No Tolerance for You Arieh ....

Once again some jerk official in Quebec manages to embarrass all of us in Canada.

A Jewish taxi driver in Montreal may not display religious artifacts and other objects in his cab
, a Quebec court ruled.

Arieh Perecowicz, 66, a taxi driver for the last 44 years, lost his much-publicized case Feb. 17 when a municipal court upheld several fines against him for having too many personal and religious objects in his car.
Stop displaying religious objects, court orders cab driver

At various times, his decorations included photos of his wife and daughter, small Canadian and Israeli flags and a Remembrance Day poppy.

He was ordered to pay $1,300, about $600 of that for court costs.
