Canada: Muslims reconsider university in Quebec

(Quebec) After the Quebec parliament banned face coverings for anyone who receives or provides a provincial or municipal service, such as public transit, has seen a liberal backlash, the Canadian Federation of Students didn't like this move, issuing a statement condemning the bill and its impact on those who are already studying in Quebec.
"Islamophobia cannot be tolerated in Canada, whether it be in the form of white nationalists shutting down the St. Bernard-de-Lacolle border crossing, or the official passage of discriminatory legislation by the Québec National Assembly. The Canadian Federation of Students remains steadfast in this position and will continue to support those who organize against xenophobia and bigotry across this country. We call on our members to take action by supporting local Muslim organizations and expressing their displeasure about any similar forms of legislation in their regions to their elected representatives."
Then Justin Trudeau followed up by saying it is not the government’s business to tell a woman what or what not to wear and has ordered the government to look into the matter with a view to overturning it. Naturally empowered by the liberal backlash,
Muslims in Quebec have started to play the victim-card in which to strengthen their case for a reversal of Bill 62.
