CANADIANS will now get their Headlines in a Headbag

Ginella Massa has become the first Muslim woman donning the Islamic headbag covering her hair, known as hijab, to present a major newscast in Canada.


Al-Arabiya  “Guess who’s filling in as anchor for tonight’s late newscast?,” Massa, who works for CityNews, wrote on her Facebook page, adding: “This is not just a big deal for me personally — As far as I know, no woman in hijab has ever anchored a major news cast in Canada.”

In early 2015, Massa scored another first, becoming the first hijab-wearing television news reporter.
