Government Of Saskatchewan Proclaims Day Of Action Against Hate And Intolerance

Released on January 29, 2020

January 29, 2020 has been proclaimed Day of Action Against Hate and Intolerance in Saskatchewan.

This proclamation recognizes that there’s no place for racism in Saskatchewan.

The date marks the tremendous loss that took place on January 29, 2017 when six Canadian Muslim men lost their lives and many were gravely injured in a shooting at a mosque in Quebec City.

“Violence of any kind is unacceptable in our country,” Justice Minister and Attorney General Don Morgan said. “We must all stand together against all forms of hatred and intolerance, and work together to promote inclusion and acceptance.”

The proclamation was requested by Regina and Saskatoon based chapters of the Islamic Association of Saskatchewan and is supported by additional faith-based groups. 

“January 29 will forever be marked by the odious shooting at a Quebec City Mosque,” the Islamic Association of Saskatchewan said.  “By proclaiming this day as a provincial Day of Action Against Hate and Intolerance, the Government of Saskatchewan has taken a principled stand in solidarity with those who suffer and against those who would seek to divide our nation with hate and intolerance and has reaffirmed our province's motto: ‘Multis e gentibus vires, from many peoples, strength’.”

“I am proud to support the Day of Action Against Hate and Intolerance on behalf of the Saskatoon Jewish community,” Rabbi Claudio Jodorkovsky said.  “The religious institutions in Saskatoon are like a family, we are all connected.  Our community will continue to stand shoulder to shoulder with all faiths and cultures to challenge intolerance.”

“Our spiritual commitment and energy must compel us all to build trust, respect, and relationship in a world that can fall too easy to fearful and hateful responses of disrespect and violence,” Bishop Mark Hagemoen said. “Let us choose wisely not only the higher path, but the lasting one.” 
 
“The members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Saskatoon are very grateful to the Government of Saskatchewan for recognition and reassurance that hate has no place in our society,” Mubarik Syed with the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at said.  “Islam is a religion of peace, love, and harmony.  This is why the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama'at believes and practices the motto 'Love for all, hatred for none'.”
