Six months after the Supreme Court of Canada ruled that a Sikh school child could wear a kirpan, a ceremonial dagger, so long as it is kept in a sheaf that is sewn shut, 77 percent of Quebec respondents and 62 percent from the rest of Canada opposed that decision.
When it came to the hijab, a quarter of the rest of Canada respondents would not want their children to have a teacher wearing one, but the negative rate rose to 54 percent in Quebec. For the Sikh turban, 26 percent of those in the rest of Canada opposed, with close to 60 percent of Quebeckers saying no to a teacher wearing one. [Link]
