The topic arose in The Honourable the Senate, when The Honourable Senator Nancy Ruth C.M. (Cluny, Ontario) brought the issue up in question period. The honourable senator mentioned that her taxi driver, earlier that day, had been asked by a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to identify his religion at a checkpoint.
Senator Ruth raised the issue with Senator the Honourable Marjory LeBreton P.C. (Ontario), the Leader of Her Majesty's Government in the Senate. The Leader of the Government was asked whether the Government had directed the RCMP to seek to identify citizens' religions in the performance of their duties; the Leader of the Government committed to return to the Senate with a response at a later time.
