First test of Supreme Court's new face-veil rules imminent
It is a long way from the grandeur of the Supreme Court of Canada in Ottawa to the grey, gritty neighborhood in north Toronto where a courthouse shares space with a Swiss Chalet chicken restaurant, the office of an MP and a catering company.
