Justin responded as I knew he would...
Wearing a turban shouldn't stop you from playing soccer or participating fully in any other activity. The #QSF must drop its ban now.

Subtle and yet vigorous. Plain spoken and yet diplomatic.
Oh yeah, and this from the NDP:
The Opposition New Democrats say they've already urged FIFA to clarify its policy on turbans and have not heard back.
"If they (FIFA) would get their act in gear and respond, everyone would be able to move forward with this," said sports critic Matthew Dube.
Blaming FIFA? Word to my commie brothers: are you trying to court Que. voters or grovel before them? It makes a difference if you want to rule in the name of the whole country.
