Bus driver could face disciplinary action after support for Bill 62 protest

A Montreal city bus driver who showed support for protesters denouncing Quebec’s new religious neutrality law could face disciplinary action, a spokesperson for the city’s public transit agency has confirmed.

A driver was seen and heard honking and covering his face during a protest against the new law, known as Bill 62, on Friday morning.

Dozens of protesters wearing surgical masks and scarves lined up along the 80 bus route on Parc Avenue in Montreal to denounce the law, which they say targets Muslim women who wear the niqab.

Context: Bill 62 bars public-sector employees from covering their faces and obliges citizens to uncover their faces to receive public services, including when taking public transportation.

100 Affected: 100 Quebec citizens expected to be affected by the ban on the Niqab.
