Ontario facing ‘̶e̶p̶i̶d̶e̶m̶i̶c̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶I̶s̶l̶a̶m̶o̶p̶h̶o̶b̶i̶a̶’̶ ̶   awakening realism about Islam survey finds

“There is an epidemic of Islamophobia in Ontario. Only a third of Ontarians have a positive impression of the religion and more than half feel its mainstream doctrines promote violence (an anomaly compared to other religions),” said the 51-page survey to be released this week by the Ontario Council of Agencies Serving Immigrants and advocacy group Mass Minority. “These sentiments are echoed with Syrian refugees in Ontario where acceptance often coincides with acceptance of Islam.”
