87% of Quebec residents support Bill 62, yet the arrogant elitist establishment acts like it’s some sort of fringe proposal.
It’s been very interesting to watch the criticism of Bill 62, the law requiring that people uncover their faces to receive or deliver government services.
The law has massively strong support throughout Quebec. The Quebec Liberals passed it, and the two main opposition parties only voted against it because they thought it should be even tougher.
The widespread support among Quebec’s political parties matches the almost unanimous support for Bill 62 among the Quebec public. An Angus-Reid poll from October 4, 2017 showed a whopping 87% of Quebec residents supported the Bill.
62% support it strongly, while 25% moderately support it. Just 4% strongly oppose it.
Yet, politicians across the political spectrum, from Justin Trudeau, Jagmeet Singh, to even the Ontario PC Party, have opposed the legislation to varying degrees. And much of the elitist media has been condemning it, seemingly totally ignorant of what people really think.
Representatives of the people have the right to express the will of those they serve
There was a time where I would have criticized Bill 62 out of a sense of political correctness. But, like an increasing number of Canadians, I’ve realized that the values that underpin our society must be upheld by those who claim to serve the public. If a country, or a province, is unable to declare what their values are and can’t require people to show their face when dealing with servants of the public, then where can we ever draw the line on what we will and won’t accept as a society?
If the government can’t enforce what 87% of the people want, then that government is no longer a democracy.
Yet, those like Trudeau, Singh, and even apparently some in the Ontario PC Party, have taken an elitist position that would arrogantly ignore the will of the vast majority of Quebec residents. Of course, we know that those same politicians are too cowardly to speak out against Female Genital Mutilation, or condemn nations where women are horribly oppressed. Instead, they play the virtue-signalling game while ignoring the will of the people.
We can bet that the numbers outside Quebec of those who support legislation like Bill 62 would be similar to the 87% figure. You can already see some of the gap from the Twitter polls below:
We can also bet that our own so-called “leaders” in the elitist establishment would ignore the common-sense views of Canadians, and instead impose their own arrogant elitist political correctness.
This growing gap between the elitist establishment and the Canadian people is a big concern, since it shows that those in power have decoupled themselves from an actual connection with the views of most Canadians. That connection must be re-established, or our country will continue to head towards a serious crisis of political legitimacy, which could erode our national unity and put the country at grave risk.
