Clancy: Keffiyeh ban has no place within the Ontario Legislature

May 6, 2024

QUEEN'S PARK — Ontario Greens Deputy Leader Aislinn Clancy released the following statement after walking out of question period in solidarity with other MPPs who were removed from the Legislative chamber for wearing a keffiyeh.

“I walked out of question period today because I oppose the ban on the keffiyeh, which is still being upheld within the legislative chamber.

Discrimination against any cultural group has no place within those walls.

I stand in solidarity with all those working to uphold the right of all people, including Palestinians, to wear their cultural dress within the Ontario Legislature.”
