Some animals are more equal...

Than others...

-- EDMONTON -- A Hutterite community in Alberta that believes willfully being photographed is a sin has won the legal right to have a provincial driver's licence without a picture.

Madam Justice Carole Conrad wrote in yesterday's 37-page decision that driving is important to the Hutterites' communal way of life, and the lack of photo-free licences violated their Charter rights.
Where would we be without the sacred Charter of Rights... I mean, besides having one set of law that applied equally to each and every one of us?

What do they do for passport pictures, or do they never leave the country? So much for more secure drivers licenses that some provinces are contemplating.

say goodbye to driver's licence pictures of unveiled muslim women while you're at it.

hmmm... that should make for an interesting night at the polls... if you can vote with a veil, how do electoral officials keep track of who's been in already?
