The Canadian government finally put a stop to the wearing of the niqab during citizenship swearing in ceremonies.

For a secular country (leagally, ethically, morally) I think this is the right decision, even if it's late in coming. 

What do you think?

I can't speak for Canada but here's my take on this.

I think anyone who wants to be a citizen of a country needs to abide by their laws- otherwise, why go there?  My Italian and Irish family members who came here a few generations ago gladly accepted and adhered to the laws of the US.  If someone tries to trump our laws with their religion- sorry, go somewhere else.  I am all for people coming here to better their lives, but if they can't accept our laws and secular government, find another theocratic country to live in - there are plenty, especially Muslim.
