And people wonder how Trump got elected

Wonder no more, etc. 

(Even here in Canada.)

    They’re “human” rights. In the social contract, “government” is the stuff we agree to do together for each other. On the most basic of levels, if we cannot be honest with ourselves and each other by showing our faces for those rites and procedures, why should we continue to agree to do those things together. On a basal level, the head coverings are for a reason – they remind men of modesty in their behaviour. If allowed on the most basic of communal procedures, we only confirm that men’s hormonal behaviour is incorrigible. The dichotomy of thought and dissonance is enormous. Either we are, equal, men women, trans, etc in behaviour and expectation . . . or we are not. Best time to be consistent? Right now!

    There is a big gap between supporting Trump and merely being uncomfortable with Burkas, which many Muslims even are (it’s not unusual for Muslim countries like Egypt to ban it outright) and supporting someone who does the crazy stuff Trump does.

    I oppose bill 62 on free speech grounds, but a lot of edia and internet voices are over playing it, acting like people are Islamophobic for not liking a practice that many Muslims themselves reject.

    I’d be interested in knowing more about the methodology used. Was the majority of the Ipsos survey conducted via landline? Very likely. If so, those results would then skew heavily toward the older (generally much more conservative) segment of our population. Draw your own conclusions. Or condemnations. I don’t know anyone under the age of 55 who has a landline. If Ipsos used an online poll the results are even more questionable.

    WK, with all due respect, I’ve think you’ve got it backwards again.

    If the federal government throws everything it has into fighting Bill 62 against the wishes of the people, along with calling those against it “deplorable”, “racist”, “clingers to a white, Christian past” etc. at the top of their lungs, then you could say: this is what elected Trump.

    It’s the blockage of the expression of what the people truly feel is troubling them that elected Trump, and brought the far right to the fore in Europe.

    It might be wise to ask ourselves why do we have no Trump or coherent far right in Canada? A possible answer: we have Quebec. The politics of traditional identity is woven into the fabric of our nation to the extent that even a man like Trudeau who prattles on about “toxic masculinity” and wears Islamic socks won’t go beyond a certain point.

    It inoculates us.

    People in this country have gone insane. All I can say is thank God for the Supreme Court.

    Warren,

    To borrow a Trumpism: sad.

    .. I find this polling ‘data’ & mainstream media mania & gossiping truly disturbing..

    Last I looked this was Canada .. where my distant ancestors arrived with nothing.. Nothing ! Departing Ireland well before the potato famine.. They did great just surviving the trip.. or shipwreck & were probably shivering in rags

    Neither a nyqab.. a body cast, Halloween costume, what happens in the bedrooms of the Country called Canada, or the date of your citizenship & great fortune thereby.. is the purvey of pollsters or political animals or partisan pricks. nada .. nonesville

    .. that’s just a lazy MainMedia fake dog that don’t hunt.. but sure stirs up dirt & political wasterlings.. and wankers.

    The endless black noise of political & popularity polls is tiring.. Hard earned & insightful information for the less than 1% please.. not the contaminated visions of Paul Godfrey

    The mid-to-long range game here is, in 2-5 years when the Supreme Court finds this law unconstitutional, will the then-gov’t of Quebec use the Notwithstanding Clause to keep it anyhow.
