Is there really a problem for Muslims in Canada?


MP Khalid is wrong ̶ Muslims aren't at risk. Existing statistics don't support the position that Muslims experience the greatest numbers of hate crimes. In fact, based on 2014 statistics, blacks experienced 238 incidents, Jews 213, those of non-heterosexual orientation 155, and Muslims 99 (even though there are three times as many Muslim Canadians as Jewish Canadians). Even though these 99 cases represent a “doubling” of the 45 cases experienced in 2012, such a variation in a Canadian Muslim population of over one million must be seen as insignificant.
