Meanwhile in Ontario.....

NDP MPP Jagmeet Singh introduces bill in the Ontario legislature to exempt Sikhs from the mandatory helmet law for motorcyclists. This could force redneck HD riders who don't want to wear a helmet to instead wear a turban . I seriously doubt this will pass but you never know.

The UK allows Sikhs to wear a turban & NOT a correct DOT helmet that everyone else has to wear!!!

Isn't it funny how an MP voted in by Canadian Citizens spends his time looking after his own kind!?!?!?

Can't argue with him representing his own, as long as that isn't all he does. I support electing a diverse group of people to give as many different perspectives and views a chance to be considered and debated.

And after considering it, I think religious exemptions should not interfere with public safety, so nope, bad idea.

The image of rednecks in turbans is pretty hilarious. Be interesting to see how it plays out.
