November 10, 2023 – Ottawa, Ontario – Canadian Human Rights Commission

Today, the Canadian Human Rights Commission’s Interim Chief Commissioner, Charlotte-Anne Malischewski, issues the following statement

"The Canadian Human Rights Commission is devastated by the horrific violence and humanitarian tragedy taking place in Israel and Palestine. For many in Canada, these catastrophic events are deeply personal and painful. They evoke historic, intergenerational trauma and are causing immense grief, fear, distress, and anger.

 

We are deeply concerned by the recent dramatic rise in Islamophobia, antisemitism, and racism-fuelled hate in our country.

 

When hate manifests in our communities, it is a threat to public safety, democracy, and human rights.

Our governments have a responsibility to ensure that our public spaces — both virtual and physical — are safe for all.

Current events in our country have underscored the urgency that now is the time for new legislation to address hate in Canada with a coordinated and comprehensive approach.

The Government must act now."
