Richard Martineau a écrit un super article (et lisez aussi son article d’aujourd’hui) sur le port du niqab lors de la cérémonie de citoyenneté canadienne. Il croit que personne ne devrait masquer son visage tout en prenant le serment. Il écrit que c’est le moment où le pays d’acceuil ouvre ses bras aux nouveaux citoyens.
