Kirpaan update

Supreme Court overturns ban on Sikh ceremonial dagger

The Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that the kirpaan, far from being a weapon, is an essential article of faith, and is legal in every respect. The Court stated that the Quebec argument that the kirpaan might be dangerous was "disrespectful to believers in the Sikh religion and does not take into account Canadian values based on multiculturalism."

Way to go Gurbaj Singh!
