Muslim-only housing in Montreal: Does this reflect “Canadian values”?

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Kellie Leitch is running for the leadership of the Conservative Party, and her signature policy is something so basic, I’m stunned that it’s controversial: Leitch wants a test for new immigrants to Canada, to make sure they accept Canadian values.

As in, equality of men and women; tolerance for other religions, that sort of thing. You know: the separation of mosque and state. (If you agree, please sign our petition here...)

But now a new message has come, from Montreal:

Nabil Warda has plans for an 80-home housing development, but only for people who meet his test, for Muslim values. 

I haven’t heard a peep on this from Justin Trudeau, or Maryam Monsef and the other Muslim MPs in the Liberal party.

Why? Because they do not oppose it.

In Toronto, as we have shown you before, there are already Muslim-only subsidized housing compounds — where if you’re not Muslim, you’re banned, even if you’re poor and disabled.

Yeah, Canadian values. They’re just as important as money matters, and taxes and jobs.

American values were important to American voters in the U.S. election.

I suspect Canadian values will be important to Canadian voters in the next...

NEXT: Senior Editor Joel Pollak and I discuss the hysterical media attacks on Steve Bannon, now that the publisher is going to work for Donald Trump in the White House.

THEN: Sheila Gunn Reid gives us an update from the UN climate change conference in Marrakech, where she's been covering the blatant "progressive" hypocrisy — and climate sceptic Marc Morano's run in with security.

Jewish housing became an issue in Toronto in he 1940’s. But Montreal seemed to be the hotspot. Jews were allowed to live in a tolerant city.

The late Leonard Cohen was part of all this and it is astonishing how he promoted his tolerant city.

Some people think that this is human tolerance. But for Montreal welcoming the Jew is seen as tradition.

“I don’t think some city councilor with developer payola packed up his vanity hole is any authority on the charter or the human rights act or the provincial housing discrimination laws – a government and its projects cannot discriminate on the basis of religion or race or ethnicity – this exclusive public housing rule clearly breeches all 3. "

True, but according to the article it is a done deal. By creating these “provisions” they are able to circumvent existing laws.

“The only way to find out is see what the SCC says – as for activists who want to take on this breech of discrimination laws – crickets chirping”

Crickets chirping is indeed the sum of the entire situation. What a mess the future generations will inherit.

No test is necessary. Don’t allow muslims at all. Find me one country in the entire world with a muslim population over 10% that isn’t a strife ridden hell-hole. Just one. Which muslim country would you move to permanently?

Moderate Retardarian, you post utter nonsense but that is to be expected from an illiterate Libtard. Please crawl down back to your hole but remember:

Mr. Donald Trump is PRESIDENT of the United States of America. So chew on that asshole. If you are a stickin muzzie, have a bacon sandwich asshole.

TRUMP wins!!!!!

I hope that Canadian values are important to Canadian voters in the next election.

I wish Breitbart would come up to Canada. We need more Conservative journalism here.

The climate change elite have the policy: “Do as I say, not as I do.”

Ezra, the poll results that you like to trumpet asked about “making the screening process more onerous” – not testing for Canadian values. Asking if Canada should test for Canadian values (or making the screening process more onerous to limit the possibility of terrorists entering the country) is like asking people if they like apple pie. The practicality and effectiveness is another matter. However, it could be quite simple, Are you a practicing Muslim? If the answer is yes, then entry would be barred since the teachings of Islam, ipso faco are contrary to Canadian values. But someone having terrorist intentions wouldn’t lie would they?

Moderate, I am unsure how you can claim to be so intellectually superior to the rest of us when your spelling and grammar suck so much.

“I would think that a racially or religious restricted public housing project would be illegal by the government’s own anti-discrimination law”

One would assume, but apparently that is no longer the case – see Ontario

TORONTO — A Toronto city councillor says a provision that allows only Ahmadiyya Muslims access to a city-subsidized apartment building is not unfair.
… On Jan. 1, the city of Toronto entered a five-year agreement with Ahmadiyya. City council agreed to establish a mandate to restrict tenancy to “members of the Muslim Jama’at.””

Moderate idiot what is wrong with you?I bet it’s hard to spell.Next time you have something to say put your hand up and put it over your mouth you bias prick.If you don’t like CANADA F O.

Nnaumbua said, “Hateful’s here because trying to rile us up is his only source of joy.”

Whew! What a sorry life that bastard must have if posting such hate here is only source of joy in life.

It’s difficult to understand how someone can have so much penned up hatred. It must eat him up inside, hollow out his soul and leave him empty and alone. A sorry existence, that is!

Moderate libertarian…
I thought we put the racist card to sleep a few threads ago when I tried to explain it to you through the adoption of children around the world by white parents who would unselfishly give love and their resources to disadvantaged children of all colors and creeds all around the world.
Evidently you’re a slow learner so I will bring something different for you to the forefront that once again and once and for all should put your bigotry to sleep.
No more race cards can be played against the whites.
I guess that’s what they call people like me who wish to preserve their language and culture and heritage (all descendants of European people) from the onslaught of forced immigration policies by gov’ts who no longer serve the will of the majority of the people who elected them.
Even through nonviolent means of expressing our concerns we watch the country we grew up in change before our very eyes in ways that favor immigration/ importation policies over established Canadian families and values.. The information is all out there published in non biased non derogatory platforms.
 Nothing good will come of becoming a minority in our own country by the mass importation of people who have no wish or desire to assimilate into a gentle and non war like culture whose goals and visions for the future are not the same as our own,but will bring their cultures and problems with them that will bear the ugliest fruit when they are the majority and have political power through their own representatives in Parliament..
The blacks have NAACP, black TV, all black beauty pageants, all black colleges with funding and scholarships only for blacks and more..
If a white person even dared to have an all white TV program designated as all white or an organization that was dedicated only to whites as militant as the NAACP every bleeding heart liberal in the world would be screaming racist and looking for blood. 
I don’t believe that any race in the world should have one privilege over another, the white race included to that but that we should stick to our own , support and promote ourselves as passionately as all the immigrants in this country are allowed to do.
We have been taught to hate ourselves as white people and accept the importance of all other cultures over our own and stand by and watch helplessly as our people disappear from history in a attempt to homogenize our race as a distinct people and our Nation along with its sovereignty… 
As a country we cannot absorb 250,000 immigrants each and every year… except for one year a while ago which was 500,000.. We are importing a medium size city into the country each and every year for more than the last 15 years.
We do not have an abundance of jobs to justify these incredible amounts of people as well as the negative impact that  occurs  when you have too many people looking for too few jobs. The sociological ramifications from this type of event will not be completely understood until it’s too late to do anything about it.
If  concerns about my nation and my peoples makes me a racist then I  plead guilty and believe that word should be reinterpreted to something that more resembles the right to speak in defense of their own people who are persecuted.

Islamic values reign superior in Canada. Under Trudeau, we’re a Sharia compliant country. There is no argument.
In the next election, we’ll have a choice to continue the way of the EU (towards Islamic society) or Trump’s America. Or will we? I’m afraid the next leader of the Conservatives will follow the same Sharia path as Trudeau (unless Leitch wins).

Diversity within the monsque?

Haha, good for Joe Pollock!

The real reason they don’t hold conferences in western countries, is their fear of the free press. They wouldn’be be able to strong-arm the media and kick them out!
I’d like to see inside the conferences if possible. Who’s are the guests, what are they saying etc.

I visited the UAE about 25 years ago. It is the most beautiful arab country ever. BUT, no arabs “work” there. All manual labour is Filipino, or other poor countries. If you lose your job, you have to leave country in 7 days. Sounds good to me! We had people trying to stowaway on our aircraft to leave the place.
It is very beautiful, but don’t scratch below the surface. You won’t like what you see.

I’d like to section of a part of Edmonton for Mormon’s only. How would I go about doing that? And, I want everyone to go to jail if they mock or scoff my beliefs. And, anyone who looks at our Temples are subject to paying a tax, which we’ll call a tithe tax. !0%. Any objections? Careful! Be very careful about what you say, now.

Moderate Libertarian…why are you here? Your Echo Chamber is the CBC, Grope and Pail and Toronto Star. You may be fine with women being told not to dress “immodestly” and people being told to drink alcohol behind closed doors but actually, this is NOT Canadian Values. So what is your real name, Mohammed Abdul?? Do tell!
