Parliament unanimously adopted a motion by Bloc Québécois MP Alain Therrien that says Christmas is a tradition celebrated in Canada.

The House of Commons has adopted a unanimous motion in support of Christmas which denounces the portrayal of the holiday by the Canadian Human Rights Commission (CHRC) as discriminatory.

Bloc Québécois MP Alain Therrien introduced the motion on Nov. 30 saying that the House recalls that “Christmas is a tradition celebrated in Quebec and Canada” and invites all to “unite as we approach the Christmas season.”

It adds that the House should “denounce” the commission’s statement that “‘Statutory holidays related to Christianity, including Christmas and Easter’, represent an ‘obvious example’ of ‘systemic religious discrimination’, and that this ‘discrimination against religious minorities in Canada is grounded in Canada’s history of colonialism.’”
