The worker in the niqab sat at a second table with other children and did not interact with the minister. The children and minders then cleared the room for the briefing.

Asked afterward when the YMCA started hiring women in niqabs, senior vice-president for child and family development Linda Cottes said the “Y” has never excluded women wearing the niqab. Asked again when such hiring started, she said only, “We are inclusive.”

Nursery school teachers are welcome to wear the full-face Islamic veil, or niqab, at the Young Men’s Christian Association of Greater Toronto, says Egyptian-born president and CEO Medhat Mahdy.

  1. Kleine kikkertjes die ze aan het koken zijn. Opgezet in het pannetje lauw wordend water van het onderwijs en zo mooi geconditioneerd dat ze straks niet meer blikken of blozen als hun oogjes er kokend en wel uit knallen.
