Trudeau comments on video offering reward for recording Muslim students praying

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called for the need to “work to ensure that everyone understands [and respects] their neighbours” after a man in an online video offered a $1,000 reward for recordings of Muslim students at any Peel District School Board school “spewing hate speech” during Friday prayer.

“Canadians have understood that our differences are a source of strength, not a source of weakness,” Trudeau said at a press conference in Etobicoke on Friday morning.
