Dr. Donald DeMarco Winner of CCRL Award

Professor DeMarco is a national Catholic treasure. His work gives witness to our faith in a world which is increasingly seeking to exclude Christian perspectives from the public square. The CCRL is delighted to recognize Don for that continued witness. He has been a great friend of the League, and we look forward to presenting him with the Exner Award this year.

The Catholic Civil Rights League (CCRL) comments on the release today by the Supreme Court of Canada (SCC) in the Mouvement Laïque Québécois and Alain Simoneau v.

At issue in this appeal was whether the City of Saguenay, Quebec and their mayor Jean Tremblay acted in a discriminatory manner against Alain Simoneau, a non-believer, by permitting prayers at city council meetings along with the continued display of previously in place religious symbols on city property. At its core, this appeal was also about how to reconcile or balance competing rights under anti-discrimination statutes.
