Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi slams the federal Conservative Party for its position on niqabs
by Dave Dormer
Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi has lashed out at the Conservative government for its stance against allowing women to wear a niqab during citizenship ceremonies.
In an interview Wednesday with Evan Solomon on the SiriusXM show Everything is Political, Nenshi — the first Muslim elected mayor of a major city in Canada — called politicizing of the niqab issue "dangerous."
"This is unbelievably dangerous stuff, it's not fun anymore," he said during the interview.
