In the wake of a fatal attack on a Muslim family in London, Ont., the Conservative MP for Elgin-Middlesex-London said Canada must end racism and hate. When asked by CBC London if she regrets not voting in favour of a 2017 motion to condemn Islamophobia, she responded: “Absolutely.” Here’s more of what she had to say.
Four members of the Muslim family killed nearly a week ago in a hit-and-run attack will be honoured at a public funeral today in London, Ont. A local imam who will lead the service for the Afzaal family believes the service is a crucial step in healing a grief-sticken community.
A few thousand people are marching in London, Ont., on Friday night in a multi-faith gathering intended to show support and solidarity in response to a June 6 attack that killed four members of a Muslim family.
