Canada: La Presse article fails to mention terrorist links of Islamophobia report authors


On August 24, La Presse (Montreal) published a text announcing the launch of a guide on Islamophobia for Canadian schools by the National Council of Canadian Muslims, the Canadian Human Rights Commission and the Winnipeg-based Islamic Social Services Association. However, the text nowhere mentions the links that exist between the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM, formerly CAIR-CAN or CAIR-Canada) and radical Islam since its incorporation in 2000 and even before as CAIR-Montreal. This lack of information deserves to be corrected and that is what we intend to do with this article.
