Toronto Muslim Complains

A controversial Toronto imam warned Public Safety Minister Anne McLellan at a closed-door meeting to stop “terrorizing” Canadian Muslims.

“If you try to cross the line I can’t guarantee what is going to happen. Our young people, we can’t control,” Aly Hindy, the head of Scarborough’s Salaheddin Islamic Centre, recalls telling the minister at the May meeting she held in Toronto with dozens of Muslim leaders.

The meeting was part of an effort by Ms. McLellan to reach out to Canadian Muslims amid complaints that the RCMP and Canadian Security Intelligence Service are engaging in racial profiling.

The minister and her officials have been meeting community leaders to explain they are not targeting Muslims generally, only individuals with possible terrorist links.

By many accounts, the meetings have been positive and are contributing to a thaw in relations between Muslims and security agents, even if the exchange in May was a little heated…"

If that was a Catholic Bishop who said that, he would of been arrested immediately for “hate speach”. Just shows that some people are more equal than others in Canada.


Well, well, well! Just can’t promise what those “young people might do” so look out, ay? Hate to say I told you so, but Toronto … (oh, I just hate that).

Wake up Canada - there must be some of you up there that can get it together. I know we all have our times when forces of special interests, media abuse and political corruption have control of things but start making noises! Get a broom going and I don’t mean for curling!

Its not easy but we are working on it here and know all about pot-shot criticism - so join the rest of us and we’ll get it done!

Praying for wisdom in government in the COLD NORTH. :gopray2: Sometimes even governments need to think about what they ask for. The just might get what they wanted. In many cases the way Canada goes so goes our more liberal States in the lower 49.:eek:
