‘Enormous’ spike in hate crime reports in Montreal since mosque attack

Canadian campuses radicalizing and destabilizing youth?
MONTREAL — An “enormous number” of alleged hate crimes have been reported in Montreal in the wake of Sunday’s shooting massacre at a mosque in Quebec City, officials say.

On Wednesday, the head of Montreal’s anti-radicalization centre told the city’s executive committee that the centre had received 24 calls since Sunday, including 10 related to Islamophobia and four related to the extreme right.

Herman Deparice-Okomba said four of those cases had been transferred to police.

“It (24) is an enormous number in 72 hours,” he said.

Deparice-Okomba’s comments echoed those of Montreal police Chief Philippe Pichet, who told reporters the day prior that the force had also seen a spike in the number of reported hate crimes since the mosque attack.  (more...)
