Crucifix restored to wall of Quebec City hospital after thousands object to its removal

A crucifix has been returned to the wall of a Quebec City hospital after an earlier decision to take it down prompted complaints, a petition and what officials considered a “serious threat.”

The cross, which is just under a metre in length, was put back overnight in its original spot, between two elevators near the entrance of the Saint-Sacrement Hospital.

    Good.

      As Quebecers use to say: “A la prochaine”.

  • Couillard insists that this was done for “religious neutrality”.

    • Martin B

      The name Saint-Sacrement doesn’t sound very neutral to me. If Couillard is that gung-ho, I’m surprised he didn’t order the hospital to change its name.

    I bet there is a mini-mosque in the Hospital.

      Of course. Who do you think complained?

    According to news reports in the francophone media, the cross was removed after “someone” complained.

    There was ONE anonymous complaint and so the crucifix just HAD to removed.

    Like… couldn’t they have complained about slippery sidewalks or something instead?

    I’m glad people reacted with such vigor and had it put back.
