Trudeau: Opposition To ‘Islamophobia’ Law An Example Of Sexism

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau suggested that some of the opposition to Islamophobia legislation was an example of sexism.

Speaking Friday to a Women in the World conference in Toronto, Trudeau took aim at the official opposition Conservatives and accused them of not recognizing gender equality.

A private member’s motion was passed in March by female Member of Parliament Iqra Khalid, that identified a “public climate of hate and fear” in Canada and demanded that Islamophobia be treated as a hate crime and be subject to prosecution under the Canadian criminal code.
