A turban-wearing Sikh who recently lost his battle to ride a motorcycle without a helmet is poised to challenge the law on the same religious grounds “in the larger interests of all the Sikh community”.

Significantly, the appeal he plans will seek to change the law itself, for all community members, rather than be a lone bid to fight an individual battle against a $110 fine.

“This time I will not fight for myself, but I will challenge Ontario’s law in the larger interests of all Sikhs who want to ride a bike,” 39-year-old Baljinder Singh Badesha of Brampton told South Asian Focus.
