MONTREAL, May 17, 2011 – Beginning May 18, 2011 the judges of the Supreme Court of Canada hear the case of the Drummondville, Que. family seeking an exemption from Quebec’s program in ethics and religious culture (ECR). Lawyers Mark Phillips and Guy Pratte will appear on the family’s behalf.
Several speakers will argue that the program and its implementation are at odds with the fundamental right of parents to direct the religious education of their children.
