Lewis calls Bill 21 'religious discrimination,' Poilievre hopes Quebec repeals law

CP24: 'Conservative leadership contender and rookie MP Leslyn Lewis on Monday called a Quebec law restricting public servants in positions of authority from wearing religious symbols at work “explicit religious discrimination.”

'Lewis, who is running for the leadership a second time after placing third in the party's 2020 race, says Conservatives must make decisions “based on principle” and not how it will be viewed by a particular demographic.

'“Even making the right decision for purely political purposes is wrong. While I respect provincial jurisdiction, Bill 21 is explicit religious discrimination and as leader of our party, I will always defend religious freedom,” reads a statement made Monday.

'Her stance on Quebec's controversial secularism law, known by its legislative title of Bill 21, comes as other candidates have staked out their positions on the matter.'
