Petition to the House of Commons in Parliament assembled

Whereas:
  • Canada is open and welcoming to peaceful persons professing any or no faith or creed;
  • Acts of violence and bigotry directed against religious believers are inimical to a free, peaceful, and plural society; and
  • Acts such as the June 23, 1985, bombing of Air India Flights 182 and 301, the September 15, 2001, firebombing of the Hindu Samaj Temple and the Hamilton Mountain Mosque, the April 5, 2004, firebombing of Montreal’s United Talmud Torah Jewish school, and the January 29, 2017, murder of Muslims at the Quebec City Islamic Cultural Centre are emblematic and contemptible examples of such violence.
We, the undersigned, Residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons in Parliament assembled to adopt Motion M-153 to declare January 29 of every year as National Day of Solidarity with Victims of Anti-religious Bigotry and Violence.
