Driver reinstated after cap flap
by Ali Zafar
TORONTO - A bus driver in the Greater Toronto Area has been reinstated after being suspended March 17 for refusing to take off his kufi -- an Islamic cap -- while on the job.
McGregory Jackman, a newly hired driver, said he was humiliated when an inspector with his contractor, Veolia Transportation Inc., sent him home for donning the kufi at work.
"Just having to walk off the bus by someone telling you you can't work because of your religious conviction, that was tearing me apart right then and there," said the father of two, who was suspended for a week without pay.
