After a testy exchange, MPs on the Commons justice committee voted 6-0 today in favour of the unusual move to purge Hansard, the official parliamentary record. Three Conservative members abstained from the vote. One Conservative MP, Michael Barrett, called the Liberal-led manoeuvre a "stunt.

A 49-year-old Quebec man has been sentenced to 30 days behind bars for inciting hatred through videos he posted online.

After finding him guilty on May 22, Quebec court Judge Gilles Garneau handed down the sentence Tuesday, allowing Pierre Dion to serve his sentence one day a week starting June 21.

Provincial police arrested Dion at his home in Terrebonne, north of Montreal, on Jan. 31.

Dion posted his first video on YouTube on Jan. 27 and another on Jan. 29 — the second anniversary of Alexandre Bissonnette's attack on the Islamic Cultural Centre of Quebec City that left six men dead and injured several others.

Scheer strips Tory MP of committee role after confrontation with Muslim witness

Scheer strips Tory MP of committee role after confrontation with Muslim witness Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer has stripped MP Michael Cooper of his spot on the House of Commons justice committee as punishment for Cooper's angry confrontation with a Muslim witness last week in hearings dedicated to online hate. Earlier this week, Cooper told Fasial Khan Suri he should be "ashamed" after he drew a link between "conservative commentators" and the online history of mosque shooter Alexandre Bissonnette. Cooper also quoted from the manifesto of the man accused of the mass killings in Christchurch, New Zealand in an attempt to discredit Suri's testimony.

Dion praised Bissonnette and said he wanted Quebecers to "wake up."

Dion had also called the immigration of Muslims an "invasion" and denounced social media for what he called censorship.

Garneau ruled that Dion's videos targeted Muslims, ruling his comments were "full of prejudices," particularly when he called on Canadians to "kick Muslims out of the country."

The judge described Dion's crime as "heinous" for adding further punishment to the Muslim community, already affected by the shooting.

In addition, the judge said he did not believe the excuses made by Dion, who mistakenly believed that his freedom of expression was limitless.

The judge said there is no doubt that Dion's comments incited hatred.

Canada's hate speech laws make it a criminal offence to advocate genocide, publicly incite hatred and willfully promote hatred against an "identifiable group."

This heavenly building served as both church and mosque.
The Hagia Sophia rose in its present form around A.D. 537. After centuries as a Christian church, this masterpiece of Byzantine architecture was claimed by a conquering sultan, Mehmed II, as his imperial mosque in 1453. He ordered acres of its intricate mosaics simply plastered over to cover the prohibited figurative imagery. The mosque years also show themselves in the bold flowing lines of Arabic calligraphy on hanging roundels near the second level and in the beautiful marble mihrab, indicating the direction of Mecca.
