Jews are unquestionably the most targeted group for hate crimes in Canada. However, instead of proposing a plan to combat anti-Semitism and to protect Canadian Jews, the hopelessly incompetent Prime Minister Trudeau continues to focus on fighting against Islamophobia, with motions such as M-103. Under Prime Minister Trudeau Canada has become much less safe for Jews.
3rd straight record-breaking year for anti-Semitism in Canada, CityNews, April 30, 2019:
Canada is not immune to the global trend of rising anti-Semitism, according to a new report for B’nai Brith.
The Annual Audit of Anti-Semitic Incidents, presented on Monday, found 2018 saw a 16.5 per cent increase in anti-Semitic harassment, vandalism and violence with 2,041 recorded incidents compared to 1,752 incidents in 2017.
“Our primary concern with the trend we are observing is that this may be indicating a new normal in terms of the propagation of anti-Semitism in Canada, along the same pattern of growth in anti-Semitism that has been observed in Europe and elsewhere in the world, ” Michael Mostyn, CEO of B’nai Brith Canada, explained.
The report found that 80 per cent of harassment reported to B’nai Brith was from online communication — Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, email and others — and ranged from malicious sentiments to threats of violence and calls for genocide.
Mostyn said this faceless, online form of harassment is favoured because of the anonymity it affords the users and the “ease in which online mediums can be utilized to target Jewish individuals.”
According to the report, some of the harassment experienced by Canadians last year included a group of teens shooting lit fireworks at Hasidic Jews in Quebec, two Saskatchewan elementary school students being harassed and beaten by their peers, a group of Orthodox students in Toronto being assaulted on the streets, a Winnipeg high school student being mocked for her “Jewish nose” as well as having family members die in the Holocaust, a Manitoba woman being threatened in an anonymous phone call and a 13-year-old Toronto student harassed by a peer who threatened to “shoot up a Jewish school” and told her to “go back into the ovens.”
