Montreal - Monday, February 4, 2019

An emergency meeting of the English Montreal School Board’s Human Resources Committee will be held on Wednesday, February 6 at 6000 Fielding Avenue in NDG, with a portion open to the public at 7:15 pm to seek their input on the provincial government’s proposed law prohibiting civil servants — including teachers, judges, police officers and prosecutors— from wearing religious symbols in the workplace.

Commissioner Julien Feldman, the chair of the EMSB Human Resources Committee, said that he is inviting anyone who would like to share their thoughts on this subject to do so during this meeting.

The EMSB Council of Commissioners strongly opposed the former Parti québécois’ proposed Charter of Values, adopting a resolution that it had no intention to comply with the law. 

Mr. Feldman said that this feedback will provide important information for an EMSB action plan on the proposed legislation.
