The Canadian province of Quebec has passed a sweeping ban on face coverings barring public workers from wearing the niqab or burqa and obliging citizens to unveil when riding public transit or receiving government services ushering in a law believed to be the first of its kind in North America.
The legislation was adopted on Wednesday, capping off two years of work by the provinces Liberal government to address the issue of state neutrality. The resulting law has been condemned by critics who say it deliberately targets Muslim women and will fuel the provinces simmering debate on identity, religion and tolerance.
Philippe Couillard, the premier of Quebec, was defensive as he addressed the new law. We are just saying that for reasons linked to communication, identification and safety, public services should be given and received with an open face, he told reporters. We are in a free and democratic society. You speak to me, I should see your face, and you should see mine. Its as simple as that.

The hosers hate peace-loving and peaceful moozlums ? Those insensitive racists . Who knew ? ??
Quick! File an appeal with the US District Judge in Hawaii! The ban is aimed at religious bias.
Islamophobia on parade in the bastion of progressive group think.
someone will surely over rule this?
Quebec City is on my list of places to visit.
Whatta bout baclavas while skiing in that part of The Great White North?
The way France is going, Quebec City may be our only chance to visit a “French City” going forward.
>>Quebec City is on my list of places to visit.<<
Agony and ecstasy:
* Agony: French and French culture everywhere
* Ecstasy: HATES France and doesn’t much like muslims
In all seriousness, I am glad to see the anti-Christian, leftist Quebecois, attack another 'religion' other than Christianity.
Since they overrule the US Constitution, why would they also not try to impose their will over the laws of a sovereign country, like Canada?
The overruling will come from Justin Trudeau himself. Complete with an emotional outburst, and the question, “How could the Quebecois be so CRUEL?”
I actually put Quebec City on my list because it was featured in the KDrama, “Goblin”.
From my understanding, citizens of Quebec have their own dialect of French. It’s not what American High Schools are teaching. They are very serious about preserving that culture too, or at least they used to be.
These hosers are Quebecois - they follow France, its culture and trends. Mostly still socialist and globalist - but different in some key points from Anglophone Canada.
But at least Canadians are really friendly and a dozen jelly donuts gets you a sit down. (except for some Quebec hard liner frenchies)
“It’s like those French have a different word for everything.”
I can speak and read French rather well, but understanding spoken French? Oublie ça !
