Justin Trudeau likes to accuse Stephen Harper of dividing Canadians over the niqab and claims that his father Pierre would be dismayed by what's happening.
It seems Justin isn't aware of his father's "Just watch me" moment in 1970 when he enacted the War Measures Act in Quebec to deal with acts of terrorism and kidnapping, but I digress.
If you've seen the latest Liberal party ads, you'll realize that it isn't so much that Trudeau is against "dividing" Canadians but only that he differs about which Canadians he's willing to pit against each other.
The scariest part of those ads is how much like "Occupy Redux" they seem, suggesting that if you see something you really want, don't work harder, just take it.
I fail to see how it's off-base to divide Canadians over the niqab but perfectly alright to villify the acheivers by pitting the takers against the makers.
