Stockwell Day Supports Blaney Bill To Hassle Muslim Women

At this point I also intend to support a new Private Member's Bill from MP Stephen Blaney. It would require anyone voting in a federal election to not have their face covered for identification purposes.

Note the touch of equivocation in this, however. I suspect the Tories will let the bill die quietly, as they have all earlier legislative attempts in this direction. Its flaws are quite fatal, and if the government really did what was necessary to make it even marginally sane (by requiring photo ID to vote for everyone)...well that would be a hassle to non-Muslims, wouldn't it? And to solve a problem--vote fraud--that doesn't really exist in this country.
