Developer vows to go ahead with Montreal-area Muslim housing project despite opposition
A tax accountant is still hoping to go ahead with a plan to build dozens of homes for Muslim families in the Montreal suburb of Brossard despite opposition from much of Quebec's political establishment, including the premier.
Nabil Warda, 68, says he feels "drained" by the criticism, adding that much of the concern stems from misunderstanding about the real estate development plan to build a community for about 100 Muslim families.
The main goal is to provide a way for Muslims to buy homes without taking on traditional mortgages, which are prohibited under certain interpretations of Islamic law, he said in a phone interview Wednesday.
