Flyer at Western U: “Jewish terrorists” killed Muslims in Quebec mosque attack
Following the discovery of an anti-Semitic flyer which was circulated on campus at Western University in London, Ontario last week which attacked the Jewish community, the Student Council (SCWU) issued a letter condemning the flyer as “hate speech”.
The flyer, sent by the Canadian National Independence Party (C.N.I.P.), accuses Jews for the murder of 6 Muslim worshippers at a mosque in Quebec in late January, blames “Jewish Zionist terrorists in Israel” for assassination of Muslims in Palestine. It demands that all Zionists in Canada be tried as terrorists and imprisoned.
Two Threats to Freedom of Speech: M-103 and C-16

Today’s Riot-Prone Mobs Are A Product Of America’s Cult-Like Education System
Let’s face it. Today’s street theater is the culmination of decades of radical education revision. The radical Left’s systematic attack on the study of Western Civilization has essentially been an attack against the study of any and all civil societies. It is an attack on the features that make a society civil and free. Those features include freedom of expression, civil discourse, the Socratic method of figuring out truth, value of the individual, and a common knowledge of the classics of history and literature that help us understand what’s universal in the human experience.

In the first nine months of 2016, there were 56,446 applications filed for citizenship, a decrease of nearly 50 per cent from the same period a year earlier, when 111,993 applications were submitted.
The figures are included in a briefing by former Immigration and Citizenship director general Andrew Griffith prepared for the Senate social affairs, science and technology committee, which begins hearings this week on Bill C-6, a law to amend the Citizenship Act.
Griffith’s brief points to a broader pattern of declining naturalization rates. He warns that a growing part of the population may not fully integrate by becoming citizens due to financial or other barriers and that could lead to marginalization.

Sandra Solomon slams Trudeau, Muslim leaders for not condemning anti-Jewish hate speech
In a video posted to Facebook, Solomon said: “This is an imam in Quebec who is openly preaching hate and genocide and destruction of Jewish people. I am Palestinian myself and I’ve been listening to this anti-Semitism since I was 5 years old. They taught me that I have to hate Jews, and we have to wipe them off. Anti-Semitism is rooted in the Koran and in the teachings of Mohammed, the founder of Islam.”
