A Quebec judge admits the ruling violates employee rights but says health and safety still takes precedence.

    As a turbaned Sikh myself, I still believe that the whole community is not in agreement over this issue. On one hand, hundreds of thousands of Sikhs fought in the world wars and they did so without helmets. On the other hand, health and safety should take precedence over religious accommodation, undoubtedly! Don't think there is an easy answer to that. Personally, I would choose a hard hat for my own safety but I'm not judging others who don't agree with it.
    My only hope is that this doesn't become another issue to beat the "immigrants don't fit into our culture" rhetoric drum.

    Thank you Singh for your comment. It is very insightful.
    I do agree that at the end of the day the worker's safety is of the utmost importance.
