Conservative hypocrisy: a tautology

| Disqus Comments


Time once again, dear readers, to juxtapose:

Ladies and gentlemen, I am pleased to join you this morning. This is an opportunity to exchange ideas on a key priority for our government: establishing an Office of Religious Freedom.

We announced our intention to do so in the Speech from the Throne on June 3. And I repeated our commitment most recently at the United Nations General Assembly this past week in New York.

This office will be created to promote and protect freedom of religion and belief, consistent with core Canadian values such as freedom, democracy, human rights and the rule of law. Most importantly, it will demonstrate that Canada truly is a free society.


New Canadians will now have to show their faces when swearing the oath of citizenship, Immigration Minister Jason Kenney announced Monday in Montreal.

The new rule, which takes effect immediately, means Muslim women will now have to remove their niqabs, burkas and other veils before crossing that final hurdle toward becoming a Canadian citizen.
