Millions of Antisemites in Canada a Concern

Frank Dimant, CEO, B’nai Brith Canada issued the following statement:

“The reluctance of police to investigate incidents as hate crimes, the refusal of the Attorney Generals to lay hate crime charges where appropriate, and the antisemitism on campus disguised as anti-Israel rhetoric — excused in the name of ‘academic freedom’ — have all taken their toll on Canadian tolerance.

“We call on the Government to work together with B’nai Brith Canada to combat the forces of racism, antisemitism and bigotry. As Canada’s Foreign Affairs Minister, Minister Baird has seen first-hand the rising tide of antisemitism in Europe and that is why we look to him, as a senior member of this Government, to help counter this direct threat to the well-being of the Jewish community.”
