Trudeau comments on Quebec teacher reassigned due to her hijab as result of Bill 21

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Monday commented on the Quebec teacher being reassigned from her teaching duties because she wore a hijab due to the restrictions imposed by the province's Bill 21, saying his thoughts went to parents who had to explain why their teacher "lost her job because of her religion." But he would still not say if the federal government would intervene in the issue.
