Quebec Liberal leader Philippe Couillard says if they are elected to power, he'd make public the PQ legal opinions on the proposed secular charter.
But Couillard insists they'd be a moot point since they would not be adopting the more contentious and discriminatory parts of the legislation.
"We're going to legislate on the other portions on which everybody agrees: covered faces, accomodations being defined, neutrality of the state in the charter, protection of our history and our (heritage). This doesn't need any legal opinion," Couillard told reporters at a whistlestop in St-Jerôme.
The PQ government has refused to release the legal opinions it got on the charter.
Couillard said what the legal opinions may show is why PQ leader Pauline Marois would resort to using the notwithstanding clause to protect the charter.
Couillard said they only had "informal consultations with legal experts" on the charter, showing they'd need to introduce legislation to address certain issues.
"When one wants to violate rights and freedoms, it has to involve concrete and major consequences and the solution has to be proportional. In our case, the answer shows that it's totally disproportional," Couillard said, referring to the controversial parts of the charter.
