Quebec judge wouldn't hear case of woman wearing hijab
A Quebec judge told a woman appearing in her Montreal courtroom she would not hear her case until she removed her hijab.
In an audio recording of the proceedings obtained by CBC News, Judge Eliana Marengo is heard telling Rania El-Alloul on Tuesday that the courtroom is a secular place and that she is not suitably dressed.
"Hats and sunglasses for example, are not allowed. And I don't see why scarves on the head would be either," Marengo says in the recording.
