Sikh Religious Daggers Allowed in Alberta Courtrooms


In a landmark decision, Alberta is allowing daggers in court rooms.

The decision allows for Sikhs to carry their ceremonial kirpan daggers, into courtrooms.

Kirpans can’t be longer than four inches, and Sikhs are required to carry them, by their faith.

Under the new policy, Sikhs will be required to let security know that they have their kirpan with them, and it must stay sheathed.

Ontario is considering a similar policy, as well.
