Thanks to Ms. Mylène Crête and Mr. Hugo Pilon LaRose, from La Presse, for reminding us of a July 2019 article by M. Amira Elghawaby ( s://bit.ly/3Dma67N), co-signed by Mr. Bernie Farber (both of them are board members of the so-called Canadian Anti-Hate Network). In this article (https://bit.ly/3WIYN0r), she called Québeckers Islamophobic, imagine. So, in a so-called anti-hate network, we are allowed to be hateful against some Canadians, but not others. She wrote: “Unfortunately, the majority of Québecers appear to be swayed not by the rule of law, but by anti-Muslim sentiment“.
If Ms. Elghawaby chooses to be ignorant and mean to Québeckers, we can understand. It is her right to freedom of expression. However, for our Prime Minister to appoint her to the position of Canada’s first representative to fight against Islamophobia tells us about his government’s top priority: legally challenging Québec’s Bill 21 by all means, including political nominations like this one.
