I was kindly sent a report by someone who was at one of these protests, but I am on the road now and cannot get to it — if anyone was at any of them, please let us know what happened. From FoxNews, with thanks to Jesse:
TORONTO “” A proposal in one Canadian province to allow Muslim residents to use Islamic law for settling family disputes is drawing protests.
Organizers say the peaceful protests in Canada and at some of its diplomatic sites in Europe reflect growing concern over Ontario’s stance on Sharia law.
The provincial government is considering the use of sharia in settling Muslim family disputes such as divorce. Opponents see it as a threat to women’s rights and want to maintain a clear separation of church and state.
