Is the niqab unCanadian?

Brian LilleyArchive

Look at at what some of our political elites are saying and doing and ask one thing: Do they know what it means to be Canadian?

PLUS: The progressive defence of face coverings during citizenship ceremonies, fixing the anti-terror bill, silence on the High River gun grab and official proof that Ontario's Liberals are corrupt.

Our country, our ways. It is simple as that.

I get what you’re saying George, a part of me says “Who cares, we’re individuals and it’s not anyone’s job to say what we should do”. But as a Canadian, we have an Oath that is taken when someone comes to Canada to become a part of it. If people do not like that, then it is their prerogative not to come to Canada. It is part of our law, our culture, the way we do things.

This is nothing to do with religious freedoms, it’s the fact that we have our laws. Not only that, but they AREN’T EVEN CANADIANS YET!!!!! Why would we change our laws for people who aren’t even Canadians yet?? It’s Insane.

The Libertarian half of my brain tells me that I have no business specifying what clothes people should or should not wear. Nevertheless, whilst growing up, it was with good reason that I was led to believe that folks who cover their face were, generally speaking, up to no good. Only two exceptions; Zorro and the Lone Ranger.

I think the point is that everyone should be equal under the law regardless of what one’s religion says. If niqabs are allowed then so should those scary skull mask bandanna thingies.
