"Quebec bans face covering in public services, raising worries among
Muslims"

So does this only apply to "Muslim looking" clothes?

A wicked ban. How's the ordinary MIDDLE-CLASS CANADIAN bank robber going to make a living?

Women with covered heads are doing so at their own risk...

Nuns cover their heads, and so do women attending Catholic services.

Quebec has to be careful differentiating between burqas and niqabs.

Under a burqa the wearer is totally unidentifiable. Under niqab the wearer may be recognizable to family and friends.

Other forms of hijab such as chador and dupatta do not hide the face.

Ya. Problem is that Mohammed's dictum was that women should "dress
modestly" ... full stop.

Wearing a visible statement of faith is not modest.
