Fine for organizers of Catholic Mass

Peter Stockland

Peter Stockland blogs about the fine imposed by the borough of Lachine on the organizers of the 2009 Beginning Day for holding a Catholic Mass in the borough building. "By so doing, they had broken a bylaw that prohibits “cultic” activity such as praying, singing religious songs, or conducting religious celebrations".

Update: The hearing has been held over until February 22, 2012 to allow more time for the submission of constitutional arguments.
