Federal Leaders Get an F on Defending Religious Freedom

B.C. Catholic

Federal political leaders fail to protect Canadians’ rights by staying out of Quebec’s secularism law, Bill 21, says Father Deacon Andrew Bennett, program director for religious freedom and faith community engagement at the faith-based think tank Cardus. 

“Religious freedom is not just any freedom,” Father Deacon Andrew Bennett told Canadian Catholic News. “It is one of the fundamental freedoms.” If politicians won’t speak out against the law during a federal election, he wonders when they will stand up for religious freedom.
