Most Canadians support the face-coverings ban, but Trudeau doesn’t

Quebec’s new face-coverings ban reached Canadians across the country.

68 percent Canadians support the ban according to a new Ipsos poll by Global News.

Bill 62 passed in Quebec last week banning face-coverings when receiving public service or entering any government building, service includes riding the bus.

The ban can include the niqab, snow masks during winter or masks worn by extremists groups like Antifa.

Justin Trudeau responded to the ban.

“I don’t think a government should be telling a woman what to wear or not wear,” he said referring to the niquab.

69 percent of British Columbians support the ban while 64 percent support Bill 62 in Alberta for their respective provinces.
