YMCA near synagogue removes frosted glass, installs blinds
Here's an idea - if something offends you, DON'T LOOK AT IT. If you can't resist, put the blinds up in YOUR windows.
Don't be ruining the view for the rest of us
Montreal YMCA near synagogue removes frosted glass but adds blinds instead
Published: Monday, March 19, 2007
MONTREAL (CP) - A Montreal YMCA is removing frosted glass installed to protect the innocent eyes of young Orthodox Jewish students from scantily clad exercisers but the windows will be covered with blinds.
The YMCA is next to a synagogue where some young male students found the state of undress of some exercisers to be a distraction. YMCA management tried to be good neighbours, allowing a member of the Jewish community to pay to have the windows frosted.
A female exerciser then started a petition and complained about being hidden behind the frosted glass.
The YMCA decision is not the only ruling on adapting to minorities raising hackles in Quebec these days.
The series of controversies over reasonable accommodation for minorities has led Premier Jean Charest to order an inquiry into the matter.
