SHERBROOKE, December 13, 2013 – Townshippers’ Association has filed a brief strongly urging the Quebec National Assembly to withdraw Bill 60 from consideration calling the document an assault on every value that affirms individual rights and freedoms.

Townshippers’ Association President Gerald Cutting expressed opposition to any policy that aims to divide communities and undermine civil liberties, “for anyone who really believes in the definition of freedom, the only response to this bill can be a resounding no.”

In the six-page brief, Townshippers’ questions the sinister purpose and rationale behind the proposed legislation noting that the measures outlined in bill 60 virtually guarantee a giant step backward for minorities in general, and women of the Muslim faith in particular.
