Canadian Muslim leaders ask for national day of remembrance Jan. 29
A coalition of Canadian Muslim leaders is asking the federal government to recognize Jan. 29 — the day of the Quebec City mosque shooting — as a national day of remembrance and action against Islamophobia.
The call for declaring Jan. 29 a symbolic day against Islamophobia came in an open letter signed by Muslim leaders and addressed to the Canadian people and politicians.
The letter was read during a news conference on Parliament Hill Wednesday by Ihsaan Gardee, the executive director of the National Council of Canadian Muslims.
