U.S. poli­cies in­fect­ing Canada

RE: Que­bec mosque at­tack

Prime Min­is­ter Justin Trudeau was cor­rect in call­ing the Que­bec City shoot­ings a “cow­ardly at­tack.” This vi­o­lence was com­mit­ted only days af­ter the ban of Muslim im­mi­gra­tion in the U.S. It is in­ter­est­ing to note that the sus­pected shooter strongly sup­ported Trump and his po­lit­i­cal ide­olo­gies which have fos­tered ex­treme civil un­rest. It is alarm­ing that the cli­mate of ha­tred and xeno­pho­bia are hav­ing in­flu­ence in Canada. We must not let any leg­is­la­tion or at­tack brew ha­tred among peo­ple — es­pe­cially not in Canada. Let us unite and work to­gether in main­tain­ing our Cana­dian val­ues. Ab­dul­lah Ah­mad, Hamil­ton
