At the clinic the other day I saw a Muslim Afghani family, who had arrived in Canada the week before.

Although the mother wore a hijab, her young daughters wore Western clothes. I asked the girls, aged four and six, to remove their coats so I could examine their chests. The jackets came off, and I noticed the sisters were wearing matching pink t-shirts featuring a prominent image of a bunny. A bunny with a bow tie.


I didn't explain the connotations of the logo. We were using a translator, the waiting room was full, and I focused on the medical issues.

I wish I had said something.
