Canada Just Says NO

McGuinty rejects Ontario’s use of Shariah law and all religious arbitrations
TORONTO (CP) – Ontario will not become the first Western jurisdiction to allow the use of a set of centuries’ old religious rules called Shariah law to settle Muslim family disputes, and will ban all religious arbitrations in the province, Premier Dalton McGuinty told The Canadian Press on Sunday.
In a telephone interview with the national news agency, McGuinty announced his government would move quickly to outlaw existing religious tribunals used for years by Christians and Jews under Ontario’s Arbitration Act.
“I’ve come to the conclusion that the debate has gone on long enough,” he said.
There will be no Shariah law in Ontario. There will be no religious arbitration in Ontario. There will be one law for all Ontarians.

Thank God.
