Isn’t the Quebec mosque attack indicative of the need to introduce measures that “quell the increasing public climate of hate and fear”?
The attack is rightly condemned. It needs to be noted that, weeks and even months after the event, there is still no specific motive ascribed to its cause. Indeed, the alleged attacker appeared in court facing “six counts of first-degree murder and five of attempted murder using a restricted firearm.” The fact that hate and terrorism charges were not levelled at that time speaks to the absence of “Islamophobic” factors. Rather, it seems more likely that the “hate” claimed by proponents of M-103 is politically motivated supposition. On a worrisome note, why is so little information being released on this internationally significant case of mass slaughter? Why is the media not reporting on this matter?
