Alberta has come up with a policy to allow Sikhs to wear a ceremonial religious dagger called a kirpan in courthouses.
Under the Justice Department policy, a person must tell security officers they have a kirpan and wear it in a sheath, under clothing.
The blade of the kirpan can be no longer than 10 centimetres.
