The hate that Canada’s Islamophobia motion stirred up shows exactly why we need it

Introduced by Liberal Member of Parliament, Iqra Khalid, the motion (M-103), which asked the government to condemn Islamophobia and all forms of systematic racism and religious discrimination, passed 201 to 91 on 23 March.

Non-binding and symbolic, the motion will not trigger the creation of new laws or change laws already on the books.
