Dear Daniel Pipes...

I totally agree. A few weeks ago I was enjoying a buffet lunch at Bangkok Garden on Elm Street in Toronto, and at the end while I was having dessert two ladies walked in. One of them was wearing a black burqa with only a slit for the eyes. I felt uncomfortable, actually a bit threatened, then disgusted. Our soldiers are trying to free them from this embarrassing attire yet this person boldly showed off her acceptance of subjugation.

Or maybe it was a man since it was Gay Pride week.

I was going to speak to the manager but then I might have been accused of racism or whatever our left have decided to coin.

But what if this person was carrying a detructive device. Canada has been lucky, so far, especially with the assistance of American Homeland Security.
