Trudeau: “Canada is stronger because of the contributions of its Muslim community”

In his traditional greeting to the Reviving the Islamic Spirit in Toronto (December 23-25, 2016), Prime Minister Justin Trudeau commended the Muslim community for its contributions to Canada and reiterated his commitment to combat Islamophobia and politics of hate and division.

The following is the transcript of Trudeau’s statement (to watch the video click HERE):

Thank you for this opportunity to share a few words with you. This year, we celebrate our 150 anniversary which is a testament to the dedication and hard work of many organizers and volunteers.

Today, we come together as friends celebrating common values that unite us all, values like empathy, generosity, acceptance and respect. These are tenets of our Charter of Rights and Freedoms, vital principles on which Canada is found.

As prime minister, I want to make sure my actions and words reflect the what brings Canadians together.

So let me be clear, Canada is stronger because of the contributions of its Muslim community. We are stronger because of you. And that’s why every day we just chose hope over fear and stand up to the politics of hate and division.

That is why our government supports initiatives that encourage inclusion and equality, combats Islamophobia and strengthens the protection of our civil rights… [French] Thank you very much for being here. May peace and blessing be upon you.”

  1. its been more than 48 hours no mention of contrubutions

  2. and how many votes he brought in

  3. LOL What a goof,,,,,,,,should be saying what a drain…..

  4. He is a complete idiot unfit to lead

  5. What do you mean they haven’t contributed. They voted Liberal and that is number one in Trudeau’s world.

  6. The son like his father Who has supported communists

  7. Oh and rampant pedophilia in the Christian faith.

  8. What about the crusades. Don’t forget that gong show.

  9. Sid Zwirsky ….not sure what world you are living in where Christianity doesn’t cause any problems or hasn’t been a “death cult” of their own. Keep burying your head in the sand if that is what you believe. For example more people have died of aids in Africa due to the Pope’s stance on condoms than have ever been killed by Islamic terrorists (yes millions of people….aids is bad…but not as bad as condoms…what a joke). Residential schools in Canada…that was a real win for Christianity….and similar things Christians did in other countries around the world. How about hundred of years of torture and burning “witches” to death. Seventy percent of people in Canadian jails are Christians less than three percent atheists. So I would argue Atheists are more moral people. I could go on for ever about the horrible things Christians have done in the name of Christianity. There are many Christians that are good people just like there are many Good Islamic people. There are also horrible people in both cults. I stand firm that the world would be a much better place without religion.

  10. Startthedeportations

    What contributions? They haven’t done a damn thing in Canada except make trouble, complain, threaten and piss on Canadian values by not standing for the Canadian anthem, having their little tyrants attack Canadian school children.

  11. Trudeau: “Canada is stronger because of the contributions of its Muslim community”

    Imagine, the Ayatollah of Iran on the day of Ramadan say ‘Iran is stronger because of the contributions of the Christian community’

  12. What contributions? Ignorance, dishonesty, violence, welfare fraud and mayhem to be dealt with on a daily basis?

  13. How many were at the Battle of Vimy Ridge as my Grandfather was in April 1917

  14. Could he explain how he arrived at this conclusion, give us details. I’d like to understand.

  15. he nuts, nuts, and more nunts. please, someone out there stop him.

  16. Get this guy out as soon as possible. What a disgrace.

  17. All you have to do is look at Germany,,Sweden,Denmark UK and most of Europe to see what muslims are all about.As for Trudeau’s approval rating,it was 51% not 55 and its going down.He’s wasted over 600 billion in just over a year.As for Harper.He stood against the UN and there NWO agenda and defended Canada.Wasn’t perfect but so much better then Trudeau.

  18. Amazing Muslims are not demanding Shari’a Law and Shari’a Court or any Shari’a Zone.

  19. Andrew Karvonen first Islam is Not a religion–it is a death Cult – Christians do Not promote anything evil, so why would you want to get rid of it,? and end up being like you living a life with no future.or hope. if you believe that your actions in life have no consequence –you are in for a rude awakening soon.

  20. The security costs are astronomical. Why not bring in more immigrants from countries that share our values?

  21. Listen pressy!!!!
    You and the islam turban g-hads’s are the only ones happy muslims are here. Combat all you want. Your distroying this country with dedt and this mentality.

  22. Please; Wake up from your false heavenly dream Mr. Trudeau…

  23. It is said “the apple never falls far from the tree”, like father like son, Canada will need years to recover from the blatant treachery of this fake lying human. With this Trudeau however, there will likely be suffering & dying as a result of his submission to “the religion of peace”. Great job 40% of my countryfolk, I can only hope some of you will pay attention in 3 years.

  24. Three more years of this hell!!! What a joke !

  25. Trudeau really means well, he’s just been brainwashed by their ideology…you know they say that the road to hell is paved with good intentions, right? Trudeau has a lot of good intentions!

  26. We are always strong we don’t need those bad people

  27. I’m still waiting to see these so-called contributions.

  28. How about get rid of all religion, the world would be a much better place.

  29. Ron Ulmer here is one solution, amend the charter of rights to protect the general population from a subversive intolerant religion. Freedom of religion is one thing and welcome, freedom of religion to change a society to suit itself is the real cause of the issue and not the opposition to it, let’s keep the order of events clear.

  30. traitorous bastard should be hanged

  31. Islamophobia isn’t the problem; Islam in it’s intolerance of others and refusal to adapt itself to the modernized world is the root cause of the problem. Politicians such as Trudeau in their naivety are actually accomplishing the opposite of what they state they are trying to prevent. There is a long list of countries that would disagree with Islam being a positive influence on their society.
