How Canada Protects Sharia Law

Such intimidation elicits self-censorship and an incremental downward spiral for Canada’s proudly modern, liberal society.
Christine Douglass-Williams was a director of the Canadian Race Relations Foundation (CRRF) from 2012 to late 2017, and she has documented her story in a courageous new book: Fired by the Canadian Government for Criticizing Islam. Published in September 2018 by the Center for Security Policy—a neoconservative-leaning think tank in Washington—this 103-page story leaves no doubt about the swift enforcement of political correctness under the Liberal Party government.
A mulatto migrant from Trinidad and Tobago and self-described “visible minority,” Williams is an accomplished journalist, an expert on Islam, and author of “The Challenge of Modernizing Islam.” As a widely read contributor to Jihad Watch and sought-after speaker, she became a victim of her own success. Her profile rose to include engagements throughout Canada and abroad, notably in Iceland alongside Robert Spencer, author of The Truth about Muhammad and a fellow of the David Horowitz Freedom Center.

Her concerns about the nature of Sharia law, particularly its implications for women and migrant integration, were out in the open and never kept a secret. However, as her perspective garnered traction, murmurings grew.
