The Globe & Mail reports: "Muslim convert attacked while wearing niqab in Toronto"
The Globe's story begins:
"Her roots in Canada stretch back through her francophone mother to the 1600s. Last week, wearing her Islamic face veil – the niqab, which has become a central issue in the federal election – she says she was trying to enter Shoppers Drug Mart at Toronto’s Fairview Mall when a man carrying a liquor-store bag blocked her path and then drove his elbow hard into her shoulder, in front of her two daughters, ages nine and four.
“'It hurt, yo,' Safira Merriman, 30, said in a Facebook post describing the incident."
A Facebook post?
No police report, no witnesses, no nuthin' -- other than a juicy anti-Harper headline they could torque.
That’s all the Globe needed.
That’s the new evidentiary bar in Canadian journalism.
Maybe the guy was just a rude drunk?
Are there witnesses?
CCTV footage? Of course given the “incident” happened last week, it’s doubtful any footage still exists today.
Believe that Muslim face coverings have no place in Canada?
The Rebel Store has the t-shirt for you:"Separation of Mosque and State"
Judges say Muslim women can wear burqas while pledging Canadian citizenship.
