Montreal professors don hijab to protest secular charter
Two non-Muslim professors are wearing the hijab to work to protest against the Parti Québécois' secular charter and its proposed ban on religious symbols for teachers, daycare workers and other public sector employees.
CBC Daybreak host Mike Finnerty spoke with Concordia University history professor Nora Jaffary and McGill University political science professor Catherine Lu about their decision to wear the veil.
Jaffary is still wearing the veil to campus, while Lu wore the veil for a week in September to stir discussion in her classroom.
