Uproar in Canada over face-veil ban

Proposed ban to bar veiled women from receiving public services triggers debate.

In the Canadian province of Quebec a furious public debate has erupted over Muslim women who wear the niqab – face veil.

Out of over 200,000 Muslims in Montreal in Quebec, only a few dozen women wear the niqab, but under a proposed new legislation they could be barred from receiving public services. 

Al Jazeera’s Rob Reynolds reports from Montreal where the debate has divided the Muslim community.
