Canada’s foreign policy needs a shift and a human rights lens
What’s needed in this election is an awakening and recognition that our foreign policy is failing and losing vision. This global Islamophobia phenomenon is entrenched in state-sponsored policies. Both Conservative and Liberal governments are guilty of contributing to it and neither has offered any real action to combat it.
Diversity, Inclusion, and Youth Minister Bardish Chagger announced in July 2020 that dual summits on Islamophobia and anti-Semitism would be held on consecutive days later that month. The government has a lack of awareness of the global Islamophobia phenomenon and how it interferes with Canadian affairs, writes Taha Ghayyur.
