In an effort to stamp out racism experienced by Muslims, the Liberal Party of Canada is considering adopting a policy to aggressively eliminate Islamophobia.
Omar Raza, director of the Windsor West Federal Liberal Association, is making the pitch during the Liberal convention in Winnipeg. He wants the party to strike a task force to tackle the issue.
"This just reaffirms what the Liberal Party stands for and reaffirms that national and international leadership," he told CBC News from Winnipeg before the vote. "We're here, not only to support our neighbours, but we're here to support each other and this policy helps do that."
