PQ minister’s advice for religious minorities: Accept Quebec values - The Globe and Mail
A Parti Québécois minister has advice for religious minorities who may have to choose between a spiritual symbol and a job, with the Quebec government’s plan to limit religious dress in public sector workplaces: Set the panther skull aside.
Mr. Kotto, 51, is one of the rare members of a visible minority in the PQ caucus. His view was highly sought on the fractious debate on a dress code that would ban symbols such as the hijab, the turban, large crucifixes, and, presumably, the animist totem that belongs to his family in Africa.
“When people arrive in a new family, the least we can do is to consider the values of the family and accept their values.”
