Lynda Briguène, Green Party candidate, at odds with her own party on niqab ban

A Quebec Green Party candidate is standing firmly behind her belief that the niqab should be banned in Canada, despite being at odds with her party’s leader and many of her fellow party members on the issue.

Lynda Briguène, the Green Party candidate for Alfred-Pellan — a riding on Montreal’s north shore — believes the niqab should be banned from all public spaces in the country.

    A candidate for the Green Party makes sense?!

    The seemingly impossible has happened.

    Excuse me while I go check my unicorn traps.

      I thought I just heard shrimp whistling.

    • eMan14

      I saw some clams running away.

      • Justin St.Denis

        I won $1000 at the Snail Races at Casiinorama.

  • Alain

    What I find most surprising is that someone like her showing common sense, judgement and intelligence would belong to the nuttiest party of the Left.

    • Beats me!

    • Shebel

      She has no competition and no loyalty . It is easy .

  • terrence

    And what will Lizzy May have to say about this – she is NOT toeing the party line1

    • Justin St.Denis

      Lizzie is still passed out and hasn’t been briefed yet.

      • Shebel

        Has she turned Green yet ?

  • Shebel

    It offends me sometimes that many of these so-called females – don’t cover up.
    Sometimes it is really difficult to correspond with a really ugly person.

  • BillyHW

    She still thinks CO2 is worse than Islam. Women shouldn’t be allowed to vote.

    • Shebel

      I can tell that she is a very smart girl and has not yet succumbed to this Green Bull Shit. There is still some Hope,
      I am pretty sure that I can revive her.

      • The Butterfly

        And that’s why she’s running for the Green Party?

  • There are Muslim women who don’t like wearing it, either.

    Miss Briguene must decide if there really is a place for her in the Green Party.

    • Shebel

      We have room in the Conservative Party.

  • Shebel

    She is so damned pretty that I have to agree with her.

  • Cheryl

    Now why can’t all party candidates think like that? She has it right and so do the Conservatives?

  • Maggat

    I’d vote for her at the drop of a hat, or whatever.

  • ntt1

    they are so lucky, our local green party candidates tend to board space ships and disappear or run short of lithium and reveal the full depth of their madness. Dizzy lizzie fits in well and her scant sanity renders her a one eyed queen in the party of the blind

  • Shebel

    Correct me if I am wrong— but – are not a lot of Mulcair’s candidates just a bunch of ditzy kids that tossed their hat into the ring- and never ,ever thought of actually winning.
    And Canadians would actually want this bunch running Canada and be playing with a few Trillion dollars ?
    This is almost as stupid as letting Justin loose in the Mint.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Pretty much nailed it on all counts.

    • glasnost

      I don’t think it will be as easy a ride for the NDP in Quebec this time around.

      • Shebel

        Quebeckers are basically predit able and stupid.
