Description

This photograph captures a woman arguing with Joanne Siska during a protest against Sharia law in Toronto. At the time, the Ontario government was considering allowing Shariah law to be used as a form of faith-based arbitration in the province. Premier Dalton McGuinty rejected the proposal and moved to prohibit the use of all religious-based tribunals to settle disputes in the family law context.
