Protests in Montreal over proposed religious garb ban
Thousands of mostly Muslim protesters took to the street in Montreal to express anger at a plan to ban public sector workers from wearing religious garb in Quebec.
The prohibition of headscarves, turbans and other religious garments is part of a proposed overhaul of the Canadian province's "Charter of Values."
"No to the charter," the demonstrators shouted, while also chanting "Quebec is not France," -- a reference to a similar law which has been in force in that country for more than two years.
