Where have I ever noted anywhere that hate crimes don't exist? Against anybody, let alone immigrants? Within Canada or not?

Be specific.

In the face of zero evidence to the contrary, once again, the base crumbles under your argument.

...

Why do you refuse to concede that these attacks are occurring?

Grande Prairie doctor who created 'culture of fear' suspended two years, fined $700,000

Quote:
Dr. Mohammed Al-Ghamdi’s combative behaviour and failure to co-operate with coworkers made him a “disruptive” force to health services over a decade at the Queen Elizabeth II hospital, a tribunal of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Alberta ruled.

“This is a sad case because Dr. Al-Ghamdi’s lack of insight into his behaviour, and his refusal to accept responsibility for the impact of his actions, has impacted his practice as an orthopedic surgeon — a profession for which he has spent years training, cares about deeply and is skilled in practising,” the tribunal wrote in its December 2017 decision, which was made public this week.

The ruling came after a disciplinary hearing that lasted almost two years, required more than 40 days of testimony, and cost more than $1 million to conduct — making it the most expensive hearing in the college’s history.
He seems nice.

Police seize two firearms,
Front Street West and Spadina Avenue area,
Six arrested in downtown search warrant


Quote:
On Tuesday, July 17, 2018, as part of an investigation by the Toronto Police Service Gun & Gang Task Force, officers executed a search warrant in the Front Street West and Spadina Avenue area.

It is alleged that:

- two loaded handguns, a .45 calibre and a 9 mm, were seized

Six people were arrested.

Ibrahim Abdikarim...Jabril Abdirahman...Abdullahi Abdikarim...Hussein Nur...Maya Ahmed...Liban Guled
They seem nice.

The thing that puzzles me is how a bunch of nice, law-abiding gentlemen such as these managed to obtain handguns in the face of all this stringent gun control in Canada.

I'm definitely with Mayor Tory when he notes (and I'm paraphrasing here): Some people just shouldn't have guns.

Halifax girl feels shaken after alleged anti-Muslim harassment

A teenage girl in Halifax said she felt frozen with fear when a man yelled anti-Muslim insults at her this week on a downtown street.

“I never thought it would happen to me. It made me feel so out of place, and like I don’t belong here,” she said in an interview Wednesday.

* * *

StarMetro spoke with the 17-year-old girl, who wishes to remain anonymous for fear that her alleged attacker could see her name in the news and seek her out.

She said she’s lived in Halifax for more than three years and is going into her second year at Dalhousie University. She said she has regularly walked from the Sexton campus on Barrington St. to a bus stop on Spring Garden Rd.

She said when she left class around 3 p.m. on Monday, she donned her headphones, as usual, and turned the volume up on her music while she walked, alone, towards the bus. She was near the Halifax Central Library when she noticed a man trying to get her attention.

“A guy was in my face and he looked like he was yelling, so I took my headphones out and said, ‘Excuse me?’ So he just turned around again and said, ‘F— you, f— all Muslims.’”

She said he also told her to go back to her home country — a cutting remark, she added, because she considers Canada her home. She was born in Egypt and grew up in Saudi Arabia before moving to Halifax.

The woman was wearing a hijab at the time of the incident,

Anonymous source, no witnesses. Why even bother posting something like that?

Allegations are as good as facts, did you not get the memo about that?

Seriously though what are they hoping will change? There will always be people like this out there, it is sad and unfortunate but it is the truth. Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me was a pretty popular saying that was told when I was a kid. Not sure if it was just some rhyme to say or if they really intended to toughen kids up to the harsh realities of life that people will say mean things about you sometimes. How someone being called names is now news worthy is beyond me. If we are going down that road how many youtube comments should be on the front page showing the hatred and ignorance towards people of different skin colour and religion? The harsh reality is suck it up and go about your day. If he threatens violence then call the police, she has all the same rights as any other Canadian citizen.

I'm very tired of people equating harsh language with violence. It dilutes the meaning of real violence.

And here's the sad reality... just because one person cried wolf, now anyone who claims to have been a victim is suspect.

Are muslim-Canadians now where women were not very long ago with regard to sexual assault? If there were no witnesses, well, sorry ma'am, but you'll just have to suck it up and go about your day....

Are we going to start requiring muslims who've been victims of verbal abuse or violence to process the crime scene by themselves? Bring in the CCTV footage from nearby shops? Scrape the DNA from under their own fingernails?

Slippery slope...

All because folks prefer to think the worst, rather than give someone the benefit of the doubt.

But hey, they're muslims, after all - those folks just can't be trusted, right? They come from one of those cultures, you know, you can't just take what they say at face value. They're different.

Women still have to prove sexual assault. And you're damned right the story is suspect--and not simply because of previous liars.
