He was shocked by the questions, said McCarten, who provided a copy to The Canadian Press. Among other things, the questionnaire asked opinions about religious practice, head coverings associated with Muslim women and terrorist groups with mainly Muslim members. The man was originally from a Muslim country, he added. What is your opinion of this subject How would you feel if your boss was a woman How do you feel about women who do not wear the hijab says the questionnaire, which also asked the same question about other head and body coverings, including the dupatta, niqab, chador and burka.A spokesman for Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said the government found out on Tuesday about the existence of the questionnaire from a stakeholder who takes an interest in the work of the department.
