Islamophobia: the ugly side of the municipal election?
For three Muslim candidates, Toronto's municipal election took a very nasty turn this week.
On Thursday night, a Purolator truck driver allegedly hurled garbage and shouted "terrorist" at a team of volunteers planting signs for Ward 2 council candidate Munira Abukar.
On Friday, a Purolator spokesperson issued a prepared statement that said the company is "deeply troubled about this report" and is "taking this matter seriously." The spokesperson said Purolator President and CEO Patrick Nangle contacted Abukar on Friday morning "to apologize and express concern."
