Justin Trudeau on Burkinis

“We should be past tolerance in Canada… In Canada, can we speak of acceptance, openness, friendship, understanding? It is about where we are going and

what we are going through every day in our diverse and rich communities,” he said, before dropping a dose of irony: “Tolerating someone means accepting their right to exist on the condition that they don’t disturb us too, too much.”

Trudeau also pointed out that “the respect of individual rights and choices” should be key in matters such as these. This is such an important distinction to make because, in case you need a reminder, women’s rights aren’t just about the right to strip down. They also encompass a woman’s right to cover up.

Essentially, to wear whatever makes her feel comfortable.
