I spoke to journalist Eric Duhaime about what's going on in Quebec politics right now.
English Canadian reporters are abuzz about NDP leader Thomas Mulcair's comments about separation. Duhaime agrees with me that no one in Quebec is talking about that issue right now.
What Quebeckers are really concerned about is the niqab, and the court decision allowing Muslim women to cover their faces while taking the citizenship oath.
Duhaime says the NDP's popularity in the province has been dropping one percent a day and they're now below 40 percent, based on the perception that the party is pro-niqab.
Duhaime says even most Quebec Muslims oppose it.
He adds that there is also a "huge backlash" against proposals to accept large numbers of Syrian refugees.
"If there is a problem in Syria, we should help them in Syria," he says, is the common point of view among average people, even if the media don't agree.
Believe that Muslim face coverings have no place in Canada?
