Quebec passes Bill 62 that bans face veil

The province of Quebec in Canada has passed a contentious law that would make it illegal for Muslim women, and other individuals, who cover their faces to receive public services, including riding public buses. The legislation on religious neutrality also known as Bill 52 was passed with a margin of 65-51 and will require citizens to uncover their faces in order to avail or give public services. It applies to all provincial and municipal employees including doctors, nurses, teachers, daycare workers and public transit workers. The law has received serious criticism from Muslim women living in the province who feel “targeted” by the establishment.
