WATCH: Quebec reporter destroys Media Party groupthink on burqa debate -- in 90 seconds

Rebel Staff

Don't miss this! Quebec journalist Chantal Hebert takes Andrew Coyne to task after he complains that too much of the French-language leaders' debate was devoted to Muslim face-coverings:'s own poll shows that 78% of Canadians oppose Muslim women covering their faces while taking the Canadian citizenship oath.

Believe that Muslim face coverings have no place in Canada?

Coyne, what a smug idiot. Useful idiot.

I’m very surprised that Chantal stated the truth! The other two look perplexed and have the deer in the light looks on their faces. Too funny!

Coyne’s insular arrogance and contempt for voters who do not tow the GTA globalist editorial line was evident – “lowest common denominator”, that seethes with classist bigotry. Elitist pomposity at toxic levels in his mindset – probably what qualified him for a seat at the Bilderberg elitist confab this year – I can see him right at home with “the right type of people”.

The arrogance of the Mediaparty and Andrew Coyne that Canadians cannot determine what election issues are? As Chantal points out, it’s not up to the editorial boards of newspapers in Toronto to determine what’s on Canadians’ minds, even if they so arrogantly think so…“We know better than the people. We’ll tell them what’s important at election time.”

I have to hand it to Chantal to get this one right. Coyne does not think the niqab is an issue, but 75% of us disagree with him. Today it may be a dozen who wear the niqab as he says, but tomorrow it will be two dozen. We cannot let them challenge everything they disagree with & appeal to the courts to side with them. That is why judges should be elected, not appointed. They become very arrogant in their decisions.

Terry said, “Thanks, Ho. It’s good to be reminded of what really lies behind all this fuss about a piece of cloth.”
I know you were being your usual passive aggressive, but if you don’t think there are more concessions lined up behind that one, you are either living in a dream world, don’t care, or want to change the face of the country as we know it.
Chantal quoted over 75% of Canadians support a full BAN. You and Coyne doubt that, or maybe Coyne just doesn’t care as well.

Coyne says, its not an issue,…“that is germane to the future of this country”, oh contraire, it is another step towards making our country their own. There are concessions lined up behind this one. There is no sane reason to be making any of these concessions.

“Wow, Chantal Hebert actually talking common sense. Now I’ve seen everything.”

My thoughts too, MAURICE POTVIN. Mind you, I haven’t seen/heard her in years…almost as if I avoid MSM punditry, eh?

Who knows, maybe she was born with some dirt under her nails, and so, has little use for the affected superiority of Coyne et al. It doesn’t hurt to let an uppity spade now that it’s nothing but a @#$%^&* shovel.

Interesting how it took a writer who works mostly for the CBC and Toronto Star to put into place – writers working for the “right wing” and “right of center” National Post and Globe & Mail on the subject of the Niqab.

The fact that 75% of Canadians are opposed to the Niqab tells me that there is a bigger more important issue being ignored and that is the question of Muslim immigration to Canada. Have they polled Canadians on whether they agree to the MASSIVE wave of immigration from Muslim majority countries? During his term as PM Harper has brought in 300,000 Muslim (a fact he boasts about). If just 10% of them are radicalized it means that Harper has let in 30,000 Jihadists into Canada where they are lying in wait getting ready to kill us. We know that the Liberals and NDP would let in even more.

Why aren’t we having a debate about Muslim immigration during this election period? When it is being discussed it is through peripheral issues such as wearing Niqab’s in citizenship ceremonies or letting in 10,000’s of “Syrian” “Refugees” (a suicidal act that ALL parties are in favor of so not much of a debate!).

Even The Rebel media doesn’t want to tackle the Muslim immigration. It has been supportive of Harper’s immigration policies despite the fact Harper has made Canada less safe by flooding Canada with Muslim immigrants. Why isn’t the Rebel media questioning Harper’s policies? He brought into Canada 22,000 Iraqi refugees. Why? We didn’t invade Iraq? Most of these “refugees” wound up in Toronto where they are occupying public housing intended for needy and deserving Canadians – while collecting welfare.

I have no doubt that the NDP and Liberals would be even worse but Harper’s Muslim immigration policies are not the policies of a “conservative”. I suspect Harper is trying to corner the Muslim vote.

I love the part where she addresses that the media is using its influence as a propaganda machine to sway voters to what journalists think is important rather than what Canadians think is important !
commented 2015-09-26 03:19:01 -0400
Liza… I think it’s a bit more serious than that… Andrew Coyne doesn’t really think it IS a trivial issue but that’s how he is/was deliberately trying to spin it…
commented 2015-09-26 00:18:08 -0400
Good for Chantal. I haven’t seen her that excited in ages.
Coyne thinks its a trivial issue, what a dope.
commented 2015-09-25 23:06:17 -0400
Andrew Coyne may have got blasted out of the water on this one but on a daily basis his bias now prevails as the editor for the comment section of the National Post… It’s certainly no longer the paper Conrad Black founded to counter the Berlin Wall of leftie opinion from the Red Star, the Mop ’n Pail, and the CBC
commented 2015-09-25 22:22:21 -0400
Why should they be allowed to wear a veil when some christian sects are now allowed. That is a double standard, but then we are used to this.
commented 2015-09-25 22:11:54 -0400
Not showing ones face when swearing in to become a Canadian citizen is an insult to Canada considering the lives and blood lost by our forefathers to make Canada the glorious country it is .If the bitches won’t show. their faces and show us how grateful they should be that we’d allow their sorry asses into our country in the first place then they must go live somewhere else.
They need to be more respectful .
commented 2015-09-25 18:47:37 -0400
If they don’t unveil, then they don’t become citizens. And if they don’t like it, too bad, we the majority don’t care!

Are Muslim Women allowed to vote, in their own Countries? This is a tricky question.
commented 2015-09-25 16:37:48 -0400
Zee said to Terry, "will they let me vote if I’m wearing a mask, or whatever “I” consider “MY” religious believes to be? "
And Terry responded to Zee, “Zee: since photo ID is not required to vote, I’m not sure what difference that would make.”

Terry, how about the same person voting several times, since the person’s face is covered.
commented 2015-09-25 16:35:03 -0400
Terry said, " If I asked the average Canadian: do you think our government should pass laws forcing women not to dress in specific ways, I think they’d probably say no. "

Of course Canadians would say no, but that is not the issue here, Terry!

The only issue here is if people should uncover their face during the ceremony, and 75% of Canadians agree that they should.
commented 2015-09-25 16:27:52 -0400
Alex, forget it , Terry loves to deal in semantics, it’s the old egg fart vs beer fart debate.
Wasn’t Andrew Coyne invited to this years Bildaberger conference as a reporter? Where is his report, did anyone see it?
commented 2015-09-25 16:27:51 -0400
Wow, Chantal Hebert actually talking common sense. Now I’ve seen everything. The sky must be galling.
commented 2015-09-25 14:54:16 -0400
Alex, sorry, I don’t seem able to make my point clear.
commented 2015-09-25 14:50:39 -0400
I am not buying what you are saying. It is not just coming from The Rebel. Clearly it is not. This is clear. More than 75% of Canadians want no part of a veil during this ceremony. Like Terry Black stated nobody brought them here at gunpoint. They have a choice to turn around if they choose not to show their face. NDP lost a member today because of this issue. He feels the niqab is oppressive to women.

Mulcair’s “this is not our war” policy has been compared to Chamberlains stance on Hitler in 1938. The only question left is to figure out which was the most ignorant political stance of all time. Hence the faux pas in mentioning Chamberlain

Just to piss off the mindless progressives (I’m sure the hypocrisy would shine!)
And also to push the boundaries,
Rock the boat if you will…

When I show up to the polls, will they let me vote if I’m wearing a mask, or whatever “I” consider “MY” religious believes to be?

Just asking…

Should Canadians at a state dinner use their dessert forks to eat salad with? (85% of Canadians say NO!)
Should Canada pass a law REQUIRING all Canadians to adhere to traditional cutlery deployment?
