Supreme Court says prayer should not be part of municipal council meetings

A ruling from the Supreme Court of Canada may affect Stratford’s city council.

The issue at hand is the prayer before each meeting.

Last Wednesday the court ruled prayers should not be part of municipal council meetings.

That was in connection with a case in Quebec.
