Can this woman become the first cop in Quebec to wear a hijab?

A 17-year-old woman is at the centre of a heated debate in Canada over whether police officers should be allowed to wear hijabs or turbans.

Sondos Lamrhari is the first student in Quebec to wear a hijab while studying to become a police officer.

A Quebec politician said she should not be allowed on the police force, which has ignited a firestorm on both sides of the issue.

Meanwhile, a law banning face coverings in public services is going to court.
