We’re often told that hate crimes against Muslims are on the rise,andthat anti-Muslim bigotry is a growing problem in Canada.
This is the argument behind the Trudeau government’s dubious motion, M-103, which seeks to use a “whole-of-government approach” to eliminate the undefined and politically-loaded concept of “Islamophobia”.
“The government should recognize the need to quell the increasing public climate of hate and fear; condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination,” reads the text.
But is it true there is an “increasing public climate of hate and fear”?
