OTTAWA -- Multiculturalism Minister Jason Kenney has posted a picture on Twitter showing him wearing a Sikh head scarf.
This comes just days after he said the federal government is ready to go to court over Quebec's proposed charter of values.
The photo was apparently taken when Kenney visited the Golden Shrine temple in Amritsar, India in January.
On the same Twitter page, Kenney also applauds Montreal MP Maria Mourani, who was kicked out of the Bloc Quebecois caucus on Thursday for opposing the charter.
Kenney says he respects Mourani, even though they hold different political views.
The minister told reporters earlier this week that the federal government is prepared to mount a legal challenge against Quebec's plan to prevent public-sector workers in the province from wearing overt religious clothing or symbols.
