A Quebec Superior Court judge will issue a ruling later this morning on whether the province’s controversial ban on religious symbols is constitutional.
The ruling, which is expected to be made public around 9 a.m., comes roughly a year and a half after the Coalition Avenir Québec government passed Bill 21, which bans some civil servants from wearing religious symbols at work.
