Three former MNAs call for civil discourse on discussions of secularism in open letter

Daybreak Montreal

Three former Quebec MNAs - former Liberal minister and MNA Geoffrey Kelley; former Québec solidaire MNA Françoise David; and former Parti Québécois and Independent MNA Lisette Lapointe - are calling for calm in an open letter asking the government and the Quebec population to ditch the vitriol around the religious symbols debate. They say it's wrong to call people racists who are asking legitimate questions about a secular state and equality of the sexes, and just as it is wrong to victimize Muslim women who wear the veil and accuse them of being advocates of a political Islam. We speak with former MNA and minister Geoffrey Kelley.
