Don't stone women to death, burn them or circumcise them, immigrants wishing to live in the town of Herouxville in Quebec, Canada, have been told.

The rules come in a new town council declaration on culture that Muslims have branded shocking and insulting.

...

Herouxville, which has one immigrant family in its population of about 1,300, is 160km (100 miles) north-east of Montreal.


:lol:

I would quite like to go to Montreal. Or at least I did want to go before I knew that I can no longer burn or circumcise women. It's political correctness gone mad!

Also, apparently you're not allowed to cover your face on halloween there.

Not even if I was as ugly as me and as balding as you.

The first time I read it I thought there was one. It was a much more boring sentence the second time around.

Fortunately none of these directives apply to those of us who were born in Quebec. I'm making nice money on the side beating up, stoning and burning wives of immigrants. I'm thinking of starting my own business if things keep up.
