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.

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.

Danny Green excelling again on the NBA Finals stage

Danny Green excelling again on the NBA Finals stage OAKLAND, Calif. — Toronto's Danny Green couldn't make a shot for about two weeks going into these NBA Finals. Seems like forever ago now. The finals are a happy stage for Green, who has been in the title-deciding series three times now and has put up big numbers in each of those trips. The trend has continued in this series against Golden State, and Green's six 3-pointers were a huge factor in the Raptors' Game 3 win that put them up 2-1 in the series. Game 4 is on Friday, and Green can expect to see a lot more defensive attention from the Warriors.

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."
