SURVEY: 70% Of Canadians Outside Quebec Support Ban On Face-Covering Similar To Bill 62


So, why aren’t more politicians standing up for the views of a clear majority of Canadians?

Despite the elitist media and weak political class almost universally condemning Bill 62, a new Angus Reid poll shows a clear majority of Canadians outside Quebec support similar legislation – as I said a week ago.

We already know that Canadians in Quebec overwhelmingly support bans on face-covering in certain situations. Now, it is clear that support extends across the country.

Angus Reid asked “And, suppose your own province was considering a similar law requiring people providing or receiving government services to do so with their faces uncovered. Would you support or oppose such a law in your own province.”

Here’s what Canadians outside Quebec think:

  • 45% strongly support such a law.
  • 25% moderately support such a law.
  • 15% moderately oppose such a law.
  • 14% strongly oppose a law.

Combined, 70% support such a law, while just 30% oppose it. And yet, notice how no political party outside Quebec has expressed support for such legislation. This is the gap between the elite political class (even some in the Conservatives), and the general opinions of Canadians.

To most of us, the idea that people should uncover their face in certain situations is simply common-sense. Yet, many politicians denounce it as “racist,” and cast it as an attack on Islam, despite the fact that many large Muslim-majority nations have such a ban, and despite the fact that the ban would apply to all types of face-coverings, not just those used by a certain faith.

That’s why it’s time for politicians to re-connect with the Canadian people, and start representing our views, instead of putting political correctness ahead of Canadian common-sense.

  1. Opposing Bill 62 is just another indicator that Canada now has a DICTATOR. Justin Trudeau was voted in to do what Canadians Want and Expect him to do. Opposing this bill, Justin Trudeau and his Liberals are CONFIRMING to Canadians that we are NOW being Ruled by a DICTATOR!

    1. And so it clearly seems behind all that rhetoric he continues to repeat with each speech we do indeed have a dictator on our hands.

  2. Is face covering legal in a riot, protest, etc? Is the real reason Trudeau isn’t supporting this bill is it would make illegal facecovered antifa type of protests. We know in the US antifa protesters are paid, along with the usual useful idiots. The Left likes social activism……..sarcasm …….Or is Trudeau and the Left just vote hunting?

  3. This Bill would have gotten no support from a CPC government either. As you said,Andrew, we are ruled by a weak political class, that sees no advantage to supporting an un-politically correct Bill. The CPC hopes,wishes,and prays that one day they might get the well organized Muslim voting block on their side, just as the LPC has them at this time.

    Politicians in Canada love nothing better than a well organized voting block that they can pander to and buy the votes of, examples the Francophones, Sikhs,Chinese,and now the Muslims.

    The politicians see the Muslims as latter day Sikhs, and believe they will assimilate as well as the Sikhs into Canada. Politicians have no knowledge of the religion/cult of Islam, or their doctrine of conquest,and will not listen to Muslims like Tarek Fatah or Ayan Hirswi Ali who try to tell them about the dangers of the Islamists among us.

    No,our politicians are of the civil servant mentality,just want to put in their time and collect their pension,with as little fuss as possible. I don’t worry about violence as we’ve seen in Europe simply because there is no need for the Muslims to commit violence,we are giving them the Country little by little without any struggle whatsoever. Canadian politicians are the true “Eloi” of the world,with much of the population not too far behind.

    The only difference we will see regarding the Muslims and their huge immigration/refugee numbers under a Conservative government will be a slight slowdown in refugee claimants at the U.S. Border, but continued mass migration from the ME.

    By 2050 Canada should be a caliphate. I’ll be long dead so it won’t matter much to me.

  4. Seventy % lower than I would have though. My wife is a Sunni Muslim from the old Soviet Union. She agrees with this law 100%, simply put, if she was in a radical muslim country she would cover her face if it were demanded. Consequently, here in Canada, Muslims must cloth and behave to the mores of Canada’s citizens and culture.

  5. As so often happens, many of those who ‘are against’ something tend to view the situation from an emotional point of view and there is nothing fundamentally wrong in that. On this issue, I feel that practical reality would serve the discussion better. For instance (aside from our social norms) there is, as we are all well aware those who wish to wreak havoc at any moment and under any circumstances that may present themselves and full face covering gives them that practical reality. Aside from that, anyone who wishes to access ‘public services,’ which are paid for by the public should be able to understand the need for the giver to have a visual sighting of those wishing to access the ‘public service.’ Identification is essential at those times, regardless of some real or perceived violation of a ‘tradition.’ Also, there is in today’s world, always the chance that is some terrorist inspired act takes place and the police arrive on the scene, it is essential for them to be able to identify anyone in the area, particularly when they have no knowledge whether or not there was more than one perpetrator — notwithstanding the financial costs if someone with their face covered was injured or killed in a situation where at any moment, conditions can change rapidly when nerves be stretched and a miscue takes place.

  6. Prince Trudeau will not implement this bill out side of Quebec. The back stabbing CPC would be no different with Scheer. They all know what is best for us. Government for the politicians not for the people. Welcome to Canada Comrade

  7. I have to show my face, provide i.d. with photo for services to confirm who I am. healthcare needs photo i.d and a visual conformation.
    drivers licence requires photo i.d. and a visual conformation
    gun permit requires photo i.d. and a visual conformation.
    How is it that a certain segment of society can take advantage of services that Canada provides without confirming who the person is requesting service in the first place?
    Having a male relative “confirm” who you are does not cut it
