After TVA revealed some troubling facts about advisor to Public Safety Canada Hussein Hamdani, Minister Steven Blaney’s office sent a statement to notify the Quebec-based TV network that the advisor had been suspended pending the results of an investigation.
“These allegations are very disturbing. The participation of this individual to the Cross-Cultural Roundtable on Security’s activities has been suspended immediately pending the results of an investigation. Although allegations that this individual has relationships with radical Islamism have been circulating for a while, we thought that he could have a positive influence at promoting Canadian values in the Muslim community. It is now clear that it may not have been the case.”
