Argument: Majority of Canadians support Quebec burqa ban

Issue Report: Ban on Muslim burqa and niqab


Gurmukh Singh. “Niqab ban gets unanimous support in Canada.” March 28th, 2010: “Canadians have unanimously supported the niqab ban announced by French-speaking Quebec province this week. After France, the Canadian province is the first in North America to ban the niqab, a top-to-toe dress worn by Muslim women. […] According to the survey – conducted by Angus Reid for the Montreal Gazette newspaper – 95 percent people in Quebec province supported the law to ban the Muslim dress which they say contradicts the liberal, secular values of their society. […] Across Canada – which has 10 provinces and three national territories – four out of five people supported the ban.”
