Combatting Antisemitism On A Federal Level: A Fireside Chat With Anthony Housefather, Member Of Parliament For Mount Royal

March 22, 2023

In January 2019,  during a town hall-style meeting in St. Catharines, Ontario, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau blasted the BDS (Boycott Divestment Sanctions) movement as antisemitic, and said it ran contrary to “Canadian values.”

While Canada has been a vocal opponent of antisemitism in general and movements like BDS in particular, having been one of the first countries to adopt the IHRA (International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance) working definition of antisemitism, can more be done?

To help stop the scourge of Jew-hatred, what other efforts and methods can be used in this fight to protect and advocate for Canada’s Jewish population?

In this week’s podcast, we sit down with Member of Parliament Anthony Housefather, who represents the Montreal riding of Mount Royal, one of the country’s most heavily Jewish constituencies.
