The London Muslim Mosque and the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) put forward 61 recommendations ahead of the upcoming National Summit on Islamophobia. During a news conference Monday morning, the CEO of the NCCM, Mustafa Farooq, expressed the urgent need for change. “The reality is that Canada has suffered more mass killings motivated by Islamophobia in the last five years than any other country in the G7,” he said. “This cannot be allowed to continue.” Recommendations include reforming the Canada Revenue Agency and Criminal Code Amendments to better deal with hate crimes, developing anti-Islamophobia strategies in education at the provincial level, and launching municipal anti-racism campaigns. “This body of recommendations was compiled after talking to (thousands) of Canadian Muslims (from) coast to coast with the diversity (of) gender, race and class,” Farooq said.
