Your “unhappy” morning news roundup for Monday, September 10th, 2007:

PM Stephen Harper is unhappy with Elections Canada's decision to allow veiled women to vote in the upcoming by-elections, and says Parliament might have to force them to rethink their decision. Meanwhile, a British journalist who converted to Islam after being jailed in Afghanistan in 2001 thinks the whole debate is a veiled form of Islamophobia.

Quebeckers are unhappy with premier Jean Charest: 60% of us have a negative impression of him, according to pollster Leger Marketing.

One Montreal resident is unhappy with Internet provider Radioactif's plan to blanket the Plateau with wireless internet, fretting about the health effects of Wi-Fi. Though Health Canada and the World Health Organization say that Wi-Fi is safe, at least one expert thinks that continuous exposure to Wi-Fi radio waves could cause symptoms of attention deficit disorder in children.

Another high-end hotel is on the way in Vieux-Montreal, this time on an abandoned former Royal Bank property on rue Saint-Jacques.

Harper's barking up the wrong tree. The Elections Canada decision is just a clarification of the law Harper himself voted for. He should be mad at himself for including these loopholes, not at Elections Canada:
