The Globe and Mail has performed a public service today by publishing an opinion from an Ottawa writer and “human-rights advocate”.
Amira Elghawaby was like many Canadians, upset by the news of the attack on an eleven year old girl last Friday in Toronto. She is crying again at the revelation that the attack did not happen.
Now don’t misunderstand; the “human-rights advocate” doesn’t wish the story was true. Her concern is apparently that the relief many people feel now at finding out an eleven year old girl told a big lie is that the real climate of hatred and bigotry in Canada will be overshadowed by this hoax.
Elghawaby wags her finger at us and reminds us, with several examples, that Canadian children are struggling under this culture of hatred every day.
