The recently approved Quebec law prohibiting public servants from wearing religious symbols has drawn a lot of backlash.

The law bans people like teachers, police officers, lawyers, and other people in positions of power from wearing religious symbols, like headscarves and crosses, to work.

One major critic of the law is Premier Brian Pallister, who is inviting civil servants concerned about the law, to come work in Manitoba.

Pallister says the province has a shortage of bilingual civil servants and will reach out to public-sector workers in Quebec by sending letters to professional organizations, colleges, and training centres.
