Un débat sur un «Québec laïque» dérape | Le Devoir

For those interested, a good sense of some of the polarization and tensions in debates over the Quebec charter. Not surprising given some of the personalities involved: Djemila Benhabib, fervente militante contre le fondamentalisme musulman, Paul de Bellefeuille, vice-président du Syndicat de la fonction publique et parapublique du Québec, qui s’est prononcé en faveur de la charte de la laïcité, Alexa Conradi, la présidente de la Fédération des femmes du Québec (FFQ), et d’Amir Khadir, député de Québec solidaire.

The article is on the breakdown of civilized debate, not on the substance of what was debated.
