Yet Another Poll Shows Nationwide Support For Bill 62

The elites are totally out-of-touch with the real views of Canadians.

As the elitist effort to demonize Bill 62 as “racist” continues, yet another poll shows a clear majority of Canadians in every province support legislation to ban face-veiling similar to the law brought in by Quebec.

The poll conducted by Ipsos Public Affairs and first reported by Global News showed the following results on whether people support or oppose legislation like Bill 62:

  • Canada-wide: 68% support, 32% oppose
  • British Columbia: 69% support, 31% oppose
  • Alberta: 64% support, 36% oppose
  • Saskatchewan & Manitoba: 69% support, 31% oppose
  • Ontario: 66% support, 34% oppose
  • Quebec: 76% support, 24% oppose
  • Atlantic Canada: 57% support, 43% oppose

As you can see, a majority of people in every part of the country support a ban on face-veiling similar to Bill 62.

Yet, many are realizing the odd fact that no federal political party is speaking out in favour of it. Even the Conservatives have refused, despite the fact that a huge majority of Conservative supporters are in favour of legislation like Bill 62, and despite the fact that the Conservatives have previously been known for supporting similar measures.

The majority of Canadians who support Bill 62 deserve politicians who represent those views. Instead, it seems almost the entire political class would rather push the elitist politically correct line than stand up for what Canadians want.

It’s a disturbing sign that something in our democracy is missing, as the true views of Canadians are being blocked from reaching all the way to the top of political leadership.

  1. The conservatives supported law 62 but did not find it went far enough. The Couillard Liberal think they can reduce this law or somehow defeat it when they will provide accommodation to all who want to wear this kind of attire. However, I think it is a very good start and will provide a good model for all the other provinces to draft better laws similar to law 62 but stronger.

  2. All of Canada should be passing bill 62 not just Quebec. Our PM Justin Trudeau say that you can’t tell a women what she can wear, he is wrong because when it comes to a security reason yes you can. As a PM he should be trying to make our country safe be he is not. All Justin Trudeau does is he give in to all these Muslim demand. Instead he should be telling them this you must understand that Canadians are not racist, they accepted many immigrants before Muslims. Canadians are not willing to give up their identity, or their culture. Canada welcome all foreigners, but they must understand that in Canada or Quebec with Christian roots, churches and religious festivals religion must remain in your private domain. And for Muslim who disagree with this and do not feel comfortable in Canada, there are 57 beautiful Muslim countries in the world that well receive you with open arms, that believe in the same faith.

  3. Let’s cut to the chase — anyone who for any reason, at any time, under any circumstances who wishes to avail themselves of services which are available because they are paid for by the public (taxpayers) has no reason not to show their face as, not only for identification purpose, but simply because it is good manners. If one wants to wander around in their own area with their face covered, that is their business. But, in public, you OWE the public the same respect they have for you by having your face uncovered. If, for some reason, you find that you cannot (or will not) understand that, then you should appoint someone to do those things that require you to be in public. However, for medical purposes, driver’s licenses, passports and such things, NO face covering whatever — and no discussion.
