Nativity scene removed from Montreal-area town hall
by Christine Bouthillier
A posh Montreal suburb has decided to remove a nativity scene and menorah from town hall rather than acquiesce to demands from a Muslim group to erect Islamic religious symbols.
The decision by the Town of Mount Royal upsets a Christian resident who says the town is abandoning an established tradition under pressure from a tiny religious minority.
Town councillors of several different religions unanimously decided to remove the Christian and Jewish items.
