TL;DR A Montreal Group is organizing a protest against the CAQ's proposed religious symbol ban. The demonstration is Sunday 3-6pm at Place-des-Arts.
These people are public school administrator, SAAQ employees, or even doctors at the local CLSC – just to name a few – that choose to wear religious symbols such as kippas or hijabs.
