Muslim park observance irks some

The observance of Eid al-Adha in a park in Ahuntsic last week has ruffled some feathers. Le Devoir has a piece about how the borough ought not to have allowed Muslims to monopolize the park.

Would the same people have been so upset if it had been, say, a t’ai chi or yoga class? A meditation group? What about that Marche du pardon that happens in Montreal and other Quebec towns on Good Friday, taking up road space?
