In vote, province's public areas of Muslim women have been brought up to reveal ir faces to use civil services. The law was accepted against 51, with 66 votes.

By law, doctors, teachers and casual care workers and public servants and official agencies were banned from closing ir faces with service areas, veils or something else. With a recent change in public transportation, municipal services were also banned.

Quebec State Justice Minister Stephanie Vallee argued that law was issued on grounds of communication, identity and security.

"This is a bill about living toger in harmony, a bill about se rules, and clearly shows neutrality of state," Vallee said.
