What is even more shocking is that the Liberal Leader (Government Party) Michael Ignatieff is in support of the bill. He claims that this is the balance of religious tolerance. But, then again this shouldn’t be too surprising coming from him after all he is the same person who said he supports Israel in all dimensions in English and then made a speech in French where he disapproved of Israel’s actions.
Also, to be noted is that Naema Ahmed, a mother of three and a recent immigrant, was expelled out of a French language class in Quebec before this bill was table due to her wearing the Niqab.
