Talk organized in Toronto about Canada in the wake of 9/11

The Toronto Star – December 4, 2011
Reading the Aftermath of 9/11: the Sociopolitical and Moral Implications was organized by the Intercultural Dialogue Institute, a Turkish Canadian peace group. Toronto’s police chief zeroed in on a single legacy of the 2001 terrorist attack on America that shocked — and changed — the world. The strongest partnership the police developed, he said, was with the Muslim community. It was instrumental in the arrest of the Toronto 18 — all radicalized young Islamic men — five years later.
The region’s imams also worked together. They agreed on a three-part plan. They would tackle Western misconceptions about Islam. They would urge Muslims to speak out against practices that had nothing to do with their faith. And they would seek help from the wider community.
