OTTAWA — A board member with the Canadian Race Relations Foundation, an arms-length federal government agency with a mandate to combat racial discrimination, is in jeopardy of losing her post over her writings on the controversial website Jihad Watch.
Christine Douglass-Williams has been writing for the site almost since she was appointed to the foundation’s board in 2012. But multiple sources have told The Canadian Press that the government is reviewing that appointment in the wake of an essay that appeared on the site in May.
The post, entitled, “Christine Williams: My personal warning to Icelanders,” was based on a visit Douglass-Williams paid to the country alongside Jihad Watch founder and U.S. academic Robert Spencer earlier this year.
In other news…Justin Trudeau just called you a Racist.
Where you’ll be Shocked! Shocked I tell you, to discover that the Rebel sometimes says unkind things about ISLAM!!!!! (Warning quotes by Bernie Farber and Michael Coren ahead)
The Rebel has had a tough week no question but the only thing stories like this show is how threatened by the Rebel the dead tree media is in Canada. Postmedia is begging for government handouts, the Rebel relies on subscriber fees, donations and online advertising. Government subsidized rags like Macleans are on life support and have about 4 staff left and very few people actually watch CBC news. Meanwhile the Rebel is hiring and the author of the Post’s “Shocking Expose” just can’t understand why the Rebel business model is working and the PC swill of the MSM is failing. But you get the drift.
The MSM in Canada has always been a pretty small pond and it’s shrinking fast, everyone is vying for a well paid government job at the CBC as this latest virtue signaling job application … sorry “scoop” by the NatPo amply illustrates.
Update: Ezra Levant’s response on Twitter is a fun read.
The Crown has asked that Ismaël Habib receive an overall prison sentence of nine years for his attempt to leave Canada to join ISIL.
“He wasn’t going to go there to put bandages on people,” federal prosecutor Lyne Décarie told Quebec Court Judge Serge Délisle on Thursday during Habib’s sentence hearing. “He wanted to participate.”
Habib had made several attempts to get to Syria after he was asked to turn over his Canadian passport following a trip to Syria in 2013. The RCMP decided to create a scenario in which he was tricked into believing he was being recruited into a criminal organization that smuggles people in and out of Canada. Habib, 29, ended up confessing his intentions to the man he believed was the leader of the organization and admitted, while being secretly recorded on videotape, that he wanted to fight with ISIL, the militant jihadist group known for kidnapping people and decapitating them.
Through Ms. Freedlan’s leadership – Canada is focused on ensuring a “progressive trade agenda”. She is demanding a focus on LGBTQ, and specifically transgender rights in the trade deal, in addition to cultural sensitivity aspects, and climate change. Go figure.
I have written about the virulently anti-semitic Muslims in Calgary organization before. In a bizarre bit of politically correct madness the Local Hate Arbitrator decreed that publishing excerpts from the Protocols of the Elders of Zion among other equally vile and widely held Muslim beliefs about Jews wasn’t a hate crime at all! Nor was their more recent hate screed against the Ahmadiyya.
With that background it’s no surprise that they would publish an article extolling the benefits of Female Genital Mutilation and of course find room to blame the Jewish controlled media for bad mouthing this barbaric practice. But then again this is Justin’s Canada and this is mainstream Islam.
The article is entitled “Female Circumcision in Islam” and is subtitled “How Misogynists and Feminists are feeding upon each other to denigrate an Islamic practice that brings untold benefits to women”. Link.
Here is an excerpt discussing the Jewish controlled media and its Islamophobic stance on FGM:
Below is a pdf. of the Muslims in Calgary web page preserved for posterity.
PM Useful Idiot was too busy mincing about to comment.
Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle. 1,477 people live in this little corner of Quebec with its apple orchards, elderberry fields and small wineries. But now 400 migrants can cross the border in a single day.
On the other side of the border is New York. There the language is English. In Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, the language of choice is French. But these days you’re a more likely to hear Arabic, Urdu or Haitian French being spoken here as Roxham Road fills with clots of migrants scampering out of America.
They’re not the leftist American celebs who threaten to leave for Canada if their side doesn’t win the election. Instead they’re the illegal and dubiously legal who got the message from President Trump.
The news that Brad Wall is leaving politics should be seen as emblematic of plain but rare sanity. Power is addictive, and few are the number who either seek or find release from its insidious charms. It ruthlessly flatters the needful egos of many who pursue it with toxic efficiency. Every victory is a telegram from Destiny, and every defeat proof that the times are out of joint. “Happy Rome, to be born under my consulship” is the favoured lullaby of every second-rater who lucked or lurked his way into high office.
While those with serious criminal pasts represent only a small fraction of Somali refugee claimants, the report said the U.S. removal policy was “posing an increased security risk as some of these individuals are fleeing to Canada.”
