    Quebec’s Superior Court is upholding most of the province’s secularism law, known as Bill 21, which includes a ban on religious symbols worn by government workers.

    Quebec’s secularism law is largely legal, the court ruled Tuesday, even as he acknowledged it violates the rights of Muslim women and has cruel and dehumanizing consequences for those who wear religious symbols.

    In a 240-page ruling, Blanchard concluded that the law, known as Bill 21 “does not violate the Canadian constitutional architecture.”

    Mike Armstrong explains which parts of the controversial law were struck down.
