Fighting Bill 21 = disrespect?

François Legault says the federal government’s intention to challenge Quebec’s secularity bill, aka Bill 21, to the Supreme Court, amounts to a lack of respect for Quebecers.

Don’t we arrive at our laws by a gradual process of challenge, defense and debate? The secularity bill may be Legault’s pet project, but now that it’s been upheld by the Quebec Court of Appeal, it seems inevitable that the Supremes will be asked to rule on it. This isn’t disrespect – if anything, it’s the reverse.
