Reader comment on item: Ban the Burqa, Allow the Burkini

Submitted by Steven Boldovitch (Liberal member /Toronto East-York) (Canada), Aug 24, 2016 at 13:06

The comparison to a wetsuit is telling.

Despite the terrorist bombings,France has become much less tolerant . How absurd does it get.
It is cutting off its"nez" to spite its face. The word face has a different meaning in French.

Thank you.
