Politics in the Pub – Islamophobia

Join the Ottawa West-Nepean Federal Liberal Association and our MP Anita Vandenbeld on Thursday, March 23rd for Politics in the Pub with special guest MP Iqra Khalid (Mississauga Erin-Mills). 
 
 
Throughout her life, Iqra has been a strong advocate for equality and fairness. Her primary objective has always been to strengthen ties among Canadians. Iqra recently tabled a private members motion – M103 – which calls for a Parliamentary committee to study Islamophobia and all forms of systemic racism and religious discrimination. 
 
Hate crimes in Canada have decreased over the past ten years. However hate crimes against Muslims have doubled in the past three years. Following the tragic shooting at a Quebec City mosque, this issue is even more pressing.
 
Please join us as we hear firsthand from Iqra and have this timely discussion on systemic racism and religious discrimination in Canada.
