Parliamentary committee agrees to study antisemitism, Islamophobia on and off campus


CBC reports that a parliamentary committee has passed a motion to conduct studies of antisemitism and Islamophobia on and off university campuses and propose ways to tackle the problem. Liberal MP Anthony Housefather reportedly put forward a motion asking for a study of antisemitism on and off campus, which the members of the committee amended to include Islamophobia. “We need to hear from Universities Canada, from the presidents of universities, what they are doing to protect Jewish students, and we need to hear from Jewish students as to what they’re experiencing on campus,” Housefather told the committee.
