Council’s newest social justice warrior promotes ‘Islamophobia’ agenda
by Sue-Ann Levy, Jan. 25, 2018
TORONTO — We were already lectured about our alleged Islamophobic tendencies a little more than a year ago when controversial bus shelter ads were released during the first phase of a $400,000 ‘Toronto for All’ program.
And, of course, there’s the very controversial M-103 anti-Islamophobia motion passed in the House of Commons last March.
Now council’s newest social justice warrior, Councillor Neethan Shan, wants to lecture us about Islamophobia again.
Shan, a heavily union-backed NDPer who came to council via trustee roles on the Toronto District and York Region school boards, intends to put forward a motion at council next week designating Jan. 29 as a “Day of Remembrance and Action on Islamophobia.”
That day marks the first anniversary of the tragic shooting at the Islamic Cultural Centre, a mosque in Quebec City. A lone gunman opened fire while people were gathered to pray, killing six and injuring 19.
