Trudeau Must Be Held Accountable For Giving Canada Summer Jobs Funding To Organization That Supported Islamist Terrorist Groups


It’s yet another double standard by Trudeau, who took funding away from pro-life Christian organizations, yet is funding an organization that supported Islamist terror groups and another group whose Imam made hateful anti-gay comments.

Justin Trudeau is taking Canada Summer Jobs funding away from faith organizations that don’t sign his ‘values test,’ which demands that they sign a statement going against many of their core beliefs.

This has resulted in many organizations – including many Christian organizations – being unable to provide jobs to young people, even though those jobs have nothing to do with any area of controversy.

And yet, it seems that Justin Trudeau isn’t applying his new values test equally.

According to a report by Candice Malcolm in the Toronto Sun, groups tied to radical Islam and hateful anti-gay rhetoric are getting funding under the Canada Summer Jobs program.

Writes Malcolm, “According to a government database listing recipients of the Canada Summer Jobs grant, both the Canada Arab Federation (CAF) and the Anatolia Islamic Centre have been approved for federal funding in 2018. In 2009, CAF was de-funded over the group’s extremism and support for terrorist groups – a decision made by the previous Harper Conservative government and backed up by a federal judge.”

Meanwhile, the Imam of the Anatolia Islamic Centre Mustafa Khattab said “For me, someone who is homosexual is like someone who has diabetes or someone who has cancer or aids.” 

Yet, the Anatolia Islamic Centre is still getting Canada Summer Jobs funding.

If a Christian orginization had made those hateful comments, you can bet that Justin Trudeau would be all over it, making speeches and demanding legislation. Yet, when the topic of Islam comes up, Trudeau falls silent.

This double-standard is the height of hypocrisy, and it once again shows Trudeau’s divisive governing style. After all, when Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre recently pointed out that an organization in his riding that provides vacations to low-income families was stripped of funding, Trudeau attacked the group in Question Period, saying they were against the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

That raises the obvious question of why Trudeau would take funding away from the organization in Poilievre’s riding, but keep funding a group tied to terrorist groups and a group spouting hateful anti-gay rhetoric?

Keep in mind, Trudeau is also funding the radical anti-pipeline Dogwood group. So, under Trudeau organizations that showed support for Islamist terrorism and radical anti-pipeline activists get funding, while Christian groups and other faith groups get their funding taken away. How is that acceptable in a free country?

The Canadian people deserve to have these questions answered, and the Opposition needs to put the pressure on the government to explain this insane hypocrisy. The PM must answer to Canadians for it personally, rather than deflecting onto somebody else. After all, he’s the one who imposed the ‘values test,’ and he’s responsible for the double-standard.

And if Trudeau refuses to provide real answers, then Liberal MPs need to wake up, start serving their country instead of their party, and demand that Trudeau be held accountable.

  1. We know the Boy will never change his spots. What we have to do is change him out at the next election along with Wynne.

  2. Nothing about Justin Trudeau surprises me anymore. He’s an anti-Christian bigot through and through. I’m sorry but it’s true; he’s not even hiding it. He’s the Devil’s spawn. It’s time we reappropriated our country.

    1. You must think people are stupid and cannot see the CSJ records from 2010 to 2013 which shows that the Harper government gave money to Muslim Association of Canada and Canadian Arab Federation. The proof is all in proactive disclosure under the section of Service Canada. Therefore, you may suggest that he is the devil’s spawn as you call it but the Harper government gave money to those organizations for years. If you believe Sun’s article from Thursday and Friday and the one from yesterday then they should have known, but obviously the Harper government still gave the money. I guess Conservatives are easily led.

      1. Yes the Harper gave money to these organization BUT, Harper discontinued funding these Islamic extreemist organizations, like Hamas, when it was discovered that they not only had links to terrorism but where supporting terrorism.

        1. That is wrong because even up until 2012 and 2013 after the case I saw on proactive disclosure that money was still given to those organizations. The case was supposedly in 2009. It was given still even 4 years after the case.

  3. But Fernando! You KNOW he won’t answer any questions on this topic! Every time he responds to an question in the house, it all comes down to ‘sunny ways’, ‘how diverse we are’, or ‘the budget balances itself’. Along with imagined ills that ‘is the Harper Government’s fault’!!
    You are a wonderful journalist and must know many people. Is there someone you know who can tell us how we can get rid of the Trudeau Government before the elections? I realize that his father made it so that there was no way we could impeach the sitting PM – but outside of some Liberals getting fed up and crossing the floor, there has to be some other way!
    Our country is being destroyed. We cannot wait until the fall of 2019!!

    1. Hi Lynn, thank you for the kind words.

      At this point, we will have to wait until 2019, unless some Liberal party members cross the floor – which is unfortunately very unlikely in our rigidly partisan system. In the meantime, we all need to talk to as many people as we can and spread the word about the damage being done by the Trudeau government. Also, supporting leaders like Doug Ford can begin to turn the tide ahead of 2019.

  4. This pretentious leader of Canada, Trudeau just refuses to accept that we have a charter of rights and freedoms, which his father wrote and he claims to be defending, yet refuses to admit his guilt in violating. Either we have a true defender of the charter of rights and freedoms or we have a deceitful fraud of a prime minister , who is just using the charter of rights and freedoms as a shield for his own ends. Namely that of being a racist , arrogant and deceitful PM, whose goal is to undermine our democracy and split Canada’s unity and govern from a position of strength. This decision is consistent with his other decisions concerning terrorists and terrorism, that he likes to reward them. Whereas the average citizen is left to fight him and his decisions and we are called racists, bigots, and islamophobes for having the strength and temerity to challenge him and his deceitful arrogant hypocrisy. There has to be a way to stop him and remove Trudeau from office before 2019.

    1. The right wing are the ones that are dangerous. Just look at the vile comments used against Rachel Notley which has been trumpeted by Chris Alexander and Kellie Leitch. Also, the Harper regime did divide on minority grounds, cultural grounds, religious grounds, and many other grounds. They have proven that with their maternal health program which was divisive. There was also their hotline for snitching against Muslims, their favourite group to target. Sun Media chains and Rebel Media have been known to scapegoat. The right wing populists in Canada are bigots, racists and Islamophobes because many of them like Kevin J Johnston do target Muslims and have used terrible language to the point of wanting genocide being used against the Muslim world and the Middle East. It is all over his website. Do not forget that Kevin J Johnston, leading up to Doug Ford becoming leader of the PC party of Ontario, also introduced and asked questions of people for Doug Ford. That proves that Ford is associated with white supremacists, far-right social conservatives and extremists. Do not forget based on the CSJ program that Harper from 2010 to 2013 funded the MAC and CAF. It is all over proactive disclosure online on the Service Canada site. Too bad that Spencer Fernando wishes to silence people and wishes to not let other points of view challenge him. That says a lot more about the man than anything else. He is completely in the tank with far-right populism and dividing Canadians, when Canadians have always been welcoming, open and tolerant. It is a shame that the Conservative party of Canada is going down the same road as Trump which is about dividing people and targeting and scapegoating like fascists in the past.
