In an interview with Radio-Canada on Wednesday, Mourani said Quebec's charter of values was a political miscalculation on the part of Premier Pauline Marois.
On Tuesday, the Quebec government unveiled a proposed charter of values that would see public employees banned from wearing religious symbols such kippas, turbans, burkas, hijabs and "large" crosses.
The federal government has vowed to challenge the proposed charter of values if it violates the rights of Canadians.
"If it's determined that a prospective law violates the constitutional protections to freedom of religion to which all Canadians are entitled, we will defend those rights vigorously," Kenney told reporters Tuesday.
