Quebec Superior Court Upholds Public Service Dress Code

Judge decides against issuing injunction.

A push by the National Council of Canadian Muslims and the Canadian Civil Liberties Association to block the public service dress code has been rejected.

A judge at the Quebec Superior Court ruled against issuing an injunction, pointing out that the law had been passed by the legislature and it would be odd for a court to block it.

The legislation sets restrictions on religious garb being worn by taxpayer-funded public servants. For example, someone wearing a Niqab or Burka would would be required to remove it.

While the establishment media and establishment politicians have criticized the legislation, it is highly popular in Quebec, and polls have shown that similar legislation commands majority support in every Canadian province.
