Tune in to Off the Hour every weekday from 5-6pm on CKUT for all the best in community news from Montreal and beyond!

Featured on March 13th program:

Last month, the Shawinigan, Quebec, city council voted unanimously to prevent the construction of a mosque by the city’s Muslim Cultural Centre. Mayor Michel Angers later said that the council yielded to “irrational fears” in the wake of attacks on the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris.

According to Canadians for Justice and Peace in the Middle East (CJPME), anti-Muslim sentiments are on the rise across Canada, likely fuelled by generalized fears of the so-called “Islamic State” and violent extremism abroad. Listen to Off the Hour this Friday, March 13th, for a live panel discussion of anti-Islamic discrimination in Quebec and internationally.

Camille Baker and Antoine Cadaux will be speaking with members of the CJPME, UQAM researcher Siegfried L. Mathelet, American author Umm Zakiyyah, Montreal muslim community leader Atigh Ould and others.
