Once bill 101 was passed, public service workers that did not speak French in many cases were forced to leave their jobs. For many of us who were schooled in English in Quebec, learning a second language late in life is extremely difficult, so as a result of bill 101, many non-bilingual public service workers were forced out of their jobs. It resulted in lots of folks being denied their livelihood because of new language laws.
The Quebec Values Charter does not appear to be as discriminatory as bill 101. It does discriminate based on religious/cultural background, however folks will not lose their jobs as a result. Many who work for the state knew that their work was secular in nature when they first accepted the job, and they likely signed paperwork acknowledging this. Also, removing a religious symbol prior to starting work is nowhere near as hard as trying to learn a new foreign language. There is no comparison. Those folks who started working for the state prior to the separation of church and state, would have a valid argument here.
So in summary, since bill 101 did pass back in 1977, and it appears to be far more discriminatory than the Quebec Values Charter, I'm betting that the new Charter will pass as well.
