Obi Canual is a 36 year old British Columbia man who believes in the Flying Spaghetti Monster, the one true god who created the earth 4000 years ago, while he was drunk. Obi is a Pastafarian, a religion which dates back to 2005. The Pastafarian religion requires members to wear a colander, so when Obi went to have his drivers licence photo taken he wore his religious head piece.
The photo was taken without a problem, but weeks later Obi received a letter stating that his photo had to be retaken, without the colander on his head. He is understandably very upset and claims that his religious rights were violated.
