House of Commons passes anti-Islamophobia motion. (2017, March 23). CBC News.

After the Quebec City Mosque shooting (2016), the House of Commons passed M-103, a non-binding motion condemning Islamophobia and other forms of discrimination. Tabled by Liberal Member of Parliament, Iqra Khalid, the Motion calls on the government to: condemn Islamophobia and all forms of discrimination; eliminate hate and fear; to compel the Commons heritage to develop a study to reduce and eliminate hate. The motion, however, caused controversy amongst the population. Opponents of the motion argue that M-103 was a form of shariah and would infringe on free speech. Khalid also received death threats as a result of this motion.


The Teaching Against Islamophobia resources were developed with funding support from the Law Foundation of BC, and the Centre for Comparative Muslim Studies at SFU.
