Despite the vast majority of Quebec residents, and Canadians overall, wanting restrictions on the Niqab and Burka, Trudeau interferes once again.
Quebec’s incoming Premier Francois Legault is not even in power yet, and already Justin Trudeau is interfering.
Trudeau is ‘warning’ Legault about his plan to crack down on the Burka and Niqab.
Legault and the incoming CAQ government say that the Niqab and Burka (among other religious symbols) will be banned for public service workers in positions of authority, including teachers and police officers.
According to the CP, a spokesperson for the CAQ – Genevieve Guilbault – said the following about the plan:
“I think there is a major consensus among Quebecers that we need to have clear boundaries with that,” she said. “We always promised we would make sure to establish those boundaries — and we’ll do so.” Guilbault defended the plan, arguing that the government’s main goal will be “to integrate more and better immigrants that chose to come here.”
The CAQ says public service workers who refuse to abide by the policy will be terminated.
Legault made clear that the incoming government would be willing to use the Notwithstanding Clause to ensure their ban is put into effect.
“If we have to use the notwithstanding clause to apply what the majority of Quebecers want, we will do so,” said Legault.
But now, Trudeau is already interfering. Here’s what he said:
“Trudeau, however, insisted Wednesday that the clause should be reserved for “exceptional circumstances” and only deployed after lots of deep reflection about its broader ramifications.
“It’s not something that should be done lightly because to remove or avoid defending the fundamental rights of Canadians, I think it’s something with which you have to pay careful attention,” Trudeau, who represents a Montreal riding, said in French when asked about Legault’s plan.
“As you know very well, I’m not of the opinion that the state should be able to tell a woman what she can wear, nor what she cannot wear. The Charter of Rights and Freedoms is there to protect our rights and our freedom.”‘
Trudeau is totally refusing to listen to what Quebec voters wanted. He’s standing against Western Values, and throwing his support behind a barbaric set of ideas that are totally out of place in Canada.
Legault should ignore Trudeau, and stand up for what common-sense people across Canada believe in.
