Quebec Premier Jean Charest has proposed legislation which, if approved by the National Assembly of Quebec, would deny essential government services, public employment, educational opportunities, and health care to people who wear facial coverings. Bill 94 specifically targets Muslim women who wear the niqab (face veil).Listen to the video below, before I thought that it would only apply to government stuff but apparently it will apply to the private sector as well.
