Correcting the record on the niqab issue

Brian LilleyArchive

Do you ever feel like you are in a virtual reality? Or maybe you feel that you are the sane one and others are living in an alternate reality.

I’m getting that feeling in the election right now.

The niqab issue is back and once again there is a whole lot of disinformation on this.

Several facts have been distorted for partisan purposes by the Media Party, the Opposition parties and all those suffering from Harper Derangement Syndrome.

Let's review how we got from there to here and see if the record matches the story as it's being told now.

We've been talking about this for a while. We even set up a website at ShowYourFace.ca with a petition calling on the government to appeal the court ruling which thousands of you have signed.

And we’re going to keep updating the site each time we bring you more information on this story. Unfortunately, one of my main jobs covering this story seems to be correcting the record, the imaginary record, put out there by the mainstream media. Seems like on this story, they can’t handle the truth.

Finally, some French medias are spreading the news about this lady.
Here are some links to share with your French speaking Friends :
An article on the journal de Montreal :
http://www.journaldemontreal.com/2015/10/16/la-femme-au-niqab-uvre-au-sein-dune-organisation-radicale A radio interview with the journalist :


It ain’t a strong affirmation of, let’s say who’s behind her financially, but it a start !

I can remember the vitriol form the progressive media and the left in general when Hutterites wanted to wear a head scarf. Funny how things change when lefties are subjugated. And for the record i did not support the change for the Hutterites , unlike the progressives i am not a hypocrite
commented 2015-10-08 19:25:06 -0400
Good for you Harvey. I’m sure you upset all the lefties in the room!

At all Candidates meeting last night I was the only one to point out that this is not part of Islam and if you want to come to Canada show your face. HARVEY ANSTEY CANADIAN ACTION PARTY

Really goes to show how the little smurfs who work for these media outlets in Toronto can and will take anything and bend and distort it to serve their own agenda. When you watch the video of Harper’s interview, it is the CBC journalist who brings it it up and his comments are so innocuous and at the very most, he says that he would have a look at Quebec’s policy about the niqab and civil servants.
commented 2015-10-08 10:26:46 -0400
John Zealand, I echo that statement.

BZ, there will be a civil war only if the rest of Canada opposes the separation of western Canada. I’m with you brother I don’t recognize this country anymore and it is killing me to break my oath that I swore to defend it, but now it’s just coming down to the preservation of my God given right to live as a free man.

Can’t wait until the Rebel starts broadcasting from the new studio. Screw the media party bias shit. Good luck with the election coverage and thank you for filling the void left by Sun Media.

@ Rick Plesnik – a non-citizen? LOL

This is Canada – we now no longer stand for anything unless it weakens the country.

Trust me this is only the tiniest tip of the iceburg – it will get far worse indeed.

And we have no one to blame but ourselves

This country needs a good civil war.

Lisa Rosa, that is the whole point this is about sharia, it is about misogyny. If we don’t talk about this during the election, when will the right time be?
commented 2015-10-08 02:08:58 -0400
Canada should adapt different laws for Muslims, something the Religion of Peace would understand. Go into Court wearing a Niqab and leave wearing a Body Bag.

Is it law or etiquette that someone has to rise when a judge is entering the court? Will that someone be charged with contempt if not doing so? To whom this someone has shown contempt? Is it law or etiquette that someone has to show the face while swearing in as citizen? To whom this someone has shown contempt by not doing so? Should this someone be charged with contempt?
I guess the first instance the court (judge) has been offended, whereas the second instance, the country (all her citizens) that the someone is swearing allegiance to has been offended. Why should it be allowed? I’m confused.
commented 2015-10-07 23:51:44 -0400
I seem to remember a court analysis that said the court struck it down on a procedural point rather than on the basis of that it was contrary to other laws. The problem was that Mr. Kenney made this as a policy announcement rather than having it approved through a formal regulation approved through Order in Council or through a bill. Once that is done this will not be an issue anymore.

It is really strange as after so many years you just don’t anticipate a mistake in procedure like that to come from Mr. Kenney’s office. The “Minister of Everything” is typically a very detailed and competent fellow.

George Luck said,“I wish someone would stand up and make it clear that neither the nagib or the full length body-bag are religious articles.”
You are absolutely right George, No matter how many times its pointed out, the left keeps using that as an excuse to stand up for it. Even when people like Rahil Raza say it, it is ignored by the left. http://www.therebel.media/_it_hurt_yo_globe_mail

I think its pretty clear everyone knows it is indeed about more than the Niqab. This issue is being used to initiate us to Sharia. Its just another step along the path to the loss of our identity, so it can be replaced with another.
commented 2015-10-07 22:03:14 -0400
Excuse me, but what right does a non citizen have to come to this country and demand that Canadians forgo their traditions and expectations? That is the real issue here! The Lieberal courts have it all wrong. They are placing the wishes of non citizens above that of Canadians which is insulting at least, and treasonous at worst. Should that non citizen not wish to respect our customs, they know where the door out is! This country was built by those pursuing the Canadian way of life, not demanding we change it to accommodate their prejudices!

This is when politicians just do not get it …..The Niqab issue has nothing to do the Niqab….it all to do with the fact that foreigners come to Canada and decide to Make a supreme Court challenge the day they get here. The push back is from the Canadians who Say “if you do not like our country go back to where you came from”. Its a push back from the constant bending over that certain politicians do to try and get elected. Quebec is a very Proud Nation within a Nation…The have spoken on the niqab…Thomas Mulcair will pay the price because he did not understand the issue.
commented 2015-10-07 21:19:07 -0400
It would be really interesting to find out if Zunera Ishaq prefers Shariya law over our Canadian law seeing she would chance not becoming a citizen if she was asked to remove her Niqab during the citizenship ceremony.

I wish someone would stand up and make it clear that neither the nagib or the full length body-bag are religious articles. True muslims do not have to wear either and their alleged holy book does not make that admonition. They may be cultural items, but that is all. Only radical muslims are demanding them and this is the first step in the establishment of that alleged religion as a dominant force. How long would any of us be allowed to stand in front of a judge wearing a Winston Churchill rubber mask? Not too bloody long.

Is the MSM really on the wrong side, Kelvin, or are they trying to create the “correct” opinion and viewpoint? Either way, it appears that they’re failing… but will they notice? Worse, if they notice, will they pay attention?
commented 2015-10-07 20:42:29 -0400
So far the MSM has been on the wrong side of every single issue.
commented 2015-10-07 20:13:35 -0400
The Media Party, CBC, CTV, Justin Trudeau, Thomas Mulcair will never admit the truth on this issue as it shows’ that it is they who are not in touch with Canadians’!

We really need to splock the Poll results out to the public – over and over again for the world to see what kind of liars’ the above are and demonstrate to Canada how they are working against you to force their ideas’ down your throat in effort to get you and I to accept what they want!
Well as far as I am concerned – Not on my watch, what about you? Like to have your will and desires for the country you live in accepted as well?
Especially when it is so overwhelmingly requested by the majority of Canadian people!!!!!
commented 2015-10-07 19:44:30 -0400
Brian, the MSM can’t handle the truth at anytime or anyplace on anything. The MSM is a bloody disgraceful bunch of liars and truth twisters. We as Canadians will never get the truth from this bunch of liars.
