MONTREAL — The mayor of the Quebec town whose citizens rejected a Muslim cemetery project says he isn’t ready to make residents relive the experience.
Saint-Apollinaire Mayor Bernard Ouellet said today he doesn’t have plans to invoke a new Quebec law giving municipalities more power in order to reintroduce the project to voters.
A proposal to establish the Quebec City area’s first Muslim-run cemetery was defeated in a referendum Sunday by a vote of 19 to 16.
