MAYOR BOWMAN STATEMENT ON QUEBEC GOVERNMENT’S PASSAGE OF BILL 62
WINNIPEG - Mayor Brian Bowman provided the following statement in response to Quebec enacting Bill 62, An Act to Foster Adherence to State Religious Neutrality earlier this week:
Winnipeg was built upon and continues to welcome people from all cultures and backgrounds. Winnipeggers are proud of their diversity and it is one of the strongest things that make up our identity as a community.
I am appalled that in any Canadian province or city in Canada, there would be built-in discrimination that infringes on the rights of any one specific gender, religion or culture. I support our provincial government in taking a firm stance in opposition to the position taken by the Quebec government.
-Mayor Brian Bowman
