Panel to discuss future of religious expression

Bill 21, Quebec’s ban on religious symbols in the public sector, has prompted questions regarding the future of religious expression in Canada.

A panel of four from different backgrounds will share their thoughts on the subject in a free public discussion entitled “Are limits on religious expression becoming a trend in Canada?” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 5, at the Signature Tributes Event Centre, 3310 Dougall Ave.

The panel will include:

  • law student Lina Chaker, a board member of the Windsor Islamic Association;
  • Richard Moon, a law professor whose research focuses on freedom of expression, conscience, and religion;
  • Rachel Olivero, equity and inclusion officer at the Greater Essex County District School Board; and
  • Jasdeep Singh, a member of Windsor’s Sikh community.

The event is sponsored by Assumption University’s Stephen Jarislowsky Chair in Religion and Conflict.
