Quebec’s face-covering law heads for constitutional challenge

Civil liberty advocates have launched a legal challenge over the constitutionality of Quebec’s face-covering ban, arguing it “directly infringes on the freedom of religion of individuals.”

The law passed last month requires people to uncover their face to receive public services under certain circumstances.

“Such blatant and unjustified violations of freedom of religion, as well as of the quality guarantees of the Quebec and Canadian charters, have no place in Quebec or Canada,” the plaintiffs argue in a court filing.

Islam has no place in civil society.

    But it isn’t religious.

      I know just as Islam is not a race, but none of that seems to matter in the postmodern fantasy world.

    • Lightstream

      You are right. It’s an old tribal custom and not in their koran. Stupid politicians and judges.

  • canminuteman

    Not letting azteks perform human sacrifice infringes on their freedom of religion, but we don’t let them do it.

    • David Murrell

      I get your point, but don’t give the federal Liberal government any ideas.

    It’s like water torture….. drip by drip constantly over a period of time and you scream for it to stop. Islamic Law fare is built on the same principles. Islam will never assimilate and integrate, but you will be expected to bend to them. Eventually, one day, you will find yourself ruled by them. There is no religious basis for the face covering and it is part of Western Culture that you reveal your face to those that you are interacting with so that they will know you. Anything less is idiocy.

    Any case to the uber-left-wing Supreme Court will result in a 9-0 vote in favour of niqabs. So if this good law to succeed, Quebec will have to use the notwithstanding clause.

      If Quebec is still Québec then they will.

    more sharia creepin’ up our arses ..

  • Let Trudeau and Quebec go head-to-head over this. It won’t end well and that will be a good thing:
