A group of Asian protesters converged on Queen's Park Sunday to demand an apology from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for his handling of the hijab hoax.
The protesters say they feel insulted that a girl lied that she was assaulted by an Asian man and say Trudeau needs to make amends to their community.
"He needs to say sorry to Asian people," said Zou Qian, one of about 30 people who showed up. "We need equality and justice."
On Jan. 5, Khawlah Noman, 11, claimed she was attacked by an Asian man who cut her hijab with scissors while she was walking to school in Scarborough.
