I thought the charter had language stipulating it is above all other laws:hugh_da_man wrote: ↑Oct 24th, 2017 2:00 pmI thought the Quebec charter was worthless? Can't they except anything from the charter just by saying it is in the legislation?
There are probably 7 or 8 can't lose seats in the Montreal area. The rest of Quebec is up for grabs and this legislation is still polling north of 70% support so taking a position against it can't help.
62 will be around for years and it's only going to get worse. Next October is the Quebec provincial election and this will be a central issue. I don't see how that won't linger into the 2019 election.
52. Aucune disposition d’une loi, même postérieure à la Charte, ne peut déroger aux articles 1 à 38, sauf dans la mesure prévue par ces articles, à moins que cette loi n’énonce expressément que cette disposition s’applique malgré la Charte.
I think the way out is the part of bill 62 that allows exemptions based on religion, if someone requests it. The application is somewhat nebulous though. Do you need to carry "concealed face" permit with you?
