Protestants blocked from Quebec religious symbol ban discussions

MONTREAL — Quebec’s largest Protestant umbrella group accused the Parti Quebecois of shutting it out of consultations on the controversial secularism charter.

The Protestant Partnership, whose 1,000 member churches represent 400,000 people, was told not to show up to the legislature hearings into the so-called charter of Quebec values.

The most contentious part of the secularism charter is a ban on conspicuous religious symbols in the public service.
