Jews are far more likely to be victims of hate crimes in Canada than Muslims. But a motion called M-103 is coming before Parliament on February 16 to urge special consideration regarding “Islamophobia” without defining the word.
M-103 could lead to curtailments of freedom of speech deemed hateful towards Muslims, but also, critically, towards Islam itself. Blasphemy laws conceived according to Shariah law have been adopted in a number of western countries.
It could happen here.
If it does, many of my columns could be construed as Islamophobic and subject to penalties.
All Canadians should be worried.
