A Canadian political leader has been told to cut off his turban to look more Canadian during a campaign stop.
Reporters filmed the encounter between NDP leader Jagmeet Singh, a practising Sikh, and a man in Montreal, Quebec.
Mr Singh says cordially that Canadians “look like all sorts of people” before walking off. The man wishes him well.
In June, the province of Quebec passed a law banning certain civil servants from wearing religious symbols at work such as the turban, hijab or kippah.
Mr Singh is the first visible minority leader at the helm of a major federal political party in Canada.
His NDP is fighting to retain its 14 seats in Quebec, though opinion polls show the left-of-centre party trailing in the province ahead of the country’s general election on 21 October.
