Responding to Hate

In the aftermath of a confrontation outside the Al-Rashid mosque in January 2019, the OPV surveyed members of the community to determine both their reactions to the event, and how they think various stakeholders, including the City of Edmonton, Edmonton Police Service and the community can respond to such events in the future.

"The events of January 25, 2019 left many Edmontonians shocked and fearful. [...] The immediate response among politicians, community members, the Edmonton Police Service and City of Edmonton was expressions or support and solidarity. What this survey shows is that such expressions must lead to something greater – pro-active steps among both impacted communities and key stakeholders like the municipality and police."
