A step in the right direction for Quebec

Quebec bans niqab from government services -
MONTREAL—Muslim women will need to uncover their faces from now on if
they want to deal with the Quebec government, according to landmark
legislation tabled Wednesday in the province.


That inquiry pointed out one lingering inconsistency in the argument
of those who claim to be defenders of a secular state: the giant
crucifix that still hangs on the wall of the provincial legislature.

Wednesday’s bill was silent on the Bouchard-Taylor commission’s
recommendation that the crucifix also be removed.
