Cowboy voter at advance poll was protesting niqab at citizenship ceremony
Ken Finlayson says he was so frustrated a woman was allowed to swear the oath of Canadian citizenship while wearing a niqab that he covered his face when he voted Monday in an advance poll for the federal election.
Finlayson, 69, said he wore the getup to protest a recent decision by the Federal Court of Appeal that allowed Zunera Ishaq to wear a niqab during her citizenship ceremony.
The Alberta truck driver believes the court decision represents an erosion of Canadian values.
