Laws have been promoted through Europe from one nation to the next where both burqas (total head coverings) and niqabs (all except a narrow slit for the eyes) are either restricted or completely banned in those nations. The French, British, Spanish, Austrians, Swiss, Hungarians, Poles, and many of the Scandinavian nations have also followed suit and made these restrictions regarding those specifically who receive public services and assistance.
As well, in the Chinese Uyghur province where the Muslim population is nearly 100% due to the influx hundreds of migrants years ago from Turkey and Afghanistan, China’s government has stepped in with very drastic laws that have put bans not only on religious head and face coverings, but also on prayer kneeling mats. Although the Chinese government denies these bans, there are humanitarian groups in that area that have confirmed the widespread reports.
In Canada’s Quebec province, Right wing politicians have successfully passed a new law that prohibits the wearing of religious garb that fully or mostly obscures the face and head if they are using or receiving public services or assistance. And Liberals are, of course, having a fit.
Right Wing News:
Canada is about to take a huge step to curb radical Islamism and one sure to tick devout Muslims off. Quebec is expected to vote on legislation today that will ban the Muslim niqab and burqa in the public service workplace. No more face coverings. No more being covered head to toe. Comply or don’t work or get service.
Debate was concluded yesterday and of course, the opposition parties are vowing to vote against the bill. I think the bill is needed and in fact, is vital to the survival and safety of Canadians. They are calling this a ‘religious neutrality’ law. It is the first of its kind in North America and will even have an affect on doctors and teachers. This is bound to come up here in the US as well.
Bill 62 ironically doesn’t specifically mention either the niqab or the burqa. But they are definitely targeted here and will be banned in public services. Trudeau must be livid this is going through. The law is very broad in scope. Since its proposal, it has been expanded to not only include provincial services, but municipal ones as well. That means that people riding a bus in Montreal won’t be allowed access to the vehicle if they have their faces covered. It will go a long way to stopping terrorism.
There are a ton of critics of course… socialists and Islamists are lining up to complain. They say the law will create a tsunami of exemptions and massive judicial chaos while it is challenged in the court system. In addition to provincial government departments, the bill also applies to any institution or agency that relies on the province funding, such as school boards and hospitals. This in effect, is something similar to what Jeff Sessions threatened when he said he would pull federal funding for sanctuary cities. Canadians need to make sure this law goes through and is implemented. It’s just one more blow to Shariah law and Islamic terrorism.
While the Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, BFF to Barack Hussein Obama, may not be on board with this new law and proclaims that the Canadian government will support its Muslim citizenry, he admits that they will not get involved in provincial laws and disputes in their parliamentary process.
However, the mayor of Montreal is boiling made with faux outrage in order to ingratiate himself to his very large Muslim voting base before the upcoming election. Islam is the second largest religion in Quebec province and that is probably the reason why this is a controversy in the first place.
