CSA Releases Video & Media Advisory in Support of Public Prayer Campaign

CSA Logo

The Canadian Secular Alliance has released a public statement - Eliminate Public Prayer in Canada, Secularists Will Argue Before Supreme Court - and the following video in support of our campaign to end public prayer at Canadian city council meetings.

For more information on the initiative click here


The Canadian Secular Alliance (CSA) interviews key secularists fighting to make their cities inclusive by ending the discriminatory practice of reciting partisan religious prayers, as we prepare for the Supreme Court of Canada hearings in the case of Mouvement laique quebecois vs. City of Saguenay, which could decide on the continued use of public prayer across Canada.

The CSA has been granted leave to intervene in this case. Please support our campaign by donating today!
