NDP's Megan Leslie brushes off party rifts over niqab debate
by Michelle Zilio
NDP Deputy Leader Megan Leslie is brushing off recent rifts among NDP MPs about the face-covering niqab, saying everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
Leslie made the comments on CTV's Question Period shortly after fellow NDP MP Alexandre Boulerice, one of the party's most outspoken Quebec MPs, said he doesn't think public servants should be allowed to cover their faces.
"I think we can all have personal feelings about all kinds of topics, but if you're a legislator, you have to look at what is reasonable and sound public policy," said Leslie.
