AUDIO: All in a Day with Alan Neal: Bill 83 Islamophobia

Published on March 22, 2019

Thank you Alan Neal and CBC Ottawa for chatting with me today about my private member's bill to proclaim January 29 as a Day of Remembrance and Action on Islamophobia.

"Of course we need to get rid of all forms of hate, we need to get rid of all forms of racism, but one can't do that generally, one has to do that specifically.

We need to go after Antisemitism, after homophobia and transphobia, after Anti-Black racism, after Anti-Indigenous racism, after Islamophobia but we have to do it specifically because each of these versions of hate manifests differently."
