Why this photo of a politician with Malala is being criticised
A Quebec education minister is being criticised for posting a photo with education campaigner Malala Yousafzai. Quebec recently passed a controversial law barring some civil servants, including teachers, from wearing religious symbols at work. In June, Quebec passed secularism legislation that prevents civil servants in positions of "Authority" from wearing symbols like such as the kippah, turban or hijab while at work. The Coalition Avenir Quebec's bill covers judges, police officers, teachers and some other public figures. Mr Roberge, who met Ms Yousafzai while he was in France, defended the law when asked on Twitter by journalist Salim Nadim Valji how he would respond if Ms Yousafzai wanted to teach in Quebec.
