Canada: Jews, Muslims Anti Ban on Religious Articles


Jews and Muslims in Canada have united in their efforts to work against a bill that would ban the display of any religious article in the public workplace.

Should the law pass, one of the effects would be the demand that thousands of Jews remove their head coverings during work hours. 

"If this law passes, it will be an outrage," said one disgruntled hareidi citizen this week. "We are speaking of hundreds and hundreds of (religious) Jews -- doctors, accountants, lawyers, and more," he said.
