Nunavut’s newest MLAs sworn in

    Why are they praying? I don’t think that is appropriate in government. This practice should be stopped.

      The Supreme Court already ruled on prayer in public places.years ago ie they should not be doing it. And they don’t let schools do the Lord’s prayer so they shouldn’t be praying at the legislature or any other public meeting or gathering.,
