The murder of four Muslims in London, Ontario prompted the Government of Canada to hold a National Summit on Islamophobia to address hate against Muslims and other minority groups. Muslim organizations, such as the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM), put forth their own proposals to combat Islamophobia. Some individuals, however, are doubtful of the Summit, considering whether any tangible actions will be produced. Individuals identify potential barriers to implementing change and policies regarding Islamophobia such as the type of political party in power, ignoring the commitments, as well as the government’s complicity in reproducing Islamophobia.
