Mr. Speaker, let me be very clear. We believe absolutely that the Sikh officers, who serve their communities and this country with professionalism and with absolute dedication, need an accommodation so they can practise their faith, as well as continue to serve.
We have raised the matter directly with the RCMP. We expect this issue to be rectified at the quickest opportunity. We have also ensured that there is a comprehensive examination of occupational health and safety requirements and in consultation with the labour board to ensure that this can be done safety. It will be done. We will accommodate those officers.
