Are Muslim Canadians treated differently than other Canadians?
Some would argue that several high profile cases (ex. Fahmy, Khadr) show a willingness on the part of the Canadian government to abandon Muslim Canadians to bad treatment abroad. The recent decision to deport Canadian citizens convicted of terrorism charges could be seen to reinforce this image.
Are these cases representative of a more widespread problem? Muslim Canadians who have not been involved in criminal or terrorist activities also speak of experiencing discrimination on the street. What are we to make of this sense of mistreatment? Is it accurate? If so, how can it be combatted? What does this say about the inclusiveness of Canadian citizenship?show less
