Ontario premier against Islamic law in his province

The premier of Ontario said Sun that he won't let his province become the first Western government to allow the use of Islamic law to settle family disputes and that he will move to ban all religious arbitration.

Ontario's provincial government has been reviewing a report recommending that Shariah, or Islamic law, be allowed to settle family disputes like divorce and had said it would soon make a decision, Seattle Times informs.

"There will be no Shariah law in Ontario. There will be no religious arbitration in Ontario. There will be one law for all Ontarians," Premier Dalton McGuinty told The Canadian Press.

The proposal to let Ontario residents use Islamic law for settling family disputes drew protests Thursday in Canada and at some of its diplomatic sites in Europe.
