Hijab or hoodie? Laval woman feels HSBC Canada pictogram needs clarifying
by Jesse Feith
Murielle Salari's husband couldn't quite tell how he felt about it at first — other than it seeming a little odd — so he pulled out his phone, snapped a photo and sent it to his wife.
"What do you make of this?" he asked her last Monday. The photo was of a pictogram Salari's husband, a non-practising Muslim, noticed in the window of an HSBC Canada branch on St-Martin Blvd. in Laval.
The pictogram shows three images that are meant to depict the bank's dress code for customers, which is enforced for security reasons: no hats, no hoods, and no sunglasses.
But that's not how Salari, 61, interpreted one of them.
