Crucifix in Montreal’s city council chambers will be removed, executive committee says

The crucifix in Montreal’s city council chambers will be removed for good.

The announcement was made during an executive committee meeting Wednesday morning.

Major renovations are about to get underway at City Hall. The crucifix is being removed for the work, but will not be put back up when work is complete in about three years, the executive committee says.

The administration says it is an opportunity to remove the crucifix, given that the city is secular.
