French-Canadian papers publish Mohammed cartoon following Charlie Hebdo massacre
The killings prompted an outpouring of support, with Montreal protesters taking part in a rally that echoed others in most other major Canadian centres.
A huge “I Am Charlie” banner hung from city hall’s outdoor balcony Wednesday evening.
Not everyone was mourning the deaths at Charlie Hebdo, however.
Genevieve Lepage, president of the Quebec Muslim association, accused the French paper of fuelling the violence.
“Islam is not a threat,” Lepage insisted. “What is a threat is that organizations like Charlie Hebdo promote division and intolerance.”
