With the strong backing of Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government, Canada’s Parliament passed a motion this afternoon 201 to 91 that critics say singles out Islam for special protection.

As was expected, the motion was passed along party lines, with the Liberals and New Democrats supporting it, while the majority of Conservatives opposed it.

Tabled by Muslim liberal MP Iqra Khalid, M-103 urges the federal government to “condemn Islamophobia” and to “develop a whole-of-government approach to reducing or eliminating systemic racism and religious discrimination including Islamophobia.”

The term “Islamophobia” is nowhere defined in the motion.

MPs passed the bill despite a new Angus Reid poll showing that 71 percent of Canadians would not have voted for the measure.

The poll found that “if Canadians and not their elected representatives were voting, M-103 would fail” with 42 percent voting against it and 29 percent abstaining. The poll found that only 29 percent would vote in favor.
