Classy newspaper

The director of elections in Quebec recently stated that women who wear the burka or niqab are allowed to vote without revealing their faces. This caused a firestorm of protest and the director has since reversed position. (Somehow what was legal one day was illegal the next.)

It's nice to see that the Journal de Montreal could be counted on to address the issue with taste and courtesy for both sides. (See top of newspaper)

The director general of elections used his discretionary powers to change the rule because of this reaction from the newspapers. He was worried that some crackpots would cause problems on election day. You can read his decision here.

I'm just glad that Youppie is allowed a vote.
