"Across Canada, the Muslim population is growing at a rate exceeding other religions, according to Statistics Canada. It is even growing faster than the number of Canadians who identify themselves as having no religion ...

"The Muslim population exceeded the one-million mark in 2011, according to the survey, almost doubling its population for the second-consecutive decade ..."

Don't come to the conclusion that all Canadians started standing in line to embrace Islam. The recent spurt is due to the dumping of unwanted Muslims from Pakistan and Bangladesh in droves. Canadian government should give priority to peaceful but much persecuted Coptic Christians of Egypt, Christians of Pakistan, who are often targeted for Islamic blasphemy laws, and the 150 Christian girls salvaged from Bangladesh Islamic Madrasas.

Canadian Muslims: Not Canada's Fastest Growing Community

Statistics Canada just made it official: Islam is the fastest growing religion in the country. Although this is a "fact," the reality is quite different. Yes, we are the fastest growing non-Christian religious population, but we are not the fastest growing community.

Through serving this community -- my community -- for more than thirty years, I came to believe that we were perhaps a community-under-construction. But then an earthquake called 9/11 virtually destroyed what little we had.

Who dumped the unwanted Muslims from Pakistan and Bangladesh?

Otherwise (Copts, Christians), I agree.

Hard-working, law-abiding (most of them are) Muslims are more than welcome in Canada.

You, on the other hand, are a bunch of racists who should better migrate to make Canada a better place.

Law abiding? Which laws do they abide? Their Sharia laws, of course. Not our laws. After all, the Criminal Code is not their "holy book", remember?

Hard working...?on the other way! You tell that about the really hard working Chinese, Tamil Srilankans, East Europeans but not the Muslims.The famous 2006 Ontario terrorism case refers to the Muslim plotting of a series of attacks against targets in Southern Ontario, Canada, and the June 2, 2006, counter-terrorism raids in and around the Greater Toronto Area that resulted in the arrest of 18 Muslims (the "Toronto 18") found to be members of Islamic terrorist cells in Canada.

They were accused of planning to detonate truck bombs, to open fire in a crowded area, and to storm the Canadian Broadcasting Centre, the Canadian Parliament building, the Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) headquarters, and the parliamentary Peace Tower to take hostages and to behead the Prime Minister Stephen Harper and other leaders.

Recently(23 April 2013)Two Muslim men were arrested in Toronto on Tuesday charged with plotting a terrorist attack against a Canadian passenger train with support from Islamic terror elements" in Iran, according to Canadian police.

Chiheb Esseghaier, 30, and Raed Jaser, 35,Both belonging to a Muslim terror group, who live in Montreal and Toronto, were planning to derail a Via Rail passenger train in Toronto but posed no immediate threat, according to the Royal Canadian Mounted police (RCMP).

So many racist people here. Not much of difference between terrorist an you guys.
Most muslims are peaceful and loving just like Christians and jews and hindus and sikhs. There are always bad apples like osama and the christian guy in Norway or the american christian who attacked sikh temple. They all are terrorist just not in the news because news only talk about muslim terrorist. So wake up and look around. Most people around you are nicest people in the world.

I have half a feeling the victims of those bad apples couldn't care less what their murderers shouted while murdering them.
Or for what reason they were murdered.

muslims founded canada doncha know. canada belongs to islam. is the making of the next civil war. your roman church is to blame for importing islam. same in usa then president jfk and ted changed immigration with the act of 1965 that has changed the country into the mess we see today. most today flood in due to the wars, as intended. also ran by the roman church for this very reason.
there's enuff islam to go around; they flood all western nations and russia too as the orthodox have always been enemy of the vatican. today russia is 20% islam. australia will fall quick with their small population of just 20 million. then europe. i believe usa will be last, were it possible.
