Quebec Approves Bill 62 Requiring Uncovered Faces For Government Services

The legislation means those who deliver or receive government services must show their faces, which would require the removal of face coverings such as masks and the niqab or burka.

Bill 62 has passed in Quebec. Members of the Quebec Liberal Party voted in favour, while the opposition parties voted against, because they want an even tougher law.

As I recently reported, “While some have criticized the law, both main opposition parties in Quebec want the law to be even tougher, showing a strong consensus within Quebec that people should not be allowed to hide their identity when receiving or delivering a public service.”

Good policy

While the elites are already criticizing the policy, it is simply common sense. In this country, we expect that people will show their faces when receiving services, and it’s totally reasonable to apply that to everyone in our nation. Other provinces, and the federal government should bring in similar legislation to Bill 62. After all, policy should be decided by the common sense of Canadians, not elitist political correctness.
