Halifax-Nova Scotia Parliament replaces daily prayer with a quiet moment of remorse.
Prime Minister Tim Houston’s proposal to change the rules was adopted by Parliament today.
Houston states that the change makes Nova Scotia feel welcome in parliament, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, language, or religion.
The prime minister says house rules will continue to evolve to ensure that everyone “feels inclusive.”
According to the Legislative Library, the tradition of demanding daily prayers dates back to the time when the legislature first sat down in 1758.
Parliament is Canada’s oldest legislature.
