quebec solidaire: The Parti Quebecois also voted in favour, while the Liberals and Quebec solidaire were opposed, according to CTV. The bill prohibits public servants in positions of authority from wearing religious symbols on the job. Premier Francois Legault's government used its majority to push through Bill 21 by a vote of 73 to 35 after applying the mechanism of closure to end debate on the bill prematurely. Its opponents say the law targets religious minorities while the government argues it affirms the Quebecois people's secular identity. Liberal member Marc Tanguay said the changes would result in a secularism police. The Coalition Avenir Quebec government introduced last-minute amendments toughening the law, making provisions for a minister to verify that it is being obeyed and to demand corrective measures if necessary.
