Sikh man fighting Ont. helmet law optimistic

A devout Sikh who is fighting a traffic ticket for not wearing a motorcycle helmet while riding his motorcycle is optimistic a Brampton, Ont., judge will rule in his favour.

Baljinder Badesha, 39, says choosing between his turban and a helmet is denying him the right to religious freedom.

"Everything's good -- we hope everything goes well," Badesha told reporters after leaving the hearing on Tuesday.

After hearing from both sides, the judge reserved his decision until March 6.
