Black Lives Matter Canada Co-Founder: Blacks ‘Superhuman,’ Whites ‘Subhuman’

Racist.

 is a student at the University of Toronto’s Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) who is currently working towards her M.A in Social Justice Education (with collaboration in Womyn & Gender Studies). She’s one of the co-founders of Black Lives Matter Toronto, and the former VP Equity for the Scarborough Campus Students’ Union.  GenuineWitty

A co-founder of Black Lives Matter Toronto argued that white people are “recessive genetic defects” and purportedly mused about how the race could be “wiped out,” according to a post on what appears to be her Facebook page.

Yusra Khogali has faced increased scrutiny over the past year after BLM Toronto gained political influence following their disruption of the Toronto Pride parade and confrontations with Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne.

On Friday, Toronto Police announced they would not participate in this year’s upcoming parade. This has been a longstanding demand of BLM TO and one that the board of Pride Toronto recently backed in a controversial vote.

Khogali has a track record of inflammatory, divisive rhetoric. Only last week during a protest in front of the US consulate Khogali shouted into a microphone that “Justin Trudeau is a white supremacist terrorist” and urged the crowd to “rise up and fight back.”

“Look at us, we have the numbers,” she said.

She also faced controversy in the news for a tweet posted a year ago stating: “Plz Allah give me strength to not cuss/kill these men and white folks out here today.”

While these remarks alarmed many Canadians, they pale in comparison to a statement numerous sources forwarded to the Sun that Khogali appears to have posted on Facebook in late 2015.

“Whiteness is not humxness,” the statement begins. “infact, white skin is sub-humxn.” The post goes on to present a genetics-based argument centred on melanin and enzyme.

“White ppl are recessive genetic defects. this is factual,” the post reads towards the end. “white ppl need white supremacy as a mechanism to protect their survival as a people because all they can do is produce themselves. black ppl simply through their dominant genes can literally wipe out the white race if we had the power to.”

Khogali did not respond to requests for comment from the Sun.  TorantoSun

Christian Concert Banned From Toronto’s Yonge-Dundas Square

Yonge Dundas Square photoThe city of Toronto, in Ontario, Canada, has banned an annual Christian music festival because they sing about Jesus Christ!

Let’s quit the multicultural crap, Canada. Let’s call it like it is: Our society views some cultures and creeds as more equal than others. Simply put: Christians are fair game for unfair treatment.

The latest case of unabashed anti-Christian bigotry hails from the heart of our nation’s most populous city. A Christian concert has literally been banned from Toronto’s public square.

Voices of the Nations (VOTN) has been using city property since 2006 for their annual multi-denominational event that celebrates Christianity through peaceful praise and worship. While the group used Yonge-Dundas Square for the past five years without issue, the City of Toronto is refusing to grant VOTN a permit for next year’s music festival.

According to unelected city bureaucrats, the group is guilty of proselytizing — something forbidden under the square’s Performance and Display Policy.

To be clear, proselytizing is defined as the “attempt to convert someone from one religion, belief or opinion to another.”

However, Natalie Belman, manager of events for Yonge-Dundas Square, appears to hold an unorthodox interpretation of the term. In a recorded conversation with VOTN organizers, Belman said: “It doesn’t matter if it’s speaking or singing. Either way, ‘If you’re praising Jesus’ and ‘Praise the Lord’ and ‘There’s no God like Jehovah’ — that type of thing — that’s proselytizing.” Meanwhile, Belman offered no evidence of particular artists or performances that attempted to induce passersby to convert to Christianity.

But organizers of the banned music festival don’t intend on taking the city’s decision lying down. Armed with a petition containing some 23,000 signatures, the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms is now threatening the City of Toronto with legal action.

The merits of the case are straightforward. Canadians possess the fundamental freedoms of expression and religion, guaranteed by our Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The city’s decision in this case constitutes a direct violation of both.  Toronto Sun

University of Toronto Alters Gender-neutral Bathroom Policy After Two Reports Of Voyeurism

boygirlbathroomsignGender-neutral bathrooms are unsafe.  The University of Toronto has decreased the number of gender-neutral bathrooms after voyeurism reports by two women. “The purpose of this temporary measure is to provide a safe space for the women,,, in a single-gender washroom.”

The University of Toronto has decreased the number of gender-neutral bathrooms in one of its colleges after two women became victims of voyeurism when they were filmed while showering.

Toronto Police Const. Victor Kwong said Monday that two women in separate instances at the Whitney Hall residence reported that they saw a cellphone reach over the shower-stall dividers in an attempt to record them. Police have yet to find any information about the culprit, but the investigation is ongoing.

At least one gender-neutral washroom remains on each floor.

Melinda Scott, the dean of students at University College, said some bathrooms in Whitney Hall have now been designated specifically for residents who identify as men or women. However, several gender-neutral bathrooms remain.

“The purpose of this temporary measure is to provide a safe space for the women who have been directly impacted by the incidents of voyeurism and other students who may feel more comfortable in a single-gender washroom,” said Scott.

According to the Varsity campus newspaper, the two cellphone incidents occurred Sept. 15 and Sept. 19.

Scott says the college will be revaluating the designation of the bathrooms in the coming weeks. “The UC Residences continue to work in close collaboration with the Community Safety Office and Campus Police to ensure that the residences are a safe space for our students.”  The Star

Toronto Taxpayers Fund Muslim-only Apartment Building

f8082d7a0a448c0badd530fd_150_TorontoA large apartment complex in the city of Toronto subsidized by the government allows Muslims only. The City of Toronto provided a $1.7 million grant to the Muslim only apartment complex run by Ahmadiyya Abode of Peace, which is Islamic.

The discrimination came to the media’s attention when 11,000 handicapped and low-income people received a letter from the from Housing Connections that they were being dropped from the list at Ahmadiyya Abode of Peace, because they were not Muslim.  Prior to this year the building was open to anyone.

Rose Raill, who had been waiting for over a decade for a vacancy, told the news outlet she received a letter stating that “if none of the individuals in your household are a member of Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at … you will be removed from the waiting list.” “That’s just being racist,” she said. “This is multicultural country. The government has to step­up to this.”

Another rejected applicant, a wheelchair­bound young man aged just 21, has been placed at a severe disadvantage after he has struggled to find a building with disability access.

Families are on the Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC) waiting list for years. There are over 90,000 people on the (TCHC) waiting list.

A young wheelchair user has been taken off the waiting list for a publicly subsidized apartment because he is not a member of the Muslim community that established the building — a practice that, while legal, raises concerns that accommodations for cultural and religious groups could be limiting access to affordable housing.

According to a letter that arrived at his mother’s house last week, Austin Lewis, 21, was removed from the waiting list at the Ahmadiyya Abode of Peace building on Finch Ave. W in North York because he is not a member of their faith.

“It was mostly confusing, more than anything else,” he said. “Why would a government segregate its own building?”

The 16-storey building, which provides a range of services to its residents including a prayer room that accommodates 250, was actually approved in the 1990s as part of a provincial program to encourage non-profits and religious groups to build affordable housing, according to its property manager. Before this year, the building was open to anyone and those already on the waiting list maintain their priority, whatever their faith. TheStar

In Toronto there are eight such buildings catering to Muslims, Macedonians, Germans and seniors who are Christian, Chinese, Greek, Hungarian or Lithuanian. City subsidized apartment buildings should not have segregation policies.

Two White Students Barred From Meeting At Ryerson University

ryersonuniversityTwo white students at Ryerson University in Toronto were barred last week from a public meeting of the Racialized Students’ Collective,  a group funded by mandatory student fees, and according to its Facebook page, is dedicated to “building an anti-racism climate on campus.”

First-year journalism students Julia Knope and Trevor Hewitt attended the meeting as part of a class assignment.  They were asked to leave by the group organizer Chrys Saget-Richard.

“Julia and I walked into the room and after about four seconds, was approached by Saget-Richard and asked if we were there for the meeting. I answered yes. Saget-Richard then asked me if we had ever been racialized before. I replied that no, I had not,” Hewitt explained to Campus Reform.

According to Hewitt, “Saget-Richard then explained that the room was a safe space and that if we had not been racialized we would have to leave.”

That is racist and they should have replied “Yes, right now we are being racialized”.  “It seemed really ironic to me that the meeting was about racialization and they were prohibiting certain people from entering,” Knope said.

RSU coordinator Vajdaan Tanveer told The Ryersonian over the phone that members of the collective have requested a safe space on campus, where they can have an open conversation.

“We don’t want (racialized) students to feel intimidated, that they can’t speak their mind because they are afraid of being judged or something they say might be used against them,” he said.

When asked about Hewitt and Knope’s incident, Tanveer confirmed they couldn’t attend the meeting because they were white. Ryersonian

The event was titled “Building an Anti-Racism Community on Campus.”  The Racialized Students’ Collective Facebook page states that the group “opposes all forms of racism and work towards community wellness for students,” that they focus on “building an anti-racist network” and “fostering an anti-racist environment through campus-wide services, campaigns and events.”

Canada Mystery Tunnel Solved

interior-image-of-mystery-tunnel-torontoUpdate:  Mystery Tunnel In Canada

The mystery of the tunnel near York University and the Rexall Centre has been solved.

Two young men who built a mysterious tunnel in Toronto had no criminal intent – they just wanted a man cave, police said Monday. ‘It was a place for them to hang out. They started out as goal to make a cool place and that’s what they did,’ Kwong said. DailyMail

With the enormous interest generated by the media, police received information on Friday, February 27, 2015, which enabled investigators to identify two men. The two men told investigators they built the tunnel for personal reasons. Investigators have verified their account and are satisfied there was neither criminal intent nor any threat to the people or city of Toronto. The investigation is concluded.  Toronto Police

 

Mystery Tunnel In Canada

Interior of mystery tunnel-Toronto

A sophisticated tunnel was found in Toronto, Canada near the venue for the summer Pan American Games.  The tunnel was found by a municipal worker near York University and the Rexall Centre.

The tunnel was dug in the woods near Toronto’s Rexall Centre and York University’s Keele campus. It was large enough for a person to stand in, at around 2½ metres in height, and was about seven metres long. The tunnel had lights inside, powered by a generator, and the walls and ceiling were reinforced…

Authorities have essentially ruled out the possibility that the tunnel was going to be used as a drug lab or marijuana grow-op, according to sources. It likely took weeks if not longer to dig, and the earth excavated from the tunnel appears to have been removed from the site to help avoid detection.

Toronto police have refused to comment on the mystery tunnel, but are expected to hold a press conference about it Tuesday.

Tennis Canada, which operates in the Rexall Centre, is co-operating with the police investigation, a spokesperson said.

The Rexall Centre, Canada’s national tennis facility, is set to be a tennis venue for this summer’s Pan Am Games and the Parapan Am Games
