Episode 29 – Millennials aren’t so bad with Karl Moore

Épisode 28 – Le hijab ostentatoire avec Sondos Lamrhari

This week, The Goldwaters present a special episode in French. English text follows.
Pour beaucoup de Québécois, le débat sur le port de symboles religieux est un débat abstrait. Pour Sondos Lamrhari, c'est très réel.

Et si le Parti québécois ou la Coalition Avenir Québec obtient le pouvoir lors des prochaines élections, elle pourrait être contrainte de choisir entre son emploi de rêve pour un corps de police québécois et sa foi. Cependant, Lamrhari est déterminée à être la première officière de police de la province à porter le hijab et croit qu'il favorisera le rapprochement avec les communautés musulmanes. "Pour le moment, ça ressemble à ça. J'aimerais vraiment devenir policière au Québec. "
