It is no secret that Quebec is divided over the controversial Bill 21. This bill will prohibit civil servants from wearing certain religious symbols. It has drawn lots of disapproval from both Quebecers and other. But, it’s crucial to know that Premier Justin Trudeau has taken a move in the right direction by appointing Amira Elghawaby as his special representative on the Islamophobia dossier. The well-known human rights activist Ms. Elghawaby is vocal in her support for Bill 21 and the associated questions. Her appointment is a sign that the Premier is serious about dealing with the discrimination issues and prejudice against Muslims throughout Canada.
1. Amira Elghawaby is appointed to the position by Justin Trudeau as Prime Minister to be his representative as a member of the Islamophobia File.
The gravity of this situation can be seen in the wake of the announcement of Justin Trudeau’s shoddy handling of the anti Islamophobia initiative. We must first look at the reasons Trudeau chose Amira Elghawaby to be his representative in the Islamophobia dossier. Elghawaby is an eminent Muslim human rights activist with a decades of advocacy the rights of marginalized groups (including Muslim and racialized ones), is an example of this. Trudeau elected Elghawaby as an advocate for these groups and ensure their voices were heard in discussions about Islamophobia, other forms, and the systemic racism.
2. How hard is it for Trudeau to be appointed as a representative with a focus on Islamophobia and anti-Islamophobia within Quebec?
The latest news regarding Canadian Premier Justin Trudeau’s appointment of a Special Representative on Systemic Racism and Religious Discrimination in the wake of the tragedy of his nation’s anti-Islamophobia tragedy, indicates the government is completely disconnected from its constituents. This raises several questions as to how Trudeau’s decision to designate a special rep is perceived by Quebecers. The primary issue Trudeau faces is how to balance his efforts to combat discrimination and racism in the face of the fact that Quebecers tend to be sceptical about an appointment to a specially appointed representative. There’s a concern among many that this decision could be a stepping stone to an expansion in the exercise of power by government agencies and increased intrusion into the private lives of residents.
3. What exactly does Bill 21 have to do with Trudeau’s selection of Amira Elghawaby for the role of Islamophobia File Manager?
Recent news about Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s response to the anti-Islamophobia concerns has shown a government deeply disconnected from its constituents. The disconnect was further pointed out by the Trudeau’s choice of Amira Elghawaby to oversee the case on Islamophobia and Islamophobia, in the wake of the controversy surrounding Bill 21 in Quebec. It is a controversial bill that Bill 21 is widely viewed as Islamophobic and was widely opposed by the international community. The Bill has also brought up concerns over the morality and ethics of Canada. As a result, the appointment of Minister Trudeau’s Elghawaby been heavily scrutinized, because it seems to be in contradiction of his own stance regarding the matter.
Justin Trudeau’s effort to stop discrimination is a risk, however it could be an intelligent move if Quebecers recognize that Canada respects their culture and safeguards their culture. Trudeau’s support for The Bloc Quebecois is an attempt to bridge the divide between centrist nationalists and hardline separatists by giving Quebeckers an opportunity to protect their cultural identity and their autonomy in Canada. While it is uncertain whether the plan will succeed within Quebec, Trudeau has shown his willingness to question long-held political norms to reach his ambitions.
