As more and more Canadians realize how hateful Muslims and the theocracy called Islam is and how dangerous Muslims are when they “radicalize”, sympathizers have been working behind the scenes in the Canadian Parliament to subvert their citizen’s freedom of expression by proclaiming “critical speech” involving Islam and Muslims should be a crime.
The problem here is that the new motion gives Islam “special treatment” over other religions.
Update March 24, 2017: See list of how MPs voted here.
OTTAWA, March 23, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — With the strong backing of Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government, Canada’s Parliament passed a motion this afternoon 201 to 91 that critics say singles out Islam for special protection.
As was expected, the motion was passed along party lines, with the Liberals and New Democrats supporting it, while the majority of Conservatives opposed it. Two Conservative MPs who supported the measure were PC party-leader candidate Michael Chong (Wellington—Halton Hills) and Bruce Stanton (Simcoe North).
Tabled by Muslim liberal MP Iqra Khalid, M-103 urges the federal government to “condemn Islamophobia” and to “develop a whole-of-government approach to reducing or eliminating systemic racism and religious discrimination including Islamophobia.”
The term “Islamophobia” is nowhere defined in the motion.
MPs passed the bill despite a new Angus Reid poll showing that 71 percent of Canadians would not have voted for the measure.
The poll found that “if Canadians and not their elected representatives were voting, M-103 would fail” with 42 percent voting against it and 29 percent abstaining. The poll found that only 29 percent would vote in favor.
The vote of each MP was formally recorded after about 20 Conservative MPs (the required number was at least five) stood in the House of Commons on Tuesday to demand accountability. Motions are usually determined by which side has the loudest vocal “yes” or “no” response.
Vote No. 237
42nd Parliament, 1st Session
Sitting No. 156 – Thursday, March 23, 2017
That, in the opinion of the House, the government should: (a) recognize the need to quell the increasing public climate of hate and fear; (b) condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination and take note of House of Commons’ petition e-411 and the issues raised by it; and (c) request that the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage undertake a study on how the government could (i) develop a whole-of-government approach to reducing or eliminating systemic racism and religious discrimination including Islamophobia, in Canada, while ensuring a community-centered focus with a holistic response through evidence-based policy-making, (ii) collect data to contextualize hate crime reports and to conduct needs assessments for impacted communities, and that the Committee should present its findings and recommendations to the House no later than 240 calendar days from the adoption of this motion, provided that in its report, the Committee should make recommendations that the government may use to better reflect the enshrined rights and freedoms in the Constitution Acts, including the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
