Sharia fines come to Canada! Fight back by helping John Alabi pay his sharia-ticket.

UPDATE: John Alabi speaks with Ezra Levant and thanks donors who helped pay for his legal fight

Published on Mar 4, 2018 - John Alabi is a hardworking immigrant to Canada. His Muslim tenants took him to court for not taking off his shoes in their unit (which is HIS property!) And they won. You asked us to help John appeal this decision — Meet John, a shy, humble patriot who talks to Ezra Levant about his case and thanks everyone for helping him.

We’ve spent over $8,000 preparing the paperwork for the appeal, but the actual hearing hasn’t happened yet. That will surely cost $5,000 to $10,000 or even more. Click here to make a donation now. 

UPDATE: Time to fight the Sharia fine

Published on July 4, 2017 - We heard from Rebel supporters who said they wanted to help John, but not by paying his Sharia fine. So, we went back to John with your feedback. And John has agreed to fight back in the ring against Ontario's Human Rights Tribunal, under one condition: We help him pay his legal fees.

The total cost of his legal fees which include the Request for Reconsideration, Divisional Court and Appeals will be $8000+HST ($9040). Please help pay for the appeal by donating below. 

I thought there was a separation between mosque and state in Canada.

I was wrong.

Now, failure to be sharia compliant -- on your own property -- can result in an enormous fine!

John Alabi, a 52-year-old Ontario man, is being issued a sharia ticket for $12,000 by the province’s Human Rights Tribunal.

His sin? He didn’t take his shoes off in his Muslim tenants’ unit where they prayed while showing the space to potential occupants.

John is a Christian who came to Canada 22 years ago from Nigeria. Since then, he’s followed our laws and worked hard, currently carrying two jobs to ensure his family is cared for. John is the sort of man every Canadian should be proud of; but instead, he’s being labelled a human rights violator-- because he refused to submit to his tenants’ religion!

So now, in addition to paying Walid Madkour and his wife Heba Ismail six thousand dollars each for injury to their feelings and dignity, John must also take an e-course on “Human Rights in Rental Housing.” John told me he's worried his case will set precedent for other landlords who will also have to become sharia compliant.

After meeting with John, it was hard not to be affected.

When did a failure to remove ones' shoes in a Muslim prayer space become against the law in Canada? When did failure to make your property sharia-compliant become punishable by fine? Isn’t there supposed to be a separation of mosque and state in this country? If so, why is Sharia law being pushed on John to the tune of $12,000?

So, this is what we’re going to do: We’re crowdfunding John's sharia ticket.

Honestly, I hate the idea of money going to these Muslim bullies who are inflicting their worldview onto an unwilling individual; but I hate the idea of John fighting this battle alone even more.

Donate below to show patriot solidarity is still stronger than sharia in this country!

Where is the funding at? What is the goal and progress? What happens if the rebel gets more then needed?

Human right is getting more and more controversial when regarding to “offensive by religional reasons”. Why? the boarderline has not been set well.

In this case, well, this is your home since you rent it, no problem. We respect that. “Removing shoes”, hmm, sound not a big deal, I will do that. What the next? “Stone someone”. No, I would not do that. Why? because it is illeagal. Then why do you remove your shoes?

Well, now we have a problem: what you can ask me to do, and what you can not, enen in your home? There must be a clear boarderline. The only boarderline is the law, the Canadian law which decides what action or behavior is offensive to some else. As Bert Dandy said, making noise, seearing, smoking … but, wearing shoes? I would only pay your cleaning fee if you insist this is not right.

Another issue is the “duty of disclosure”. If your religion does not allow me to wear shoes in the bedroom, tell me before your rent the unit. You can not forbid me to do this and that after you occupy this area and create your rules that is against most of my leagal behavior. You can not assume that I know all your taboos and codes that is not commonly known in Canada!

John is dead wrong. When he took the rent it became the tenants’ home not his. He owned the bricks and mortar only. If someone slipped on a wet spot the tenants would be to blame not John. I did not let people smoke, swear or fornicate in my rented apartment. The “quiet enjoyment” of the premises was mine by law. What idiot failed to advise him to apologize and offer a small token of atonement. Ezra you are just a troublemaker. There is a legal probition against promoting or encouraging frivolous lawsuits. It’s called prohibition against champerty and maintenance. I don’t know if you can be fined, penalized or jailed for this kind of trouble-making. Legal mischief at best.

I was going to donate and am still interested in doing so but I want to see the numbers first. How much has been raised so far and how much is still needed? Why is that information not posted here? Is there a link to where I can get that information? Once I see this information I will donate if money is still needed. It’s a great cause but you guys need to post the numbers so people can see what is happening.

These so-called Human Rights Tribunals are a travesty of justice …
… why have trendy-Leftie numpties …
… been allowed to hijack & subvert the decent citizens of Canada in this underhand …
… and really quite SNEAKY manner …???

Here in Britain …
… we also have our own parallel legal system …
… as in 87 Sharia law courts operating here.

This is a direct hostile threat to our democratic history and values.
We need to demand an end to this nonsense … RIGHT NOW …!!!

It’s great this crowdfunding was initiated by Rebel Media. HOWEVER, (as of this writing) whoever is maintaining this effort has really dropped the ball on this.

Yes, part of the above funding appeal has been updated to say that donations will go to the LEGAL FEES, NOT the despicable Sharia law ticket. BUT the REST of the page STILL appeals for payment of the ticket — ESPECIALLY the HUGE link STILL asking for that!! WHAT is going on?? You’re almost certainly missing potential funding through the lack of proper maintenance of this page.

Also, according to posts (below) by those who have donated previously, you do not properly acknowledge their contributions, by regularly updating them regarding the latest news on this case.

It’s FANTASTIC you helped John out, Rebel Media — but how about properly following through with his? You’re dealing with people’s hard-earned money.

It is my hope the above post will very soon be rendered irrelevant, because the page has been completely updated.
commented 2017-07-04 19:59:07 -0400
Completely unacceptable!!! I will never allow Sharia laws to be used here. I would literally go to war to stop this most disgusting ideology in Canada. I don’t have much money to give, but I will give what I can, however I will spill my blood to protect Canada and it’s people from the vile laws of Sharia. The Ontario Human Rights Commission are traitors and should be immediately decommissioned.
commented 2017-07-04 13:47:22 -0400
Am I correct in assuming that monies which had already been donated to help John pay the $12,000 fine (imposed by the province of Ontario Human Rights Tribunal) will now be transferred toward John’s battle in the upcoming Divisional Court and Appeals instead?

If so then I have already donated; and I do hope and pray that John has the support needed, as well as the personal tenacity to continue his fight against this ruling, and that ultimately he wins!

These Human Rights Tribunals/Commissions need to be either abolished altogether, or meticulously scrutinized and much needed changes made, thus significantly restricting the oppressive power and authority which they wield.

I see I’m not the only one feeling under appreciated after donating to John’s cause. Rebel, where is the update?
commented 2017-05-18 04:50:06 -0400
commented 2017-05-17 13:04:06 -0400
Has there been an update on how much was raised? Or a thank you at the very least? I may have missed it, but, as a donor, I’m feeling a little under appreciated.
commented 2017-05-16 02:50:00 -0400
John did nothing wrong. The floor is meant for walking, and Muslums use prayer rugs.
commented 2017-05-13 22:43:08 -0400
After watching the video, I felt so bad for John Alabi, I donated right away. Now I have read the posts here & agree with everybody that John shouldn’t pay one red cent to the tenants. How was John supposed to know about the prayer room. A hard working man who made something of himself & now has been ordered to pay for someone else’s religion. Take it to court & like others have said here, the whole thing might be thrown out. The crowdfunding will pay the legal fees & if he loses we will cross that bridge when we come to it. That’s right, don’t give in because this will only set a precedent & it will never stop. How easy do you think it would be for other Muslim tenants to pull the same BS & walk away with thousands of dollars in their pockets. The Ontario Human Rights Tribunal has to be taught a good lesson & maybe they won’t be so quick at siding with Muslims, which they seem to do in every case I read about.

Civil Rights are only as strong as the willingness of a citizenry to fight for them.
commented 2017-05-12 19:55:50 -0400
There are fundamental inalienable human rights that is being violated. We need to exercise these rights in court. People no longer seem to understand their fundamental rights anymore. Here is the website that gives the information:

The website author is a Canadian and he has the knowledge and experience to help. His name is also John. You can contact him to see if he is interested to help. He can give you an honest answer if it can be won. I think funding him to take it to the Supreme court would be better.
commented 2017-05-12 19:07:21 -0400
No, paying this fine only gives a precedent to use next time someone wants to abuse canadians with this nonsense. The real question is how this “ticket” was even entertained in the first place.
commented 2017-05-12 16:50:59 -0400
NO NO NO please do not give money to these people, fight the actual issue, put money toward fighting this as unconstitutional, as in its not possible this can happen here in Canada, this is Canada right???This is madness must be stopped….
commented 2017-05-12 12:13:17 -0400
I agree with Tamy Ethridge. Funding should pay for the court costs, first.
Other way, paying the fines will create jurisprudential reference.
It is a collective matter.
Citizen should support this proposal.
There are probably somewhere, lawyers that can address such issue.
Paying the fine will just create more poweful determination from those people.

Totally insane law, that retard Trudope brought this in obviously. He a Muslim lover only for votes.

Fight it do not pay it.

Mitzi- their prayer space, is his rental home. Unless they have some weird mumbo jumbo they do to sanctify a space…even then, the prayer space is still just an extra room. In JOHNS HOUSE.

It was an extra room before, so shall it be again. This is dangerous because, well, if a Muslim decides somewhere is a “prayer space” what’s to stop them from suing a person who used an extra employee bathroom that they sanctify as a prayer space?

It’s a slippery slope. I say we kick the Muslims all the way off the slope
commented 2017-05-12 11:00:02 -0400
And to a commenter below: Michelle Dyck….first of all, your last name suits you. Second of all, yes, tenants have rights, but 12,000 dollars because he left his shoes on? Does that not seem excessive to you? Yes, it’s the tenants house, but, only as long as they rent it, others have rented the same house prior to them.

Do they really think that NOT A SINGLE SOUL has ever worn shoes in that house before they lived there? I imagine a whole host of things have occurred in the house before they lived there? So it stands to reason that the house could never be sharia compliant according to how’ve thet view certain things and how their beliefs are.

So your argument, is just as STUPID as their case.
commented 2017-05-12 10:55:53 -0400
Unfortunately, this is a case of discrimination because the landlord KNEW the tenants were Muslim and defiled their prayer space. The law that is in place to protect against religious discrimination is the one the Muslims are using against us NON-MUSLIMS. We can not protect those religions we agree with yet not protect those we disagree with.
commented 2017-05-12 10:54:39 -0400
To the idiots saying “Don’t PAY!!!” Please, SHUT UP. It’s all well and good to say this, because it’s not you facing the fine &/or jail time if you were to fight it. John is. He needs financial support here, not your totally unqualified legal opinion.

John stated in the video he has exhausted so much money already with this, just getting to court to get started, he can’t afford a lawyer or anything at this point. Quit trying to act like a warrior and just give them the money. There’s no telling how bad this could get for himself and his family, worse than it is im sure…after all, these Muslim pieces of trash have already shown they’ll lie & manipulate like DOGS to get what they want. They’ll sink lower than this if they have to, they can afford too! The stupid Canadian government gave them a free attorney! They don’t have to decide: legal fees vs. food or clothes for my family?

Give them the money John & then NEVER rent to a Muslim tenant AGAIN. Yes, that’s discrimination, but there are “ways”, show the apartment if they inquire but tell them you have had several others already look at it & fake a phone call while they are browsing the property & tell them your 1st tenant just called & are wiring you the security deposit and the property is taken. End of story. So sorry for this…etc., etc.

Yes, I donated and it bothers me to a certain degree that money I gave will line the pockets of this Muslim TRASH, but I feel better when I think about helping John. Also, on a side note, when the crowdfunding campaign is over and John is given the money to pay the waste of space that calls themselves human beings their 12,000.00? Whether he gives them cash or a back check, he needs to take whatever form of payment he decides to give to a pig farm and rub that item ALL OVER A PIG. Lay it all over the pigs skin, try not to get it too dirty, but make contact with that pigs flesh. Then put it in an envelope and give them their money but say nothing.

Maybe wait another 10 years, (keep track of these a-holes btw) then contact them and tell them that their “sharia blood money” was steeped in the filth of a pig mere moments before they held it in their hands. It’ll fuck them up.

How convenient that so many people commenting here would donate to a court challenge but not to pay the fine. But the guy is facing the fine, and probably he has no interest in a court challenge. Do you know how much a court challenge would cost? I would guess in the hundreds of thousands of dollars—and he still might lose, and have to pay the other side’s legal fees as well. Are you going to pony up for all that? Sheesh.
commented 2017-05-12 09:12:26 -0400
There’s no point saying “Don’t pay!” These human rights tribunals are government bodies. Their word is law. If you don’t pay, they will come after you: garnish your wages, seize your property, close down your business. This is how the system works in Canada. It’s fine to give advice to another, but maybe he can’t afford to fight the HRT in court (and probably lose). I’m giving money to his fund.
commented 2017-05-12 06:49:59 -0400
Yes I’m wondering why we can no longer see it Helen Warn. Somebody in the comments section under the video said the goal had been reached so many that’s why we can no longer see it but it’s not good.

Where can we see donations raised so far?

I agree with the comments stating NOT to pay the fine,
Fight it in court and believe that this fine will be ruled
as opposing Canadian Law. We can not bow to the Sharia Law.
That is like opening a door to the devil evil and letting evil
overcome Truth. We must stand firm Now to claim our rights
as Canadians for our Freedom no matter what it takes.
I will donate for court costs.

Canada has laws ,Canada has courts. If someone feels they were wronged then make your case in court. Human rights commissions are unnecessary.
