A Toronto city councillor sees nothing wrong with a policy that allows the exclusion of non-Muslims from a subsidized building in the city. As Sean O’Shea reports, the policy — approved by city council — has elicited outrage.
On Jan. 1, the city of Toronto entered a five-year agreement with Ahmadiyya. City council agreed to establish a mandate to restrict tenancy to “members of the Muslim Jama’at.”
Austin Lewis, 21, is among those who received letters informing him that if he is not a member of the designated group, and is not Muslim, he can’t remain on the list.
