In 2011, the immigration minister Jason Kenney issued a new policy manual stating that candidates for citizenship must remove any kind of face covering when taking the public citizenship oath.
Why? Something about Canadian values, showing your face, nothing to hide, etc.
So the Conservative Party of Canada feels it is wrong for new citizens to hide their face while taking the public citizenship oath, yet have no problem hiding their candidates for political office from debates, the media and their constituents.
There's a word for that...
