68% Of Canadians Want Face-Coverings Like The Niqab & Burka Banned In Public. So Why Doesn’t Any Political Party Represent That Point Of View?

Many countries in Europe are waking up and making it clear that oppressive and barbaric practices have no place in free nations. Yet, none of Canada’s federal parties are willing to represent a view held by the clear majority of Canadians.

One of the most serious threats to the future of our nation is the growing gap between the views of the Canadian People, and the views put forward by the top contending parties.

And when it comes to Canadian identity, and what is, and isn’t acceptable in Canada, those in power are often totally unwilling to actually stand up for what Canadians want.

Nowhere is that more obvious than on issues like the full face coverings of the Niqab and Burka.

In response to the overwhelming views of their populations, many countries in Europe have cracked down and made clear that full face coverings will not be allowed.

And here in Canada, the Canadian People have made themselves very clear in polls: Full face coverings like the Niqab and Burka are not welcome.

A poll by Ipsos Public Affairs showed that 68% of Canadians supported a law similar to Quebec’s Bill 62 – which stated that removing a full face-covering was required in order to either give or receive public services.

76% of Quebecers supported it, and that support was strong in other provinces as well:

In B.C., 69% supported it, in Alberta 64% supported it, in Saskatchewan and Manitoba 69% supported it, in Ontario 66% supported it, and 57% of people supported it in Atlantic Canada.

So, it’s a policy on clarifying Canadian identity and making clear what our country will and won’t accept. Over two-thirds of Canadians want the face coverings banned in public. Yet, no political party is willing to stand up for it federally.

The Liberals, Conservatives, and NDP all opposed the idea of a face-covering ban, showing a disturbing disconnect that leaves many millions of Canadians unrepresented and disenfranchised.

This must change. The longer the true views of Canadians are ignored, the more anger will grow beneath the surface, and the more our democracy will fall into pieces.

Most Canadian political parties in Canada are influenced by the “Globalists”, who blindly support the Agenda as dictated by the United Nations. Generally these agenda are diametrically opposed to what the majority of citizens hold near and dear to what they want Canada to be. You only have to look at the UK, Germany, and France, as well as the Northern European countries, to see the devastating impact the UN Agenda have inflicted on these countries. Unfortunately, Canadian politicians are so enamoured with the UN, they are blind to the results.

Why are Liberals and the women’s movement silent at the forced humiliation, forced to wear the Niqab & Burka , acid attacks, forced marriages of teens and younger, and mutilation of women in Arab societies? Islam gets the “Free Pass”…..

I think most likely they ignore saying anything about that, they only talk about issues that they like, bunch of demons they are.

Where is our self proclaimed feminist costume clown ? Using an old time movie quote: Trudeau speaks with forked tongue. He definitely does NOT speak for all Canadians. It is disturbing that he hardly misses a Pride parade yet defends Islam with slurs and name calling. He seems to be trying to be everything to everybody and has ended up being nothing to everyone.

I am surprised some Liberal backbenchers haven’t crossed the floor if they want to continue in politics.

“He seems to be trying to be everything to everybody and has ended up being nothing to everyone.”
Del, you nailed it, and was what I was thinking as well.
He’s weak, unmanly, and lacks the image of strength – this he knows.
He gets by on acting, like most of the others.
His persona is built on an inferiority complex, knowing he can never be like his father, and the Stones don’t want men in fancy socks back-stage.

Thanks, Spencer. How about writing about your reasons why “coverings” aren’t banned in Canada. The Liberals were willing to criticize Saudi Arabi’s gender inequalities, but in Canada it’s OK to put women in black bags?

Politicians are….politicians. Insipid careerists who will avoid alienating anyone over a matter of principle if they think that they might lose electoral support or incur the wrath of an internationalist press. Consequently they will sell their nation out without compunction–on the assumption that the general electorate is too naive to notice their betrayal.

While we’re at it, lets also ban ski masks and especially “hoodies”. Street thugs always wear hoodies, and I’ve never seen anyone wearing a ski mask while on skis.

There WAS a law in Canada against covering your face in public, and the only exemption was for a medical patient with bandages, or of course, face coverings in Winter. I wonder if that law was ever rescinded, or like so many others, it has become a law of inconvenience for the politicians, much like bicycle helmets. I am naturally suspicious of anyone who covers their face, it often hides the face of a mugger or burglar or someone who wants to hide his face for nefarious purposes. Unless it’s as cold as a typical Canadian Winter, you have to… Read more »
