Public Safety committee  We're in dialogue with them. I would be happy to provide some further information to you about that.

Public Safety committee  Obviously those are very strong threats. There are other threats. Radicalization just doesn't take place online. It does take place via individuals, even here in Canada. That's why with the lack of prosecutions there is also a lack of cases going up the way from police forces. Th

Public Safety committee  B'nai Brith is very supportive of that initiative, and we look forward to working more closely with them. I think they should engage with many civil society groups. You're right that it's the other side of the coin when you're talking about prevention. That has to be taken care o

Public Safety committee  As Mr. Matas stated earlier, I don't think any law, no matter how it's worded, is going to protect Canadians. It's how it's interpreted. At the end of the day, it's about the training and education of our law enforcement agencies. It's how they work together and how they work wi

Public Safety committee  Terrorism has to come from a place of hate for any individual to go out and perform such heinous, murderous violence. There has to be seething hatred inside of them, and that's a pathway. Sometimes it can happen very quickly. Sometimes it can get extended out. However, there are

Public Safety committee  If I could just add to that, we need to ensure that conceptually there is no narrowing, so that our security agencies can properly deal with the threats of terrorism today and the threats of terrorism that exist tomorrow. On the Justice Canada website right now, in a description

Public Safety committee  That's correct.

February 8th, 2018Committee meeting

Michael Mostyn

Public Safety committee  Thank you very much for the question. I think it's a very important question. It points to how interrelated some of these hatreds are, and that are actually a pathway towards radicalization, and terrorism in certain cases. As you mentioned, there is something of a resurgence with

Public Safety committee  Thank you. I will be sharing my time with Mr. Matas. We thank the committee for inviting us to appear. I will provide some introductory remarks. My colleague David Matas, our senior legal counsel, will elaborate on some of our key points on the proposed legislation. B'nai Brith

Canadian Heritage committee  The only thing I have to add to my colleague's remarks is this. You were talking about education and talking about tolerance and understanding. The only way that can happen in real-world terms is to also ensure that we teach history, because that's the reality. I think if student

Canadian Heritage committee  Certainly. As opposed to certain terms of racism—such as anti-Semitism, which may have been confusing at one point, but on which there is now an international consensus, and the Ottawa protocol process was part of that—“Islamophobia” is a confusing term, unfortunately, at the mo

Canadian Heritage committee  Thank you. Actually, another incident that my colleague mentioned was that last February an imam in Montreal three times called on Allah to annihilate every single last Jew on the earth. This was done in front of his entire congregation. It was only when video of this incident

Canadian Heritage committee  Yes, I'll be speaking first. Thank you.

Canadian Heritage committee  We'll be splitting our time. Thank you, Madam Chair. We thank the committee for inviting us to appear. My colleague, David Matas, our senior legal counsel, will speak to elaborate on some of our key points. We have documentation available and can provide additional materials

Justice committee  We'd be happy to get back to you as well. The only thing I would add is that an offence such as this is a very cowardly offence. This is something that's usually done under the cover of darkness. I know you were talking about your experiences in the past. Unfortunately, we live
