VIDEO: Rima's private member's bill - Bill 83 passes second reading

Published on April 5, 2019

I am overjoyed and grateful that the legislature voted unanimously to support my private member's bill yesterday. A big thank you to all the members who spoke eloquently in favour of it.
Being united against Islamophobia is not a partisan issue and there is deep healing that can be made possible when we collectively take actions that specifically denounce this form of hate. 
Next step - get it through committee and enacted!
