Students and teachers of Westmount High have made a video teaching Premier Marois some lessons in Quebec values.
"It's important to stand up for what I believe in and I think the Charter of Values is wrong, it’s taking away people's rights and freedoms," Jaylen Paris, a grade 10 student who helped with the video said.
Since September, teachers, students and some parents, have been holding weekly protests against the Charter.
With the cold weather, they've taken their efforts inside to create a bilingual video telling Marois that her secularism charter goes against the charter of rights.
“They need to see this and think about what it is they’re doing and how it’s affecting communities like Westmount High, where we have teachers and students who wear hijabs and kipas. This is not only about these people today, but also about their futures,” Robert Green, the teacher who’s been leading the project said.
“How are we supposed to be saying, just believe in yourself and you could do anything when the government is sending this kind of message back,” Green said.
“Quebec is extremely diverse and it’s very unfair to take away this right, there are a lot of people who’s futures are going to be affected,” Ariana Da Cunha, another grade 11 student in the video said.
The EMSB has shown its support. During the bill 60 hearings it said it would defy the charter and called it a bullying tactic.
When asked about the video, Marois said that the PQ's charter does not go against the charter of human rights.
