Canada passes motion to silence critics of Islam

OTTAWA, March 23, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — With the strong backing of Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government, Canada’s Parliament passed a motion this afternoon 201 to 91 that critics say singles out Islam for special protection.

As was expected, the motion was passed along party lines, with the Liberals and New Democrats supporting it, while the majority of Conservatives opposed it.

Tabled by Muslim liberal MP Iqra Khalid, M-103 urges the federal government to “condemn Islamophobia” and to “develop a whole-of-government approach to reducing or eliminating systemic racism and religious discrimination including Islamophobia.”

The term “Islamophobia” is nowhere defined in the motion.

Canada: Bring on the Islamization!

Justin Trudeau is a stupid man who in his desire for Muslim votes has given the hatred central to Islam license.

No one — neither media, nor politicians — even bothered to ask whether there is a significant connection between the virulent Jew-hatred being preached in mosques and the disproportionately high occurrence of hate crimes against Jews. Instead, the entire Canadian parliament is preoccupied with banning “Islamophobia”.

Canadians should oppose the anti-Islamophobia motion, M-103

Useful Idiot Melanie Joly and Islamist 5th Columnist Iqra Khalid Lie About M103

Canadians, regardless of their political affiliation, should stand firmly against M-103, the motion by liberal MP Iqra Khalid that urges among other things the government to “develop a whole-of-government approach to reducing or eliminating systemic racism and religious discrimination including Islamophobia.” M-103 is not a bill, but its natural evolution could be a law criminalizing any speech, opinion or action that promotes so-called Islamophobia.

When she tabled her motion, Khalid cited her childhood experience. “ When I moved to Canada in the 1990s, a young girl trying to make this nation my home, some kids in school would yell as they pushed me, ‘Go home, you Muslim’ — but I was home. I am among thousands of Muslims who have been victimized because of hate and fear,” she said.

Anti-sharia petition emerges alongside M-103 debate

An anti-sharia law petition is gaining votes on the Canadian government’s e-petition website at the same time as an anti-Islamophobia motion faces a vote in the House of Commons.

Liberal MP Iqra Khalid had the final say Tuesday evening as her controversial motion faced its second hour of debate.

“M103 is not an attempt to create sharia law,” Khalid said as she brought up what she labeled “outrageous claims” made by critics of the motion.

The motion calls for a study to look at tackling racism and discrimination but has generated concern, and even multi-faith protests across the country, for singling out the phrase Islamophobia. As I’ve written in several columns, the vague phrase is used as a tool in Muslim majority countries to justify punishing people for blasphemy.

New book Under Siege looks at Canadian governments targeting Christians

From lawyer Don Hutchinson,

Don Hutchinson is a husband, father and grandfather who graduated from Queen’s University in Kingston and the University of British Columbia Faculty of Law a long time ago. The author of Under Siege: Religious Freedom and the Church in Canada at 150 (1867-2017), Don is a strategic thinker and planner who has been a member of the Law Society of Upper Canada since 1990. Not coincidentally, he is also a long time member and former board chair of Canada’s Christian Legal Fellowship. More.

The book is a compendium of religious freedom issues. Tellingly, Hutchinson writes,

Can you imagine the Supreme Court being the final authority on matters of religious belief and practice? How would they decide on the issue of holy communion: transubstantiation (the bread and wine of communion become the actual body and blood of Christ) vs. consubstantiation (the bread and wine co-exist with the body and blood of Christ in communion) vs. representation (the bread and wine represent the body and blood of Christ in communion) vs. using grape juice instead of wine vs. those Christians who practise a love feast with a full meal instead of just bread and wine/juice vs. those who do not practise sacramental communion in any manner? (P. 106)

Well, um, yes. We can imagine that. Parliament is setting out on that road this very day, slow but sure, with Bill M103.

The outcome will prove an excellent job opportunity for graduating, otherwise unemployable, campus social justice warriors.

Hutchinson will be speaking in Ottawa Saturday, April 1, 3:00 pm, at Greenbelt Baptist Church, 839 Shefford Road

Reality check: It’s an astonishing fact that the Canadian government is about to pass laws paving the way for a crackdown on “Islamophobia.” Essentially that amounts to criminalizing the repudiation of a religious belief.

Throngs of Christian airheads who claim to believe in freedom of religion voted Liberal. They, at least, deserve all this. What’s annoying is that many will treat the results as a persecution sent by God and compare themselves to genuinely persecuted ancestors. That’s shameful. Their plight will be the result of making churches into therapy groups and entertainment complexes full of people who just want to be liked and do not want to know what is happening.

As Anthony Furey explains, what rejecting Islamophobia really means:

A quarter of the countries in the world have some form of anti-blasphemy and apostasy laws, many of which are fuelled by a broad definition of Islamophobia. For too many of their citizens, opposing Islamophobia means locking up contrarian bloggers or cartoonists who draw the prophet. This is what we’re at risk of normalizing.

The motion was previously slated for second reading in April but is now set to appear in the House of Commons on Tuesday. The scheduling change means the fallout from M-103 will be drowned out by the federal budget, which will be tabled on Wednesday. More.

The Cool, who enjoy mocking Christians (and circumscribing their rights, cf Trinity Western), will soon discover how different mocking Islam will be. But they’ll accept that, of course, so long as they are allowed to continue to assault their preferred, easier targets. They have little to lose at first.

Almost half of Canadians want illegal border crossers deported – Reuters poll

WINNIPEG, Manitoba/OTTAWA (Reuters) – Nearly half of Canadians want to deport people who are illegally crossing into Canada from the United States, and a similar number disapprove of how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is handling the influx, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Monday.

…Canadians appeared to be just as concerned about illegal immigration as their American neighbors, according to the poll, which was conducted between March 8-9. Some 48 percent of Canadians said they supported “increasing the deportation of people living in Canada illegally.” (For graphics on asylum process, immigration poll)

When asked specifically about the recent border crossings from the United States, the same number – 48 percent – said Canada should “send these migrants back to the U.S.” Another 36 percent said Canada should “accept these migrants” and let them seek refugee status.

Morneau says Canada strives to create “inclusive growth” by “sunny ways”

Speaking at the 9th Annual Institute of International Finance G20 Conference in Frankfurt, Germany, Morneau said that Canada tries to create an “inclusive growth” that benefits all as part of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s “sunny ways” policy that is based on a positive and generous response. Morneau warned of “anti-globalization, protectionism and even anti-immigration sentiments” urging the the international community to coordinate the global responses to climate change, technology, conflict and migration.

Carbon taxes will fuel Canadian populism

If and when Canadians give the establishment the boot, it will be over energy prices, carbon taxes and green schemes, more than any other issues.

A recent Edelman poll revealed a whopping 80% of Canadians have had it with the elites. No wonder. There are so many topics where the establishment consensus and its media enablers are disconnected from the concerns of regular people.

It’s time for a tax revolt in Canada

“…So if the rich are already paying their fair share, how come we middle-classers aren’t getting ahead?

How come, for instance, our productivity has gone up by as much 75% since the ‘70s, but our incomes haven’t kept pace? Why aren’t we seeing more of the fruits of our labours? Why can so many of us now no longer afford to buy houses or pay off student loans. Isn’t that because the rich, greedy 1% are keeping more of our money for themselves?

The short answer is: No. The reason middle-class Canadians feel like they are running on an income treadmill is that governments are keeping much greater sums of our cash.”

Canadian bishops blast Trudeau for “cultural imperialism” in earmarking aid for abortion-rights activism

When Donald Trump first took office, one of the more immediate actions from the White House was the reinstatement of the “Mexico City” policy, which forbade the use of federal funds to organizations that promote abortion abroad. Our neighbor to the north took a different direction last week, perhaps in part to address the US change in policy. In a major shift from the policies of his predecessor Stephen Harper, prime minister Justin Trudeau earmarked foreign aid to developing nations for expansion of legalized abortion…

The high cost of illegal migrants

Conservative leadership candidate Kellie Leitch says she will withdraw federal funding for public transit from cities like Toronto that declare themselves sanctuaries for illegal migrants.

“One law for all is a Canadian value,” Leitch tweeted last week. “‘Sanctuary cities’ will be ineligible for transit funding if I am PM.”

Under sanctuary city policies — also adopted by Montreal, Hamilton and London in Canada — municipal governments provide services to illegal migrants, regardless of their immigration status.

Under the “don’t ask” policy of sanctuary cities, they make no effort to ascertain anyone’s immigration status.

Thus property taxpayers are conscripted into paying for municipal services to people who are not in Canada legally.

Libs losing it when dealing with asylum seekers

Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale appears to have gone off his political rocker when it comes to dealing with asylum seekers from the U.S. crossing our border illegally.

Hyper-sensitive to criticism that the Trudeau government is doing nothing to secure Canada’s borders, Goodale told CTV’s Question Period Sunday: “I guess what the Conservatives are saying is maybe we should line up the RCMP at the border, they should all link arms and shoo people away, or maybe [use] fire hoses or whatever, to keep people from crossing at the border.”

Fire hoses?

Canada’s sharia law on hold till April

From Josh Craddock at Citizen Go:

Dear Denyse,

Good news! Your voices were heard and the coalition that formed to pass M-103 is beginning to crumble. As you probably know by know, Parliament DID NOT VOTE on M-103 on February 16th; instead the vote has been deferred until April. … SIGN the petition.

SHARE the petition.

I’m torn. In a way, I would like every airhead Trudeau fan (but that’s redundant, isn’t it?) to experience the full force of oppressive religious law.

Let every abortion fanatic who sneered at evangelical Christians trying to save babies (oughtta be a law against them!) discover religious rule under which it becomes an offence to even make fact-based, defensible statements that offend some religious authorities. Meanwhile,

The Conservatives (Tories) introduced their own motion in response to M-103, which omits the problematic term “Islamophobia” and includes a broad cross-section of religious communities.

Most religious Canadians are not asking for this. Most accept a free society where people can say what they like about the divine.

Unfortunately, the Liberals shot it down. This exposes the fact that M-103 isn’t actually about condemning religious discrimination or systemic racism, it’s about prioritizing Islam and providing it a preferential place in Parliament.

Reality check: On the other hand, maybe the Conservatives are showing unaccustomed cleverness here. At least the potheads on the government payroll have been warned. Sometimes, it is all one can do, besides wait.
