To call the following CTV news report “tendentious” would hardly do it justice. It discusses the recent passage of a law against full-face coverings in Quebec, and the anchor naturally focuses on the injustices that it would impose on those poor, poor Muslim women — who will be “forced” to remain at home.
I doubt that the writers who composed the copy for this report realized the implications of their assertions. If Muslim women are forced to remain at home due to the burka ban, it means that the wearing of the garment is not voluntary, as the Progressives like to maintain. It is mandatory, not optional, implying that somebody, somewhere — presumably a husband, father, or brother — makes these women cover their faces in public.
Otherwise they would risk… What? What does CTV think the penalty would be for a failure to cover up? And who would administer it?
