The Trudeau regime is misleading Canadians

A few weeks ago I reported that the Trudeau regime removed references to Sikh extremism from the 2018 government report on terrorist threats to Canada, but it left references to Shia and Sunni Islamic in the report:

Now I see, in a report by Stewart Bell and Abigail Bimman of Global News, that “The government has again revised a report that is supposed to update Canadians on the major terrorist threats they face, removing all references to Islamist extremism … [but, while] … the report, first released in December, had initially identified attackers “inspired by violent Sunni Islamist ideology” as the main terrorist threat to Canada, that line has now been cut … [and] … All mentions of “Sunni” and “Shia” extremism were also taken out of the annual report, along with section headings on both types of terrorism.

I guess that if you’re going to mislead Canadians about one source of terrorist threats then it is only fair to whitewash all sources of terrorist threats … but I wonder: is a tiny handful of really deplorably ignorant white supremacists are still OK to be singled out?

SahotaRuby_LibThe article says that “Liberal MP Ruby Sahota … [said] … The report no longer contains the terms ‘Sikh,’ ‘Shia,’ and ‘Sunni,’” she wrote. “Words matter. Our agencies and departments must never equate any one community or entire religions with extremism.”” She’s right, of course, words do matter and it matters that the Trudeau government is trying to mislead Canadians about very real threats to our security in order to curry favour with this, that and the other ethnic group.
