Montreal protesters don surgical masks, scarves over new face-covering law

Protesters wearing surgical masks and scarves over their faces lined up Friday along a Montreal bus route to rally against a new law that would force anyone using public services, including Muslim women wearing a niqab or burka, to uncover their faces.

    Yes, Canadian feminists have taken time away from killing unborn babies, to support traditions that subjugate women. The alliance of feminism and islam ramps up. Funny old world isn’t it?

      It actually makes me question their mental state. They should go full solidarity and wear a burkha… they wouldn’t last a day or two.

    That law is an assault on my human rights to make bank withdrawals!

    The women might as well practice covering their faces because if islam is left to grow unopposed in our nation, it will force them to cover up, sooner or later: There will be no more choice for them.

      I’d rather be dead than live under sharia law or have Islam dictate what I can wear or what I can do or not do according to its psychopathic leaders.

    Just imagine the howling if a Catholic priest decided women had to wear black bags over their face.

    None of these protesters are francophone. They’re all white, anglo liberals… some of whom, although they now reside in Montréal, are from outside of Québec ( usually Ontario). They signal their virtue on the backs of the franco majority. After a few years of slumming it in shitty, broken french, they grab their degrees and their Value-Village, liberal arts diplomas and they move back to Toronto. Too bad the number 80 bus doesn’t go all the way to Cornwall. Un vrai gang de joyeux tetons!

    They’ll do that right up until some Mohamedan blows up the Metro…

    Let the federal Liberals try to override this Quebec law.

    If they do so it will cost them a lot of Quebec seats in non-anglophone areas in the 2019 federal election.

      I’d pay to see that! Get the beer and popcorn out!

    • Trudeau won’t.

      Those votes in Quebec are precious.

    What is so hard for these retards to understand? You take off the mask when inside. Outside wear whatever but if you want to participate in society you show your face. Quite simple.

    • Bla Bla

      Well, you did mention the ‘retard’ part – they do not have the capability to understand anything except that of sleeping, eating, and crapping… lol

  • bargogx1

    Fools. Even those masks they’re wearing cannot cover up that smug leftist look they all seem to have on their faces.

  • Yo Mama

    Watz you dont know is that those commies rubbed the insides of those masks on a muzzies butt before puttin’ them on to affirm their dhimmi status!

  • Bla Bla

    oooooh, they are so edgy and cool! I want to be just like them! How about they just off – better yet, let’s pull their damn welfare checks that they are most likely receiving because everyday working canadians don’t have time for such bullshit.

  • Now that they’ve done their “solidarity” thing to show how “progressive” they are, how will Quebeckers take banning bacon, alcohol, French, comedy festivals, jazz concerts, women walking to work each day, Jews – you know – things that exist in Quebec that the Islamists don’t like?

    Don’t worry. This whole issue will die a sudden death once the Shia /Sunni wars start in Canada and we see Burka clad suicide-bombers going into each others mosque for Jihad to slaughter hundreds for allah.
    Muslims will then demand the Burka and Niqab be banned.

    For now they demand to wear them because it hasn’t hit them at home yet…….just give it time and once the body parts of little children are strewn around the mosque these muslims will finally wake-up as did ISIS when they banned them because of suicide-bombers.

    If were lucky…..the first Burka bomber will pick the SCOC building and wipe out the useless quasi-god white liberal Judges that got us to this point where they now MAKE the Laws instead of enforcing them to rule on Cases.

    I finally decided to read the article even though it was from the CBC. What a load of crap. Yeah, the bus driver who honked in approval of the protesters is most certainly a Muslim. As for the concern that bus drivers will be forced to make a judgement call, another load of crap. No judgement call required: you have your face hidden = no ride, full stop. As for the oh dear it singles out Muslims, so what. I say good on the Quebec government, which most certainly on this occasion, listened to the majority of Quebecers.

    If I saw someone wearing a surgical face mask, I’d be wondering if it was for their benefit or mine. Either way I’d keep a respectful distance, they’re not that effective after a short period of time.
