I am an immigrant. It never occurred to me to impose the ways of my old country on Canadians. Mind you, I came before the Charter and so I placed responsibilities and obligations to rights, and I always had enough decency to to know that when you are in Rome, do as the Romans do.

But .. wasn't all this swathing in voluminous yardages of fabric supposed to make sure that men don't have 'THOSE' thoughts about women ???? You mean ... OMG! IT DOESN'T WORK!!!! Almost 1400 years of voluminous swathing only to find out it fails as an 'anti-attraction' device!

I only have to look into my wife's eye to what she is thinking.
Even if she had one eye showing I'd still know my fate for making tortillas on her new ceramic top stove.
