Aquatic centre's windows pose problem for Muslim women
by Michael Lightstone and Monique Muise

The new aquatic centre at Halifax's planned $40.5-million Mainland Common Centre will include two 25-metre pools and lots of big windows designed to handle natural and artificial light.

That's because modesty and privacy are paramount for these religious women.
