Bombardier and the new Muslim ban

The gvt of Quebec gave a billion dollars (in the province with the worst austerity budget in the country) to Bombardier to save it from going under. Then Trump slapped a 300% tariff on planes Bombardier was going to be making and selling to the US. So Bombardier just *gave* a majority stake to Airbus in exchange for access to its manufacturing plants in Alabama. The business press is falling over themselves in praise. Stock in Bombardier rose 26%, despite the fact that Airbus has an option to completely buy out the company now, and Quebec stands a very real chance of losing the corporation entirely to the US. To distract from this egregious behaviour, the Liberal gvt of Quebec has just passed a likely-unconstitutional law prohibiting people from covering their faces when accessing public services, like taking a bus. I am so disgusted by this obvious attack on Muslim women that I am going to start wearing a scarf everywhere I go now, and they will have to forcibly evict me from the bus. It's cold in Canada in the winter.
