Secular 'values' charter hearings continue for second week

The public hearings on Quebec's proposed secular charter continue today for a second week.

The day will start of with a presentation from pro-charter advocate Rakia Fourati, who is a member of les Janettes, a group founded by the influential author, radio and TV personality, Janette Bertrand.

Fourati will be followed by the Quebec secular movement. The movement was in the news last week after the Supreme Court of Canada agreed to hear its challenge against officials having the right to recite a prayer at Saguenay city council meetings.

The morning session is expected to wrap up with the Alliance of cultural communities for equality in health and social services.
