Secularism police? Aren’t we all, now?

Now that we live in a secular state, the opposition is raising the spectre of secularism police. But the problem isn’t the creation of an actual inspection squad, distasteful though that would be. It’s that some people will now feel vindicated in appointing themselves secularism inspectors, and impose the law beyond even the terms of Bill 21 – like the bus driver last week who decided she wouldn’t stop for a woman in niqab.
