Ottawa wants postponement of ruling that quashes niqab ban, Report

On Wednesday the government announced its plans to appeal yet another court decision that tosses out the ban on face veils from citizenship oath ceremonies.

Earlier in the week the Federal Court of Appeal upheld a decision that stems from Zunera Ishaq’s challenge of the Conservative’s 2011 ban.
