Slovenly, rowdy Hasidic Jews evicted from Quebec town

Slovenly, rowdy Hasidic Jews evicted from Quebec town July 12, 2018

Denis Chalifoux, above, mayor of Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, was compelled to initiate court action against a group of Hasidic Jews whose behaviour sparked complaints.
Chalifoux, according to this report, said the town, north of Montreal, had sought – and gained – a Quebec Superior Court injunction to have the group removed from summer accommodation they were using as place of worship, in violation of local bylaws.
Chalifoux alleged that up to 60 mostly young people come to stay temporarily in two or three duplexes or triplexes on the property each summer, where he says they hold loud gatherings that disturb neighbours.

They create a nuisance, there’s garbage all around the house, they go to bed at 2 am and bang drums.

Chalifoux said the neighbourhood is zoned for residential use only, and the rules do not permit buildings to be used as places of worship, dormitories, or summer camps.
He said the town has sent numerous letters, warnings and citations since 2015 to try to resolve the conflict, but had no success.
Representatives from the group could not be reached for comment.
But last Saturday, Montreal’s La Presse newspaper quoted an anonymous member of the group as saying the problem wasn’t the group’s behaviour, but rather the fact that its members were Jewish.
Chalifoux, for his part, denies the eviction order is based on anti-Semitism, noting that the area is home to a large Jewish population and there haven’t been any similar conflicts with other groups.

The Jewish community has been here (in Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts) for 100 years or more. They founded the city with us, and we have a very good relationship with them.

While the injunction originally required the group to leave by Sunday, Chalifoux said the city has extended the deadline and the community has agreed to leave by July 26.

    If you lose legit argument play the persecution card. Always worth a shot.

    It has nothing to do with their delusional BS religion, its following the zoning rules. I have to follow the zoning rules, & so does everyone else. Screaming religious persecution means you know your guilty but want special treatment.

  • andym

    How predictable. Caught violating rules that apply to everyone else? Play the anti-Semitism card. It might not work, but at least it helps build up those grudges you love collecting.

    Presumably because they eschew demonic things like electricity on the Shabbat. You know, as you do when you’re a normal, rational human being.

    Electricity is demonic because they love showing everyone how ignorant (no not ignorant but st00pid) they are as they can’t tell the difference between electricity, a spark, and fire! And its their book o’BS that forbids FIRE -you bunch of dimwitted aholes!!! Study science instead of that silly book of fairy tales!

    @L.Long
    Precisely. However, I have a feeling that their silly book of fairy tales will rot their brains until the day they die. By which time they will, of course, have made sure that the 14 or so children each of them will have spawned will have been brainwashed just effectively as they have. Sad.

    You-all should be ashamed of your bigotry. It is antisemitic to expect jews to obey the same laws as everyone else. Especially after all they have suffered. They are special, don’t you know. If you want to know how special, study a little Talmud (written by jews) and see how much more valuable they are than we lowly goyim.
    i skied a lot at Ste Agathe when I( lived in Montreal. I am sorry that pleasant little town has had to deal with this invasion.

    I don’t care how religious their views are, they have to respect the law just like everyone else. Also, how many other people have suffered over the years? We should feel sorry for their suffering? Screw them.
