Vaillancourt and Campos on regulation of religion in Quebec

In Quebec Studies, Fall/Winter 2011, an article by Jean-Guy Vaillancourt and Elisabeth Campos, "The Regulation of Religious Diversity in Québec."

Here's the abstract:

The article considers the twentieth century Western movement towards secularization and religious fragmentation, focusing on Québec, Canada's efforts to legislate religion. Some of the legislation and case law considered include the 1975 Québec Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms, the 1982 Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and both Canada's Criminal and Civil codes. The article also considers legal topics dealing with religious pluralism, the notion of reasonable accommodation, multiculturalism, and the protection of minorities against the hegemony of the majority.
