Members of Parliament of different political stripes have been getting an earful about a controversial anti-Islamophobia motion passed last spring.
On Monday, the House of Commons heritage committee began a study of racism and religious discrimination required by M-103, a motion whose sponsor, Liberal MP Iqra Khalid, received death threats and hate mail after she tabled it in December 2016.
She’s not the only MP who’s been hearing about it. A number of committee members remarked that they’ve been contacted repeatedly about the issue.
