Sharia in Yonge-Dundas Square? Street preacher assaulted by “mall cop” for criticizing Islam

David MenziesMission Specialist

Toronto’s Yonge-Dundas area can resemble a three-ring circus with street performers, costumed superheroes, and Elvis impersonators. 

But recently, when evangelical street preacher Dorre Shepherd Love dropped by to spread the Gospel and criticize Islam, freedom of expression took a turn into The Twilight Zone.

Watch as I interview Dorre about the incident and share the follow-up questions I submitted to the Eaton Centre.

The one sentence response I received to my five questions was:

"It is not our policy to address individuals outside of our property line, as such we are investigating the matter and will take the appropriate actions with our employee."

This latest attack on free speech must be addressed.

We’ll give the Eaton Centre some time to complete its investigation and, hopefully, apologize to Mr. Love.

Stay tuned...

I see Reverend Dorre Love is from the same ministry as Reverend Lynn. I see also their head office is not far from me. I’ll be calling in the morning to encourage Dorre to file charges. Turning the other cheek didn’t work for 400yrs of Muslim oppression, why would it work now? In fact, charging him helps him to learn our culture of tolerance!!

David White—don’t forget the MSM bosses . They should be right beside Trudeau.

Why can the regressive left not see this? M103 is around the corner. Why should we see our country destroyed for the sake of libtard stupidity? When Trudeau is hung for treason, he won’t be lonely at the gallows, and Goodale better be hanging right beside him.

Jesus preached love.
What did Mohammed preach?

If I may:


– (2:191) Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them.
– (3:28) Muslims must not take the infidels as friends.
– (3:85) Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable.
– (5:33) Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam.
– (8:12) Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Quran.
– (8:65) The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them.
– (9:5) When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them.
– (9:28) The infidels are unclean; do not let them into a mosque.
– (9:29) Kill the Jews and the Christians if they do not convert to Islam or refuse to pay Jizya tax.
– (9:30) The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them.
– (9:123) Make war on the infidels living in your neighbourhood.
– (22:19) Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water;
melt their skin and bellies.
– (47:4) Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them.

Right there in black and white!

Peter Babich—Did you mention a story 2 days ago where Trudeau took 2 Billion from our CPP and invested in India’s Social Housing ? If so, do you have any links to the story as it seems to end in Oct. 2015, at least on the Net.

Thanks again David. I wish this was the mainstream media, but it’s up to the few to carry the facts

Canadian Mongrel, your theory is pretty good too!

@Deborah Graupner, Jesus was a peace-loving hippie who never harmed a soul. I wonder why the MSM and the Marxist/Postmodernists in the universities are so in love with Mohammed who was the exact opposite, a man who slaughtered several hundred Jews on just one day.

Very weird!!

What wonderful reporting. Congratulations David Menzies. And thank you Dorre Shepherd for having the intelligence and courage to speak the truth about Islam.

Janice Kay – he preached murderous rage, leading to death and destruction!

As much as i despise this garbage , i make an exception for Toronto, they deserve it.

Perhaps Dorre Shepherd Love could be interviewed on The Rebel sometime. He sounds like a reasonable person.

My bet is no one complained to the security guard, but that he is muslim. Hence he acted on his own prejudiced opinion, and tried to use his keystone cop uniform to intimidate.

However, this gives a hint as to what will happen as more muslims enter actual police service…two tiered legal (not justice) system when muslim police officers interpret law with a sharia lens. Much like the UK.

You have to realize, some people have been schooled in how to gain sympathy. Run to the press after each attack and say you’re worried about a backlash (which never comes).

Look for racism everywhere, then be really loud about it. Call CBC to get full coverage.

That’s part of THE PLAN!
commented 2017-08-30 17:27:06 -0400
This is complete sharia BS. A line has to be drawn in the sand right now. This has to be nipped in the bud. Kudos to the preacher for standing up for free speech and against islamic hatred.
commented 2017-08-30 17:00:43 -0400
Sounds to me like Dorre Shepherd is an exemplary preacher (and not a cowardly hypocrite like most church representatives) who should serve as a model for all other priests and anyone else spreading the good word.
commented 2017-08-30 16:29:58 -0400
Let me hazzard a guess at what happened. Offended Islamist or apologist saw the security guard uniform and thought it was a police officer….complained about “hate speech” and, demanded immediate action be taken to stop the street preacher from speaking any further. The security guard didn’t want to “offend” or, explain to the complainer that he does not have the authority to settle this complaint & free speech hasn’t been outlawed yet!
Mr. Love’s counter argument was logical, which probably angered them even more. The offended are not used to having a discussion; they flung the word Hate at him and expected him to shut up.

Just the attitude of sharia , is the law of sharia , it would seem
