Quebec passes Bill 62 forcing public to uncover faces to give or receive services
Bill 62 is the Liberal government’s attempt to enshrine into law what is considered to be a fundamental Quebec value that the state should not promote religion of any kind.
"Liberal" doesn't mean much anymore, and their premise is a logical fallacy. Allowing niqab does not promote religion, anymore than allowing Catholic nuns to cover their bodies so that you can't be absolutely sure whether they are male or female. In fact, they are promoting a bias against a select kind of religious attire.
Quebec says it doesn't promote religion? If the Pope visits they will block off thoroughfares for his parade, which will be attended by thousands of nuns! Banks will be robbed by "nuns", and windows broken by "nuns", and no one will be certain if they were male or female.
In short, they have no platform at all on which to base this law, and yet it passed. So much for the mental acuity of most politicians. Except that, for once, Trudeau has said something intelligent: “But here, at the federal level, we defend the rights of all Canadians.”
Where were the lefties when this Bill was being put forward? Why aren't they all out on the streets wearing face coverings? Still busy ignoring Obama's 7 wars on Muslims?
This being a secular country, I predict that the next generation of kids will all dress the same, because that's what kids do, and the problem - if it is indeed a problem - will resolve on its own.
