Quebecers worry about burkini debate
France's top administrative court has overturned a controversial ban on burkinis, but some Quebecers are concerned about the bathing suit becoming a source of tension on beaches and public swimming pools.
Elsy Fneiche, who lives in Laval, says it's her personal decision to wear a burkini because that is what she feels most comfortable in. The burkini is a full-body swimsuit that is similar to a wetsuit, meant for women who normally wear the hijab.
"My partner doesn't get involved. He doesn't think it's up to him to have an opinion on the burkini or how I dress," Fneiche said.
