Brace yourselves, parliamentarians. Tarek Fatah is coming to town! The popular Toronto-based Sun columnist and media personality is trekking up to Ottawa to testify at the controversial M-103 hearings being held by the heritage committee on Wednesday.
Fatah will be the first major speaker following Liberal MP Iqra Khalid's Monday appearance that started off the whole process. He's been a firm critic of the motion that singles out the ill-defined phrase Islamophobia for possible special treatment in its bid to tackle discrimination, writing columns across the Sun chain on the issue.
"I hope to make the MPs realize that if they include the words 'denouncing Islamophobia' in their proposals, they will infringe on the inalienable right of Muslim Canadians to critique our religion as has been the rich tradition that has been stifled by Mullahs, Kings and Caliphs by murdering us," Fatah said Tuesday in advance of the committee hearing.
