Canada bans burqa

Effective immediately, Canadians will have to remove face veils like the Islamic niqab or burqa while taking the oath of citizenship, Immigration Minister Jason Kenney announced last Monday in Montreal. Kenney said concerns from citizenship judges that some Muslim women wearing the garments may not be reciting the oath in the ceremony prompted him to change procedure. He also announced measures to boost language testing for new immigrants.
