« Unthinkable. » That’s how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau reacted when Quebec tabled a law that would ban religious symbols and clothing for its teachers, judges, police officers and other public sector workers.

He pledged to « defend the rights of Canadians » against the proposed ban. His minister of justice repeatedly called the bill « unacceptable » and alluded to « next steps » once it became law.
