Mulcair standing firm: Will submit to rule of supremacist cult at citizenship ceremonies #elxn42

STE-CATHERINE-DE-LA-JACQUES-CARTIER, Que. — The prospect of losing votes in Quebec hasn’t discouraged Tom Mulcair from digging in on his position that women should have a right to wear a veil at citizenship ceremonies.

The NDP leader fielded more questions Friday about the delicate subject, one day after he clashed with his rivals over it during the French-language leaders’ debate.

The issue is particularly tricky for Mulcair, whose support is based in Quebec.
