Outremont (a borough in Montreal) voters voted yesterday to uphold an anti-Semitic bylaw to ban new houses of worship on the two remaining streets that still allowed it.

Yes, you read it right. With the new bylaws upheld by the anti-Semitic masses, no new houses of worships (read: synagogues. 25% of the population is frum Jews. Not a single church has been built there in many decades and the few existing ones are collecting dust. I never saw anyone enter one in my life. No Muslims live in the borough.) can be built in Outremont. ZERO. EVER.

No, these are not conservative right-wing alt-right voters. They are uber-liberal rich elitist Frenchies.

Growing up in Outremont, this isn't the first or the last anti-Semitic bylaw that has passed. They come every year, whenever they see Jews happy about something, they will ban it. This is by far the most egregious one that I can remember.

It's a Chiddush that French-Canadians are Anti-Semites?

No. Just reporting their most egregious step yet.

Of course on the first.
Didn't understand the second.

Laws are merely nuances. A lot can get done אונטערן טיש.

CMIIW. I thought Outremont is very expensive and the bulk of the population growth (if there is any) is in uptown. So this doesn't really make a big difference.

It's expensive. "Uptown" is also in Outremont. This affects "downtown." The bulk of growth is "downtown."
