Tarek Fatah Won't Like It

Toronto Police has opened its doors wide to all applicants in an effort to be more representative of the communities it is serving.
In this ongoing effort, it is also seeking to enlist its first hijab-wearing officer, Superintendent Cyril Fernandes had told Focus this summer.

The message is: Toronto Police allows hijabs, as it does turbans.

Actually, I am assuming this is a bit of hyperbole on Superintendent Fernandes part.

After all, "Police Academy" was filmed there.

Must be a slow news day.

Toronto Police has opened its doors wide to all applicants in an effort . . .

Wow. Toronto finally catches up with every police force/govt. agency/school/employer in Canada

Good job Toronto!

Double wow. Such inclusivity!

I reviewed Tarek Fatah's book, Chasing a Mirage (2008), here. I think you'll find it interesting.

It is valuable for us to look at all sorts of opinions, and it is also vital to know when information if factual or falsehood.
