There were two social media posts made in the aftermath of Canada’s M-103 anti-Islamophobia vote that perfectly illustrate where the issue is headed.
And make no mistake the issue is indeed headed somewhere. It’s certainly not over now that the vote has happened, which saw it pass 201-91 Thursday evening. If anything, the conversation is only ramping up.
This is because Liberal MP Iqra Khalid’s motion calls for a committee study to be completed within 240 days and report back to the House of Commons with recommendations on how to tackle racism, discrimination and the ill-defined phenomenon of Islamophobia.
