Vancouver City Hall was the site of opposing rallies on Saturday. A group supporting racial tolerance gathered in the early afternoon just ahead of a demonstration by anti-Islam activists at 2 p.m. An event dubbed the “WCAI Canada/CAP rally” had been re-posted to Facebook after being taken down Tuesday, and listed speakers from several anti-immigration and anti-Muslim groups. Brad Salzberg with the Cultural Action Party said Saturday’s protest wasn’t about supremacy. “It’s not about supremacy, I don’t believe in racial supremacy. We are concerned about Islamic ideology or Sharia law becoming entrenched in our society as we have witnessed in Western European countries.” An estimated 4,000 people attended a counter-rally at City Hall that was organized by an ad-hoc group calling itself Stand Up to Racism Metro Van. Signs reading “live with love” and “diversity = strength” were spotted throughout the packed crowd as speakers talked about tolerance and the need for a more inclusive society. Rae Figursky with Stand up Against Racism Metro Vancouver said the rally was about standing up for the values in the community.
We are concerned about Islamic ideology or Sharia law becoming entrenched in our society as we have witnessed in Western European countries.
That is bloody hilarious obviously he has never been to Krim before the Muscovy invasion.
It is is the home of the Ukrainian Tatars, who just happen to be Muslim but just like the orthodox and Catholics follow the secular law of Ukrainian
According to his way of thinking Ukraine should now be under Sharia law, but it ain't!
The Muslim have been visiting and trading with the Aboriginals of Northern Australia hundreds of year before the Poms arrived and invaded the country.
They did not try to convert them to Islam, but respected our laws and customs and traded fairly with us.
A lot of this is being brought on by what's happening in the US, I'm sure.
of course we should stand up against intolerance and bigotry from wherever it comes form. And I do mean from wherever. We have to defend our liberal values from who ever attacks it.
Who would ever have thought that western countries would be behaving like this to start with? I fault the US south for much of it here on the N. American continent. It seems to radiate far & wide.
