  1. Hi David,
    I read your opinion piece for Global Mail that you wrote in 2013 titled,”Why a Secular Charter is good for Quebec” for an essay for school and would like to have a conversation with you to better understand the reasons of why many Quebecois want a secular society.
    To begin with, in your opinion piece, you say, “State employees must not under any circumstances display such symbols while they are on duty”. This is followed by an example of how a Muslim family wants their daughter to wear the veil, the daughter wants to see a social worker but the social worker wears the veil and thus the daughter cannot discuss her problem.
    However, there are many times when a social worker has a visible connection to a client’s problem. Sometimes these visible connections can be things that are not merely cloths or scarves worn as veils but it can be the social workers’ race, ethnicity, nationality, or gender. At times, these circumstances can be difficult to overcome for the client but the client can always request for a different social worker and sometimes these circumstances can be more beneficial to the client in overcoming these obstacles by providing more information on how to deal with the situation by being connected to the issue of the client’s.
    It’s difficult to explain my point of view but I’m hoping that you understand what I’m trying to say and reply with your opinion to start a conversation. Thanks.

  2. Hi David,
    Really enjoyed reading that same piece and you definitely introduced me to a whole new perspective about secularism and its positives. Is there a linkedin about your bio because I am writing a compare and contrast essay about your article and another, and the authours’ background is relevant to the essay style critiquing.
    If not, can you possibly answer some questions listed below:
    Where did you earn your BA and in what field?
    What other jobs or other businesses are you involved in?
    How old are you?
    What city do you currently reside?

    1. You really enjoyed reading WHAT “same piece”??
      You left this comment on the table of contents, so I have no idea which blog you are referring to.
      I will answer you by email.
