Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard said he isn't sure if the government will appeal a judge's ruling overturning a controversial law banning Muslim women from wearing face covering while receiving city services.
A Quebec Superior Court ruled on Thursday that the portion of Bill 62 violated the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, just days before the law was to come into effect.
Justice Marc-Andre Blanchard specifically cited Section 10 of the legislation, saying it violated the charter's principles for freedom of conscience and religion.
He said that the harm to Muslim women would be irrepairable.
Couillard, who is on a trip to New York, said he would wait for legal opinions before deciding whether to appeal.
