Group that gave pro-caliphate speech at Mohawk not welcome to return

January 8, 2016

After a speaker at an event held at Mohawk College reportedly endorsed the building of an Islamic caliphate, the college has said that the sponsoring group will not be welcomed back. When the event was booked at the college, it was reportedly described only as a refugee crisis lecture. Further, the booking was made under an individual’s name, not under the name of the group, which has experienced controversy in the past. Jay Robb, spokesperson for Mohawk, described the variety of initiatives the college is undertaking to support refugees. “Going forward, we will be doing our homework,” said Robb. “Will we be booking this group again? No. Not at all.” Toronto Sun
