Hey Trudeau, now do this when Quebec uses the clause.

Nipples - you should educate yourself! PM Trudeau has been most consistent in his opposition to use of the notwithstanding clause... including the most recent Quebec use in regards 'Bill 21', the Quebec law that prohibits public sector workers considered to be in positions of authority, including police, judges and teachers, from displaying or wearing religious symbols while at work. The PM Justin Trudeau opposition is in kind to that stated by PM Pierre Trudeau who enacted the Charter (that included the notwithstanding clause as forced by Provincial Premiers):
During negotiations with premiers to patriate Canada's Constitution with a charter of rights in 1982, Trudeau's father, former prime minister Pierre Trudeau, reluctantly agreed to provincial demands for a notwithstanding clause. His calculation, his son said, was that it was better to have a charter with the clause "than to not have a charter at all."
