Justin Trudeau’s Canada sure has some interesting priorities. While women living in Islamic countries are frequently beaten or killed for not covering up properly, the West is busy fighting to incorporate Islam into every aspect of public society. Allowing the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to wear hijabs does not affect the vast majority of Canadians; however, it is representative of the Sharia normalization movement, which is trying to force its way into the lives of ordinary citizens.
In an effort to further push the leftist agenda, the West shows no bounds when appeasing the Muslim minority. According to one source, no members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) had asked to wear the hijab, therefore confirming the obvious: “This is intended to better reflect the diversity in our communities and encourage more Muslim women to consider the Royal Canadian Mounted Police as a career option,” says Scott Bardsley, spokesman.
As Austrian-British philosopher Karl Popper once said, “Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them.”

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police have given official permission to female officers to wear hijabs along with their famous British-style red uniforms in hopes that the stunning measure will boost recruitment of Muslim women and promote diversity.
“The commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) recently approved this addition to the uniform,” Scott Bardsley, a spokesman for Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale, told AFP on Tuesday.
“This is intended to better reflect the diversity in our communities and encourage more Muslim women to consider the Royal Canadian Mounted Police as a career option,” he added.
Police in Britain, Sweden, and Norway, as well as some US states, have adopted similar uniform policies, Bardsley said.
The decision to allow hijabs was first approved in mid-January, but was officially announced on Tuesday, according to local daily La Presse, which cited internal correspondence between Goodale and RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson.
Three types of hijabs were tested before one was selected as suitable for police activities, according to the newspaper.
The RCMP has become the third Canadian police agency to allow hijabs to be worn on duty. Toronto police first allowed it in 2011 and Edmonton police give it the green light in 2013, according to Commissioner Paulson’s note cited by La Presse.
The RCMP uniform – a red serge tunic, leather riding boots, and wide-brimmed Stetson campaign hat – is iconic for Canadians and has only undergone minor changes since it was first introduced in the 1800s, largely influenced by British military traditions of the time.
Prior to the uniform change, some 30 officers had asked for the rules to be relaxed for religious or cultural reasons over the past two years, La Presse reported. In most cases, the officers wanted to grow beards.
In early 1990, RCMP Sikh officers were allowed to wear turbans, and general attitudes towards the uniforms have softened since then.
Encouraging diversity appears to be a significant part of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau domestic policy. Earlier on Tuesday, he dismissed the idea of Canada imposing a burkini ban – a hot and pressing issue across Europe….
