All Canadians have the right to feel safe in their communities and across the country. It is our collective responsibility to ensure that our communities do not allow the promotion of hate.
It is not enough for governments to recognize the problem, and not take the necessary action to counteract these troubling facts. MPs must continue to fight for people and their safety. Canadians want action to combat racism and hate now to save lives and keep people safe.
As a Canadian voter, I’m seeking the support of Canada’s government and all MPs for three legislative measures in this 44th Parliament. These are critical tools to fighting the rise of hate and violence, and making communities across Canada safer for everyone:: Motion M-14, Hate Crimes and Incidents Measures and Bill C-229, Banning Symbols of Hate Act and Bill C-292 Act respecting transparency for online algorithms.
It is critical that Canada prioritizes and concretely addresses systemic racism and discrimination for a just recovery, where no one is left behind. We must condemn all forms of hate in our communities as it creates unsafe conditions for Indigenous people, Black, Asian and other racially marginalized communities.
We all need to work together to ensure organized hate groups aren’t tolerated in any way. We must continue to take a strong stand against all forms of hatred and racism.
