The first Mountie to wear a turban retires from the RCMP
There wasn’t very many options I had to tie a turban and so that the turbine would be the color of the year of the Stetson. So there wasn’t really a lot of creativity required. If you will bow ties, Dylan flips three decades, he served as an RCMP officer, it’s filled with newspaper clippings photos and on the first page, a schoolyard poem, it’s much better they’ll decide if we ride camels in the Musical Ride in all traditional peace in the new Royal raghad Mounted Police from Corner Brook to Medicine Hat, forcing John to Kitimat Dawson Creek to Fort McMurray all be there. You’Ll smell the curry wow. It was a poem written by a child passed around at school in anticipation of Dylan’s classroom visit. But it’s a dark reminder of the Prejudice the officer face throughout his career, some of it ignorance, some of it simply hateful racism and it began before Dylan even started policing. After passing his tests in 1989, the twenty-three-year-old prospect was told he couldn’t start as a mountie. Unless you agreed to shave his beard and lose the turbine used to abandon his articles of faith, I don’t think it will. It will make any difference at all. As far as my job requirements golf, it is not going to be a hindrance as far as becoming a police officer and doing my duties as a police officer, the controversy across the country. We don’t have much left of our tradition. A petition circulated calling for the exclusion of turbans in the RCMP, the Calgary businessmen distributed pins after the rules were changed and Dylan started his career and Quinnell. He experienced Prejudice from the community and from within the force he learned his partner had told other officers. He wouldn’t back him up cuz. He wore a turban. This caused me a lot of concern to eat only because all you got is your partner and if your partner say I’m not backing you up well, there goes your life. I just a sergeant stepped in to deal with that situation. Dillon’S career. The four saw him involved in high-profile cases, including investigations into serial killer, Robert Pickton and the Air India bombing, or when I first got involved there in just a sports I was entrusted. I wasn’t included in some of the meetings until I had a conversation with the police, so it wouldn’t be able to stop Sergeant at the time, and I asked why I was included in some of that some of the meetings, and I was told that it was Because it was concerned that I might compromise at 5 after 7 years as second turbines mountie. Finally, the ranks Dylan says it’s kept, getting better and better since then, and despite the challenges he faced, he leave the RCMP with a note of sadness. Truly is a family and I’m very many other professions where you know you walk into a building or a home, not knowing. If you’re going to come back out inspect your Dylan is leaving a different RCMP than the one he joined and some of that change. This. to him, Rafferty Baker, CBC news story;
The first Mountie to wear a turban, Baltej Dhillon, is retiring from the RCMP after nearly 30 years with the force. Dhillon formally applied to the force in 1988 and passed all the entrance requirements. But at the time, the RCMP dress code banned both turbans and beards — key components of his Sikh faith.
