Mr. Speaker, Lebanese singer Mohamed Eskandar has three concerts planned in Canada over the next few days.
However, his songs clearly incite violence against women and homosexuals. We simply cannot tolerate these kinds of messages, which fly in the face of our values. Back in 2012, the government denied him a visa.
Can the minister confirm whether a visa was granted to Mr. Eskandar, and if so, why was it granted, when it was denied in 2012?
