Maclean’s magazine, in 2013, headlined a story “Canadian anti-Muslim sentiment is rising, disturbing new poll reveals.”
Today in hour 1 I’ll be joined by Mubin Shaikh, co-author of Undercover Jihadi and frequent contributor to network television such as CNN, who lived in Syria for two years studying Islam after in his late teens being more sympathetic to the jihadi perspective. Mubin Shaikh was subsequently engaged by CSIS and the RCMP as an undercover operative with the so-called Toronto 18 terror group.
We’ll ask callers to respond to the question “How do you view the relationship between Muslim and non-Muslim Canadians”? I hope we’ll hear from Muslim and non-Muslims. The idea here is to create a dialogue and hopefully a better understanding of each other.
We’ll also speak with international media post-Paris terror attack. Eric Randolph from Agence France Presse joins me from Paris and from Washington, D.C., a
Abderrahim Foukara, Washington Bureau Chief of Al Jazeera.
You’ll find out about the Boots 4 Pups Amazing Race for 2016, as the Citadel Canine Society has organized a great event which will result in service dogs being available to military veteran and first responders. The trophy will be named in honour of Corporal Nathan Cirillo. This is only the third undertaking the Cirillo family has agreed to allow Cpl Cirillo’s name to be used.
BrianARcher, founder of Citadel Canine, Carla de Konig, event director and Honourary Colonel Ron Foxcroft of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Regiment will be with me. Cpl Cirillo was a member of the Argylls.
And…just to change pace, if you’re a lifelong Rolling Stones fan, you’ll want to join us as rock music writer Jim Beviglia ranks the Best 100 Rolling Stones songs. You may disagree with Jim’s decisions and we’ll take calls. Jim’s book is Counting Down the Rolling Stones: Their 100 Finest Songs.”
