Quebec will become North America's first province to ban its citizens from wearing face coverings
The Quebec National Assembly moved to adopt Bill 62 on Wednesday
The bill bans anyone from covering their face while giving or receiving public services such as medical care, public transport or using the library
The legislation passed 66 to 51 with the majority Liberal party pushing the law
Montreal's Mayor Denis Coderre denounced the bill, saying his city will be affected the most by the new legislation
Critics also say that Bill 62 targets a small minority for nothing more than political gain
Supporters of the bill say the law enshrines respect for public discourse and communication
