POLL: Canadians Overwhelmingly Oppose Public Servants Wearing Niqab Or Burka

Most other symbols, including Crucifix and Star of David are widely accepted by the Canadian People.

A new Angus-Reid survey shows widespread opposition among Canadians towards public servants wearing a Niqab or Burka while on the job.

There is also substantial opposition to the Kirpan, the small dagger carried by some Sikhs.

Here are the key numbers on whether Canadians would support public servants wearing the following religious symbols while on the job:

Crucifix – 79% support, 14% oppose

Star of David – 78% support, 15% oppose

Nun’s Habit – 71% support, 22% oppose

Kippa – 68% support, 24% oppose

Turban – 64% support, 30% oppose

Hijab – 62% support, 33% oppose

Kirpan – 21% support, 68% oppose

Niqab – 17% support, 75% oppose

Burka – 15% support, 77% oppose

These numbers make sense. The dividing line is clearly the full covering of the body and the face, and the carrying of something that (while the Kirpan is considered ceremonial), is still technically a knife.

Additionally, while the elites have tried to call opposition to the Niqab and Burka ‘Islamophobic,’ there is a clear difference between views on the Hijab (majority support), and the full face/body covering Niqab and Burka.

Canadians are making it clear that there are some things we don’t find acceptable or compatible with our tradition of freedom and individual rights. And the Niqab and Burka being worn by a public servant are simply not acceptable to the vast majority of Canadians.

Instead of lecturing us about how we are ‘supposed’ to think, it’s time for politicians to listen and have the courage to defend Canadian Values.

I have no problem with Sikh men wearing the kirpan as their ceremonial dagger….if I….a Christian…..can wear a combat knife (bayonet) or carry a folding tactical knife in my pocket…..

Expecting Trudeau and his twisted Liberals to stand up defend and support true morals and values, is like expecting Trudeau to actually keep us safe, defend our borders , our soverignty, our freedoms and to actually enforce the laws on the books.

Trudope is about to sign our sovereignty away to the globalist UN Dec/10/2018 and I’m not hearing enough about it.Scheer opposed it on the floor but really nothing much in the media because of the little socialist dictator giving them our 600 million.Remember government has NO money.Seems like this guy does what ever he wants with little or no response from the hard working law abiding taxpaying citizens.Do we need a brexit vote province to province to stop this evil socialist dictator.Lets make some call to conservative mp’s and see where we stand.Trudope can do a lot on damage in… Read more »

Government employees should just wear hoodies – like the rest of the thugs, thieves and “gangstas”.
