If religious accommodation is job #1...

...where's the McSlippery government on, for instance... Christmas trees......special rules for special people

Ontario government employees have been told to be “sensitive” and accommodate their Muslim co-workers during the month of Ramadan when they fast and pray from dusk to dawn, according to a confidential memo.

A document called 'Ramadan: The Muslim Month of Fasting" that was sent to Ontario public service managers and forwarded to 120,000 employees, has angered non-Muslim workers who will file a complaint alleging discrimination in the workplace.
So much for separation of Church and State... but, then again... that's how things work... in Dalton's emerging socialist paradise.


UPDATE: Diversity... the ongoing struggle
hey, wait a minute"No mini-mosque for you!!!"
"A proposal by a Muslim employee to turn the room used by Ministry of Attorney General employees on the 12th floor of 655 Bay St. as an Islamic prayer room was rejected earlier this year, according to concerned workers who feared dismissal if their identities were revealed."

LAST WORD: Meanwhile, back at the ranch...

Are these the folks Dalton's bending over backwards to please?
will of allah
"Shaima Ghassaniya was found guilty Tuesday of driving without the government’s permission."

Are they going to be equally sensitive to Christians who fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday?

You can't drive, but you can vote. Saudi King Abdullah in "his merciful wisdom" has granted the franchise to Saudi women.

Which is not as enlightened as it sounds - husbands can now command their four wives and the daughters to "vote my way... or else".
