Premier Christy Clark says there are no plans to phase out the daily prayer that opens each sitting of the legislature.
This after the Supreme Court of Canada ruled a municipality in Quebec can no longer open its meetings with prayers, as the state must remain neutral on religion.
“You know the thing in British Columbia is, the prayer is sometimes it’s a prayer that’s completely non-religious. Sometimes it does refer to God or Allah or Jehovah, or any of the other names that people use for God.”
In fact, some MLA’s who deliver the daily prayer don’t mention God at all.
