TORONTO – Conservative MP Larry Miller voiced his opinion on local radio by telling Muslim women to “stay the hell where you came from” if they choose to wear a niqab during a citizenship ceremony.
The Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound MP was speaking with CFOS Radio call-in show the Open Line with Bill Murdoch when he made the controversial comments.
“Saying it a little harshly, but it’s the way I feel,” Miller said. “I’m so sick and tired of people wanting to come here because they know it’s a good country and then they want to change things before they really officially become a Canadian.”
“I have no sympathy for [Zunera Ishaq].”
Ishaq is at the heart of the niqab controversy. The Pakistani woman is seeking Canadian citizenship but refuses to remove her face covering for the public citizenship oath.
In 2011, then immigration minister Jason Kenney issued a new policy directive for banning face covering garments during citizenship ceremonies.
Debate has been raging on Parliament Hill over the niqab worn by some Muslim women ever since Prime Minister Stephen Harper declared last month that it’s “offensive” to cover one’s face while taking the oath of Canadian citizenship.
Harper went on to say that “almost all Canadians” oppose the wearing of veils during a citizenship ceremony.
On Monday, Miller echoed Harper’s comments saying: “I think most Canadians feel the same.”
