    I certainly don’t want to stir up any painful Israel-Palestine business again. But Canada’s Muslim population is about 1,054,000, more than twice our Jewish population of about 400,000. So does Canada have a Muslim Heritage Month? Or even a Christian Heritage Month (let alone Hindu, Sikh or Buddhist)? If not, will you be proposing and supporting those, Elizabeth?

      Excellent question. But will Ms. May respond?
      Re your first sentence, was there anyone in particular you were thinking of who might not want you to “stir up any painful Israel-Palestine business again”? Is there someone who needs to be protected?

      • Will-o’-the-West

        I hope Ms. May does respond; mixing religion with politics can stir up strong brew. We Greens have stumbled over Middle East rubble before — Paul Estrin a few years ago, and the compromise over the boycott movement last year. But no, I had no one in mind as I wrote that. What we need to protect is peace.
