In October, Jews praying in a Pittsburgh synagogue were targeted for mass murder.
In March, Muslims praying in two Christchurch mosques were targeted for mass murder.
In both cases, the perpetrator used social media to spread their heinous, hateful agenda. From white supremacists to ISIS, it is increasingly clear that online hate and radicalization can fuel and foreshadow offline violence.
While most Canadians reject these dangerous ideologies, Canada is not immune from this threat – which knows no borders.
This is why we are calling for the Government of Canada to launch a national strategy to combat online hate.
The House of Commons Justice Committee recently announced it is launching a study on this issue. This is an important first step in developing a national strategy. Please help continue the momentum by telling the Justice Minister that this issue matters to you.
Email the Justice Minister to encourage him to take action.
