Oh Canada

This is just heartrending to read. I'm skeptical that we need to actually 'outlaw' Sharia law here in the US but every time I read something like this up in Canada it gives me pause. Ok, so this isn't happening here but what is in place to stop it? Is there any cultural will to stand up and simply say that this isn't acceptable? Or have we somehow acculturated Muslim immigrants so well that we don't need to worry? I'd like to think so. I hope so. But . . . wow.

Also, I can't help but wonder if anyone has asked Margret Atwood about this connection between this and her famous novel 'Handmaiden's Tale'.
