On August 6th, a car belonging to Mohamed Labidi, the head of the Quebec City mosque where six men were shot to death in January, was set on fire. A few days later feces was thrown at the door of the same mosque, the Quebec Islamic Cultural Centre, where Mr. Labidi serves as President. You can read the story from the CBC here. However, on August 4th there was good news in Quebec City. After a long fight and one lost referendum, the Quebec Islamic Culture Centre will be building a Muslim Cemetary in Quebec City. Here is how to donate to support these and other projects of the centre.
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
