Kathy Shaidle puts it best: “Life really is so simple: 1. Separate already 2. Stay home with your kids and feed ’em your own damn self 3. Go back where you came from 4. ‘Panels’ must die.”
“Quebec day-care lunch menu discriminates: panel,” from Canadian Press:
MONTREAL — The ongoing debate in Quebec over accommodation of religious minorities has flared up again over a day-care lunch menu.
A day-care centre in the east end of Montreal is taking issue with a human rights commission ruling suggesting it not serve meat to a Muslim child, in accordance with Islamic dietary rules.
Lawyers for the publicly funded day care say staff were asked to remove pork from the lunchtime menu and serve the Muslim child only halal meat — actions they won’t take.
But Quebec’s human rights commission says it never asked the day care to make such accommodations.
It says the parents simply wanted their child not to be served any meals with meat, as the day care does for another child who is allergic….
The case will now go before a human rights tribunal.
