Dutch Politician in Toronto Calls for Ban on Muslim Immigration
Last Monday's National Post carried a story about a speech given before a Toronto audience on the subject of Islam and immigration by Dutch politician Geert Wilders. According to the article, Wilders, a controversial figure, stated that "Our Western culture is far superior to Islamic culture . . . and only once we are convinced of this will be able to defend our civilization." Wilders went on to call for the suspension of immigration of Muslims into Western countries, including Canada. The article also carried comments from a band of protestors outside the speech, who labelled Wilders' comments hate speech.
