The Canadian government on Sunday announced its intention to appoint a special representative to combat Islamophobia in the country as part of its anti-racism strategy. “Islamophobia is unacceptable. Full stop. We need to put an end to this hate and make our communities safer for Muslim Canadians. To help with that, we intend to appoint a Special Representative on combatting Islamophobia,” Justin Trudeau tweeted.
“This year, on the eve of the five-year anniversary of this act of terror, the Government of Canada stands with and supports Muslim communities across Canada and reaffirms its commitment to take action to denounce and tackle Islamophobia and hate-fueled violence,” it also said.
The government noted that Islamophobia is a “concrete and daily reality” for Muslim communities across the country and around the world. It then underlined that it is their responsibility to build a more inclusive country to combat discrimination.
