Quebec Liberal leader Philippe Couillard unveiled his party's detailed position on the secularism charter Tuesday.
He says anyone who asks for an accomodation — a special room to pray, or special arrangements in a cafeteria — has to show that they have also made an effort to integrate.
"There has to be a reciprocal effort," Couillard says. "When I talk to Quebecers, they say 'yes, we are open, yes we are inclusive', but they have a feeling that accomodation always goes the same way. It's always us that makes the effort."
His party would also keep the crucifix in the National Assembly.
It would ban civil servants from wearing the burqua, the niqab, and the chador.
When it comes to police officers, prison guards, and judges, the Liberals say any request to wear religious attire would have to be okayed by a competant authority.
The person making the request would also have to show the need to wear the item.
