new law

SHARIA law is already being practised in western Sydney, with hundreds of religious divorces granted by imams.

There was a brief movement to try to get it accepted here in Canada too a couple years back. It was soundly denied. The genaral concensus among the majority of the population was that if they want to practice and live under Sharia law, they should feel free to move back to their home country that supports it. If they choose to stay here, our system of laws will be in effect and will be upheld.
