Preview Clip

The Court of Quebec is standing by the decision of one of its judges who refused to hear a woman's case unless she removed her Islamic headscarf. In the wake of public pressure, the Court vowed to stand by the ruling made by a Montreal judge. Premier Philippe Couillard offered a measured response as the case is still before the court, but says he's disturbed with it. (The judge told Rania El-Alloul inside a Montreal courtroom she had to remove her hijab before the court would hear her case and when she refused, the judge postponed it indefinitely.)
