In the aftermath of the unthinkable terrorist attack that took the lives of three generations of the Afzal family in London, Ontario, a unanimous consent motion was passed in the House of Commons that stated the following:
That, given that,
(i) Canada has been devastated over the last decade by repeated acts of violent Islamophobia, including but not exclusive to the Quebec City Mosque Attack, the IMO Mosque Attack, and the London Terror Attack,
(ii) Canada has been deeply affected by Islamophobia at a federal, provincial, territorial, and municipal level,

That fact sunk in outside the London Muslim Mosque on June 8 of this year, when thousands of Londoners gathered in the aftermath of the terror attack that took the lives of four members of the Canadian Muslim community in an unthinkable act of Islamophobic violence. The thousands that gathered that day were there to show their solidarity, pray, and stand ...

On September 12th, 2020, Mohamed Aslim-Zafis was taken in an act of Islamophobic violence at the IMO mosque by a man allegedly linked to a white supremacist organization called the O9A. Before his life was cut short, Mohamed was handing out food to the needy.

He was the familiar friendly face at the door to all those who visited the mosque and was known for his quiet dedication to helping others. Before his life was taken on September ...

The ongoing humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan is alarming.
Canada’s role in the Afghanistan crisis is indisputable. We owe it, after two decades of war and occupation, and to so many who lost loved ones and friends, to take action in the ongoing humanitarian crisis by expanding the numbers of refugees being brought to Canada.
Therefore, we are actively urging the federal government to respond to this crisis by:
Expanding commitments to accept and resettle refugees from 20,000 to at least 95,000 on an expedited ...
