Quebec argues secularism law doesn’t deny religious freedom but is ‘justified constraint’

Quebec’s attorney general argued Wednesday that the province’s state secularism law does not deny freedom of religion — rather, it frames it.

After hearing arguments against the controversial law in court for several weeks, the attorney general’s office will take the next two days to plead its constitutionality.

The piece of legislation, known as Bill 21, is being contested by several groups who want to have it struck down, in whole or in part.
