MONTREAL (CP) - A Montreal city police faces disciplinary action over a controversial song about accommodating minorities.

The title of the French-language song means "That's Enough Already."

It says Quebec culture is being spit on and suggests those who don't like the way things are should head to the airport.

"Reasonable accommodation, we're no longer able," says the song, which was not commercially produced but is circulating on the Internet.

"We like to accept ethnic (minorities), but not at any price."

The song cites specifically a controversy over a Sikh boy carrying a ceremonial kirpan knife to school and a Hasidic Jewish synagogue that wanted the windows of a gym covered to block the view of women exercising inside.
