Latulippe bashed Muslim immigrants

CANADA - The new man in charge of a Civil Rights and Democracy organization in Montreal has been appointed by Prime Minister Stephen Harper: His name is Gerard Latulippe, the same man who in 2007 bashed Muslim immigrants publicly.

Latulippe made the comments at a public commission struck by the Quebec government in 2007 where he said the concentration of immigrants in Montreal, as well as the “geographic concentration of more and more immigrants from Muslim countries” undermined “the proper functioning of Quebec society" and that these Muslims posed an “unnecessary risk of fostering domestic terrorism.”

And this is the man who is supposed to promote human rights and democracy around the world and in Canada?

Gerard Latulippe is also a former advisor to Stockwell Day (the current Minister of Defense and former Christian preacher) and once ran as a candidate for the Canadian Alliance/Reform Party.

Muslim rights groups are pleading the government pick someone more suitable.

Opposition parties have also condemned the nomination, saying the government needs someone less partisan and ideological.
"Its a bit like putting George W. Bush in charge of a peace organization. The man is totally unsuitable for the job."
Human rights groups are urging Canadians to contact Foreign Affairs Minister Lawrence Cannon ( and urge him to change his mind.
