Stephen Harper’s ‘anti-woman’ niqab comment mocked on Twitter with #DressCodePM hashtag

National Post

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Stephen Harper doubled down on his opposition to wearing face veils, this time extending his views beyond what is or is not appropriate at citizenship ceremonies.

“It’s very easy to understand,” said Harper in the House of Commons. “Why would Canadians, contrary to our own values, embrace a practice at that time that is not transparent, that is not open and, frankly, is rooted in a culture that is anti-women?”

He also said “almost all Canadians oppose the wearing of face coverings during citizenship ceremonies.”

Well, as some Twitter users are pointing out, many Canadians disagree. Using the hashtag #DressCodePM, women are asking Harper to clarify whether their own clothing and accessory choices are PM-approved.
