The Quebec Government Wants To Ban Women With Burkas From Using The STM Bus And Metro
A very controversial amendment.
Over the summer, the Quebec government was discussing a new bill amendment that made a lot of people angry, and tomorrow it will finally be voted on.
What makes Bill 62 so controversial is the fact that it would amend the province's religious neutrality laws.
If it passes, then the government would be able to require that a persons face be uncovered when using public transportation. That means women who wear Niqabs or Burkas would not be allowed to use the STM anymore.
And it's not just rules for people who want to work for the government. These rules would affect anyone trying to get access the city's public services.
How do feel about bill 62?
