Niquab vs. airline security

The Globe and Mail is reporting about an growing uproar over a Youtube video depicting two passengers who are allowed to board a plane without revealing their faces. The incident has sparked debate over ‘political correctness’ and the role of burkas and niquabs in Canadian society. The Minister of Transport has called for a review of the incident, asserting that the incident “poses a serious threat to the air-traveling public.” Presently, airline staff are required to verify the identity of all passengers, though there are special procedures for niquab or burka wearing women, who are isolated and checked by female airline staff.
