Two months ago, Canadian airports began requiring people wearing religious headcoverings to undergo a secondary search and a test for explosives residue. Vancouver's Raj Hundal outlined his objection to the "discriminatory" practice to CBC News.
The World Sikh Organization expressed its concern, saying that "the revised procedure could potentially lead to racial profiling and bias where Sikh passengers are singled out due to their turbans and unjustly perceived as being security risks."
A hockey analyst for Hockey Night in Canada: Punjabi Edition also weighed in.
That was all on June 16. Then, not even 24 hours later, the policy was reversed when federal Transport Minister Lisa Raitt's office instructed the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) to end the practice.
CBC reported that the secondary search has been stopped on all travel within Canada, and that it will soon end for travelers heading to the U.S.
