In preparation for the Olympics, Vancouver transit has announced the introduction of bomb-sniffing dogs to its mass transit system. The announcement has some Muslims worried, since they consider dogs unclean and avoid contact with them. Muslim cab drivers in that city have gone as far as refusing blind passengers in their cabs if they have a seeing eye dog. Some Muslim residents have asked for the dogs to be trained to remain 30 centimeters away from them.
Perhaps the dogs to should be trained to avoid sniffing Muslims all together. After all, who would expect a devout Muslim to carry explosives?

You don't need a fear-sniffing dog to recognize why.
