Even though there has been a massive public outcry, not only in Quebec but also nationally - and even with the English Montreal School Board, one of the largest teacher's union in Quebec, ready to file a legal challenge against it and who just yesterday announced they will not adhere to the ban, Premier of Francois Legault and his CAQ government have tabled Bill 21 today that would ban numerous provinces workers from wearing religious symbols.

Quebec Premier Francois Legault promised to deliver a religious symbols ban in the run-up to last fall's provincial election. President of World Sikh Organization of Canada, Mukhbir Singh told TOI on Friday "we are deeply disappointed that the Coalition Avenir Québec government has introduced legislation banning the wearing of religious clothing and symbols in Quebec".

The Liberals, who are in opposition in Quebec now, insisted that the proposal was too extreme, while the country's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was also among those who criticised the plan.
