Seriously???? When does this crap stop? If you chose to come to Canada because you thought it would be a better place, stop trying to make it the same as where you came from.
This is what was in the SUN this morning and this is what I wrote. I bet they don't print this one...

Edmonton police working on hijab option for uniform

Once again Political Correctness is running amok. Why is it that Canada has to bend to immigrants who choose to move to this country? Yes, some would argue that we are all immigrants but those who fought for us in WW1 and WW2 fought under the Canadian flag. They did not fight under the Canadian flag and the Polish, Italian or some other flag. They were immigrants but fought under one flag, that of Canada, their new chosen country.
Were any one of us to move to a country, say in the middle east, where such head wear is commonplace, and we chose to join a local police or military force, we would be told in no uncertain terms what the uniform would be. Yet when these various ethnicity's move to Canada, they want, no insist, that we change our uniforms (among other things) to suit them. That is unacceptable.
The other aspect to this is that some would say the head wear has a religious connotation. Well then, religion has no place in the uniforms of our police or military and hence should not be allowed. And if you allow the Hijab, then what says a Burqa is disallowed? And for those of you who would say this headwear does not have a religious component, then I rest my case. It has no place in our uniform code.
Enough of this Political Correctness foolishness. It's time to "grow a pair" and say enough is enough. We have more important issues to deal with.
