Bank of Montreal Should Withdraw Its Attack on Christians

On March 26th, 2014 the Bank of Montreal wrote a letter to the Upper Canada Law Society attacking a Christian University law school for its support of traditional marriage.  BMO also co-signed a similar letter to the Federation of Law Societies of Canada.  The Nova Scotia Barristers Society then rejected Trinity Western's application.
 
On January 28th, 2015 the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia declared their actions to be unconstitutional stating "The NSBS resolution and regulation infringe on the freedom of religion of TWU and its students in a way that cannot be justified."
 
On behalf of Christians across the country the President of the Institute for Canadian Values Dr. Charles McVety says "it is sad when a trusted institution such as BMO turns on its own Christian customers who don't deserve this.  Now that the Court has spoken we expect BMO to withdraw its attack and not continue their assault on Canadian freedoms."
