Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson challenged to approve 'Draw Muhammad' contest after 'Hijab Day' at City Hall

StaffRebel Columnist

A women's rights activist is calling out Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson to see if he will approve a 'Draw Muhammad' event at City Hall.

A pro-Hijab event is already scheduled to be held at City Hall on February 25.

In regards to the pro-Islamic Hijab Day event, Watson wrote, “I am not in a position to intervene in this difference of opinion you have with the event organizers. This volunteer initiative seems to be focused on removing perceived stigma around an article of clothing. It is not my role to tell people what they should wear.”

According to CIJ News, the mayor said that event bookings are not an endorsement of content by City Council.

The activist asked Mayor Watson if he would allow supporters of free speech like herself to organize a “Draw Mohammed” contest in the same spot the Hijab event will take place.

CIJ News reports that he has yet to respond to the request.

SOUND OFF in the comments: would you take part in a Draw Muhammad contest?

They don’t need permission. Just go and do it!! Claim to be part of the “Mohammad Celebrations”. See?

I think we should make “Draw Muhammad Day” a Canadian paid holiday once a year! lol

I like the idea of a Draw MoMo event, it should be adopted by every anti-Islamisation group in this country.

What hasn’t been discussed here, is the group responsible for the hijab day event in the first place. It wasn’t City Hall’s idea! They are called CAVI and they claim to be a women’s community group. Trouble is, all they do is organize regular pro-Islam brainwashing events for poor and marginalized women. The women are bribed to attend, with free meals and transit subsidies. CAVI even runs McDonalds style franchises across Canada. And who’s paying for all this? You and me, in the form of generous provincial, municipal and federal grants. Oh, and they also enjoy charitable tax-free status. Am I the only one who’s wondering just who donates to a group that pushes Islam on Canadian women? Wouldn’t be Justin’s extremist group friends, would it? Inquiring minds want to know.
Here’s their website: http://www.cawi-ivtf.org/
You can also make your views known on their Facebook page.

That is the best idea I have heard, to counter balance or push back the Islamisation of Canada. People who immigrate here MUST adopt OUR culture, not the other way around. Even if the mayor says no for it to be held at City Hall. Let’s do it elsewhere!!!!! Like on Parliament Hill! Just tell me where and when. Enough is enough!

I wish every day `could be `Draw Mohammad Day.

I would gladly, openly, publicly participate in a draw Mohammad cartoon event! In fact, if one were to be held in my province, I would even help to organize and run it! As would tens of thousands of others, who value our freedoms.

In spite of the left-think cowardism of politicians, this “Draw Mohammed” contest will not happen because it would be a security risk – given the nature of Islam and their documented history…
What I suggest happen instead, is to hold a HUGE protest rally at City Hall on February 25, against the hijab. People attending could convert their Cartoons of Mohammed into protest signs and have a contest at the end of the protest to see who has the best ‘sign’…
One word of advice though, use a stout stick for your sign, so you will be able to use it to defend yourselves from the insane Islamics who will show up and who will do their usual Islamic insanity…I like the idea some people had at those Notley protests in Alberta where they had their signs mounted on pitch forks…

Draw Muhammad contest.Will never happen.Does anyone really think that there is a leftist politician in this country with the balls to defy their new political bosses.Just the mention of muhammads name will probably result in protests in Ottawa supported by all the usual suspects,femminists,public unions the lgbt and whatever other letters they need for their freak show.And of course at the end in will drive little Justin in his subsidized Tesla handing out government cheques to everybody but us big bad WHITE ENGLISH MALES.Because as everybody knows we already hav everthing we could possibly want.

I will not hold my breath, but i would actually have some respect if he said it would bring out the Islamic lunatics. You know, if he told the truth about why he would not allow it.

Hey this is a draw Mo contest – stick figure cartoons are enough to set off the knuckle dragging foamers.

Michael Martin – the gated communities have many nationalities that live in them now. Many are highly paid professionals, and they are taught the same as those who are poor. And when the call comes, they will respond as they have been programmed to do since birth. So the rich and famous had best not think that they are so protected behind their gated communities.

Watson knows that a “Draw Muhammad” event would be hit by suicide bombers. It’ll be interesting to hear what weasel words he’ll use to avoid saying that.
commented 2016-02-18 16:06:58 -0500
I’d love to Participate But I can’t DRAW WORTH A SHIT ! And I’m pretty convinced it will not be Approved and if it is, it will be when we ARE DHIMMIS living under Full Blown Sharia Law . And your intelligent enough to know what the end of that one will be !!! Well just like some people say about young Justin " will have to wait and see " !!!

So typical of corse there won’t be any response from Mayor Watson. Like any political figure wants the negative press associated with questioning anything Islam. Even our prime minister refers to the Islamic state as the “So called Islamic state” The real problem is the people running our country are the elite. They live in gated communitys hidden from any of the real world turmoil educate themselfs in a philosophy that has no real world practicality and profess themselfs as the people most fit to lead. I’m a believer in real world education that there is no substitute for first hand experience. The people who lead us are lacking in the most basic of social skills yet have the greatest influence on how we interact with one another socially. They have perfected a language of politics that allows a person to make promises and hint at directions they wish to go in and then when the situation becomes volatile their able to shed themselves of any accountability. Being politically correct is just another way of saying wrong. The truth hurts so there for its not politically correct. Government should run on truth not political correctness. Islam goes against our constitution, what we believe as Canadians. That’s the truth and we should act from there not off of the beliefs of people that haven’t been educated to know better.
P.s. I’d take part in draw Mohamed day. I’d draw him for the pediphile he was.

best make my last remark clear i meant a womens rights activist who finally is showing some common sense on this issue.
commented 2016-02-18 14:27:46 -0500
finally a woman with some real common sense

He will say no. Hypocrisy is logical to regressive types.
commented 2016-02-18 14:23:59 -0500
Who is this “women’s rights activist”? Name? Organization? Twitter handle? She might be our ally (enemy of my enemy is my friend). Women’s rights activists should all publicly decry misogynistic Islam. The ones that don’t… they really don’t care for women or rights or even common sense.

A pig nailed upside down to a cross, but I definitely wouldn’t want to defile the cross….or piggy.

The rise of Islamism in Canada is becoming more apparent every day.

The edit was transmitted, “Do not offend the Prophet; for death will be upon you.” and it was handed to the Mayor of Ottawa.

He is a very obedient coward.

it would be easy to draw that.
a lemming humping a cherry should do nicely.

I don’t live there but I’m sure it will be refused anyway. I think it would be hilarious.

Match meet gasoline. Gasoline meet match.


Now let’s see what the lefties/socialists do in response to antagonizing their ideological and financial business partners – islamic terrorism.
