Canada’s prime minister concerned about the rise in anti-Semitism and Islamophobia

# Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau says the current rise in anti-Semitism and Islamophobia in the country is abhorrent, alarming, and unacceptable. Recently, shots were fired at two Jewish schools in Montreal and clashes broke out between pro-Israeli and pro-Palestinian students at a university in the city. Montreal police say since the Hamas attack on Israel last month, which killed one-thousand-400 people, they have recorded 73 reported hate crimes and hate incidents against the Jewish community and 17 against the Arab-Muslim community. Trudeau says hate has no place in Canada.
