The Supreme Court's niqab ruling is a supremely ambiguous decision
by David Frum
If it's your job to clean the room, you shouldn't leave a bigger mess than you started with.
But that alas is exactly what the Supreme Court of Canada has done with its decision in the niqab case, more formally known as R. v. N.S.
The reason to have a Supreme Court is to lay down rules of law that lower courts can follow. When the high court answers a yes-or-no question as, "you go figure it out," it abdicates its responsibility and wastes everybody's time.
