Keep Christine Williams on Canadian Race Relations Foundation Board & Protect Free Speech

This petition had 1,330 supporters


Christine D-Williams is a journalist, author, and television host, long-renowned as a frontline defender of human rights and democratic values. For these reasons, she was appointed by the government to the Board of Directors of the federally created Canadian Race Relations Foundation (“CRRF”) in 2012.

Despite Christine’s proven record of positive and effective advocacy, today she is being criticized and threatened with removal from the CRRF Board because of her writing and advocacy against radical militant Islamism, arguably the worst human rights abusers of our time. Groups that seek to silence criticism of the jihadist-Islamist agenda are now lobbying the Department of Canadian Heritage and the Minister of Canadian Heritage, The Honourable Mélanie Joly, to have Christine removed from the CRRF Board, where she has diligently served for many years.

Christine’s recent book, “The Challenge of Modernizing Islam: Reformers Speak Out and the Obstacles They Face”, tackles the very real challenges of radical Islam, including honour killings, violent persecution, execution for apostasy and homosexuality, black slavery and supremacist views that shut down free speech. In her book, she carefully differentiates between radical Islamists and the overwhelming majority of human rights-respecting Muslims who thrive and live peaceably in Western nations.

In Christine’s own words: "Genuine Muslim bigotry should be condemned. Islamic supremacy needs to be confronted and condemned." The victims of this radical ideology are Muslims as well as non-Muslims.

Yet, the threatened removal of Christine from the CRRF Board is the latest example of people being muzzled by so-called ‘political correctness’. All Canadians - and Muslim Canadians in particular - must not be afraid of questioning radical Islam and standing up to its enforced social stigmatization, lawfare and physical violence, out of fear of being needlessly and improperly labeled “racist”, as Christine is being accused today. Free speech and one rule of law for all Canadians are at risk if Minister Joly concedes to demands to remove Christine from the CRRF Board.

We ask you to sign this petition to protest this unjust and sinister attempt to remove Christine from the CRRF Board, and call upon Minister Joly to uphold Christine’s appointment to the CRRF Board and therefore defend the freedom of speech.
