposed values charter.

According to La Presse, Jean Charest tells international business magazine, Global Brief, the PQ government created the religious ban to boost its own popularity.

He's reported saying the charter is divisive and that he's very worried about it.

Charest, a lawyer by profession who was defeated in the 2012 election, now works at the law firm of McCarthy-Tetrault.

Former PQ premiers Jacques Parizeau and and Bernard Landry have also come out against Bill 60.
