More than 25,000 comments have been posted online since the Parti Québécois unveiled its proposed charter of Quebec values.

A leak in August and the proposed charter's official release in early September ignited a firestorm of criticism, with politicians at all levels speaking out against it.

While the debate on reasonable accommodations is still raging in Quebec, some have come out in favour of the charter.

Its architect, Bernard Drainville, on Tuesday is releasing a summary of the comments, both for and against the charter. He insists the report will be unbiased.

Public-sector workers would not be permitted to wear overt religious symbols while at work under the proposed charter.
