How about “no” to dedicated Muslim prayer spaces in Toronto subway stations?

David MenziesMission Specialist

A Change.org petition is calling on the Toronto Transit Commission to install Muslim prayer spaces in subway stations.


The petition was started by something called the Abu Ubaydah Islamic Centre and at the time of writing, it has more than 3,300 signatures.

I suppose anyone can ask for anything but the response I received when I reached out to a TTC spokesman on the matter, was a tad disturbing.

On the one hand, TTC spokesman Stewart Greene initially confirmed that setting aside extra space for anything in Toronto’s increasingly crowded subway stations, would make for a logistical nightmare. On the other, the TTC’s official response I received later, suggests that they need to think about it once the petition is presented.

Huh?

Why isn’t the answer an outright no? Where’s that speech about separation of church and state?

While diversity is our strength and discrimination is bad, apparently some discrimination for a particular type of diversity is good, I suppose.

Al Peterson, thanks for the visuals – this is what I was talking about. This type of domination of public spaces will be the next step in Canada if nothing is done to prevent it.

Surprised this isn’t already happening in Toronto on mass.

Oh, yeah. Canada is back! Back in the dumpster.

Liza, thank you for the link… I lived for 25 years in Nova Scotia… I ended up losing everything there… That was at the age of 50… Imagine losing everything at the age of 50.. My Harley was the last thing to go… A Heritage Softail Classic.. Real Red/Diamond Ice..I lived in “Turning Point” for a bit, but I worked my way out. Cannot keep an Irishman down… I beat the system… I’m 63, and I now help others to find their way.. And soon, I’m off to retire in another Country before the end of 2019… My friends will have a place to stay.. So, stay in touch… I will be in Costa Rica, or Panama… Maybe Colombia, or Ecuador, or Peru.. Maybe Thailand.. I will know when I book that “one way” flight….

Canadians won’t do a thing,were the worlds whipping boy-China’s is man handling us,the Saudi’s are laughing at us and the UN tells us what to do!! The kicker is Islam comes to this country and everyone sits back and watches it happen,still waiting for the people to take a stand-they won’t they will lay down and succumb to the death cult.

Ha !
The camel is attempting to insert its nose in the tent.

The TTC is waffling along, the next thing you know is that the camel will be in the tent, and everyone else outside.

We really need to cleanup the deadwood at the TTC.

Thanks Liza Rosie…. Echoes of the environmentalists mantra from the 70s, which I well remember, and still true, “if you’re not part of the solution, then you are part of the problem”…

I thought you cared about over population Andrew?
I didn’t make the Paris and London comment, but you are being silly. Are you trying to mislead people into thinking that there are no problems there? Who would do that? Someone who has agenda to keep the truth from being accepted? I don’t know, because the lie sounds ‘nicer’ or something?
Subterfuge is a big part of the problem.
commented 2019-01-28 00:27:31 -0500
Look Andrew I would feel sorry for you if you weren’t part of the problem. Don’t mistake ‘helping’ with enabling , or truth with hate. Lies put people at risk, truth gives them a chance.
commented 2019-01-28 00:21:56 -0500
I said, manufactured. You missed that part. You proved the point that you are, and if that part on my equation is true, so is the self loathing part. Since I don’t accept laws that dictate speech, if you post as Andrew you are a ‘he’ to me.

If over population is an issue for you Andrew why are you all for more people who have multiple wives and multiple babies? Its not like you can convince them to abort like stupid Canadian women have been. "

None of my business how other people live their lives. I merely live mine as I see best fit. (odd as it may sound, I am rather libertarian on that front- yay freedom).

“(Paris and London come to mind, where hundreds or thousands of Muslims gather and they bring loudspeakers to broadcast the service)”
Which parks? I was in Paris maybe a year ago, and saw nothing of the sort. That being said, in a free society people do have the right to use public spaces.

Not one posting here has shown me disrespect, except for Andrew … Liza, you and Robert Greeley have (as well as others) have been dead on, in your opinions.. So… What is wrong with Andrew?? "

What do you feel was disrespectful?

Andrew!!! Where are you?? You Crazy Nut Bar… If you would like to discuss/talk of Multicultural/Integration Polices with me, you better be prepared.. I, along with many others, will rip you to pieces… And, we will do it In Public!! In front of an Audience.. "

Please do so, you’ve piqued my curiousity, I’m interested to see what you’ll say. The anonymity of the internet really eliminates the demeaning nature of public depantsings. (Metaphor, Al. Or maybe not :) )

Personally Robert Sloane, I think he is full of self loathing , a victim of this manufactured ‘white’ guilt, ‘white’ privilege brainwashing with a chip on his shoulder.”

I’d prefer the pronoun “Xher”, please :) . I am a product of white privilege, though. I’m the first to admit it. Self-loathing? Probably not, I’ve obviously done well by it and try to use my position to help others without the same advantages as much as possible. I do really wonder how much of the hate seen around here is a projection of the same emotion. A lot of ink has been spilled on the origin of the resentment of lower class whites.

Problem is how many Andrews are scattered across Canada with the same skewed views that put this country on a trajectory of absolute stupidity and danger!!

Personally Robert Sloane, I think he is full of self loathing , a victim of this manufactured ‘white’ guilt, ‘white’ privilege brainwashing with a chip on his shoulder. The weaponized left.

He thinks its immoral to procreate because global warming or something, but thinks its grand for us to have open borders and allow ourselves to become replaced by some very prolific procreators. Every opinion is like an incomplete thought. Dim bulb, weak synapses, just cannot connect the dots.

Canadians won’t do a damn thing about these Islamic rats,they are to afraid of being called racist or bigot! I’m way past that point call me every name in book but you’re not going to push your Islamic shit on me without a fight. Look at our government,politicians,and a good swath of Canadians that bend over backwards to please these rats. Protect yourselves because our politicians and cops won’t protect you,they are to busy standing up for the Muslim slime!!

Judy absolutely. Toronto should be contacting the TTC , Tory and Ford and screaming bloody murder.

For better or for worse I often use others comments as a bouncing board into a point. No offence .

Robert Sloane, the one who asked ‘where does it stop’. Robert Greeley.
No worries Irish Bob. If I came off badly in response to any of your posts it wasn’t intentional. fOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE, i

Just to let you know Liza, I am “Irish Bob” .. I am Robert Sloane…I’m of Irish decent…I will not tolerate any Anti-White/Anti-European crap from any person… The “you know what is about to hit the fan”…Lock and Load People…

I meant to refer to Craig James’ comment – sorry guys.

This petition now has over 4150 signatures. It would be great to see a counter petition.

100% correct Liza Rosie… it won’t stop until we the Canadian public stand up and say no more… No More… No More..
