Mr. Speaker, it has been six months since the World Sikh Organization reached out to Liberal ministers about a prejudiced beard policy against Sikh and Muslim RCMP officers.
No other jurisdiction in Canada, including the Peel region, has implemented this ridiculous policy. It is wrong, and they know it. However, the minister refuses to stand up for ethnic minorities, simply saying it is under review.
Why does the minister continue to drag his feet, and on what date will he end this blatant discrimination against these Canadian heroes?
