Canada: Anti-immigrant groups demand apology from Trudeau over false hijab story

Asian-Canadian protesters joined forces with several far-right and anti-immigrant groups at Parliament Hill in Ottawa on Sunday, to demand an apology from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The unlikely bedfellows have bonded over allegations made by an 11-year old girl from Toronto that a man of Asian descent had tried to cut her hijab with scissors. Trudeau condemned the incident on... Еще Twitter, later comparing it to a hate crime. However, a police investigation concluded that the attack never happened. Some in the Asian-Canadian community said they feel victimised by the prime minister's comments and have demanded an apology. Anti-fascists held a counter-demonstration nearby, after it emerged that the protest would be supported by far-right groups like Quebec's La Meute, known as 'Wolf Pack' in English, and the Northern Guard.
