    A minor point of information: "1990 Solicitor General Pierre Cadieux gives ruling to allow Sikhs to wear turbans in the RCMP" - that's 27 years ago. You can scarcely remember anything before then, you were still at school.

    Sixteen years before that they allowed women in for the first time. Did the women dress in the existing uniform? Should they have?

    Ah.

    Very good it looks on them, too.

    Where was I? My argument seems to have evaporated.

    spot you flatter me with the age thing ;P I am not so young as to not remember that change.
    It is a uniform of status. Canadian pride and status. A standard. A uniform look, etc.
    The women wore and wear skirts as that is part of the uniform, Pants have not always been proper for women to wear. A skirt is part of the status versus a religious statement.
    What next rainbow caps to advertise sexual preference.

    The Sikhs wore and wear turbans as they are forbidden as an article of faith to cut their hair, and their uncut hair needs to be managed. The turban itself is a practical solution versus a religious statement. There's no religious command that a Sikh should wear a turban. I don't think you could design anything more practical for outdoor wear when your hair is waist-length but if you did, Sikhs would happily wear it.

    I'm confused,
    what governs them to not cut their hair? If they can't cut their hair then why do we have to change our protocol on the job.

    I can't get a job in certain industries because I have a visible tattoo, nobody changes protocol for me.

    rolls eyes and giggles.

    I noted the reason earlier in the thread: Sikhism is a recent faith invented by one person at one moment and that person chose to include, among several ritual demands, one relating to hair: "At the Amrit Sanchar in 1699, Guru Gobind Singh explained the reason for this: My Sikh shall not use the razor. For him the use of razor or shaving the chin shall be as sinful as incest". It's as arbitrary as the ten commandments are to Christians and Jews, but once it's been cast in stone it's unavoidable for all time.

    As for why do we choose to adjust, the same reason as for skirts. Because we choose to be inclusionary. Would you rather women hadn't been allowed to join?

    Re: European court Hijab Ban ?

    to put it bluntly
    A turban was never a part of the uniform. Because they believe in their way does not mean they should change what we believe in our way.
    Why is it forced upon me and my country to change to make everyone else happy?
    I am slipping into generalizations now, but we here are throw rugs and we let everything be changed, and are slowly loosing our identity and our history and our culture for the sake of others....
    I have rerouted this thread enough.

    bah my edit post does not work,
    further more you quote a belief..... plain and simple so there are many "beliefs" out there but they should not alter other peoples culture and protocol. And is a "belief" that different from religion, or cultisim?
    If you wish to come to a new country to live, I believe it is respectful to integrate not force your ways upon others.
