Multi-Culture? Or Canadian Culture?

Robert Spencer and Christine Douglass-Williams will be speaking in Grande Prairie, Alberta on October 29.

For tickets, please click this link, and then click on “Events”.

This is a rare opportunity. If you’re in the vicinity of Grand Prairie on October 29, I recommend that you head for the Stonebridge Hotel so you can hear them.

Robert Spencer’s presentations on Islam are the best in the business, bar none. He is particularly informative when answering questions from the audience, so ask him a question in the Q&A period if you want to learn more.

I’ve never heard Ms. Douglass-Williams speak, but if she’s teaming up with Mr. Spencer, she’s bound to be good.

  1. That’s a curious location to hold a discussion in. Only about 60,000, and 5 hours from the closest major city. Are they stopping elsewhere in Alberta or Canada?

  2. They couldn’t hold it in Calgary. It’s a much larger city but facing a civic election. Current mayor Nenshi would probably find some way to shut it down. I believe it has the fastest growing Muslim population in Canada.Rural and small-town Alberta is a little more conservative. Statistics Canada will be releasing its latest info on demographics across Canada about population, ethnicity, religion, etc. later this month. Then we’ll know who’s who, where, and by how much. I read somewhere that the Alberta school system next year will start teaching Arabic.

      • Edmonton has had Arabic as a second language due to its significant Lebanese population for at least a decade (alongside French, German, Ukrainian, Punjabi, Mandarin, and Hebrew). The change is that Alberta Education is endorsing the curriculum for use across the province.

        • The US fouled up by not having one official language.

          Canada fouled up by having two official languages.

          • The US had one language by custom until the militant Californians decided we shouldn’t. And with the p.c. mindset of the current crop of academic leaders, places like New Hampshire are going broke trying to accomodate sixty different languages in their schools. With the current governor, things won’t change, either.

            It is as if no one in the West ever read the story of the Tower of Babel and absorbed the lessons therein.

  4. Off topic sort of…

    Did you know the Vikings were muslim?


    The idea would be funny if it were not for the current setting. Apart from the fact that the silk was imported already woven, if you actually read up on Viking custom at the time… I can’t write it here as it is very explicit….well….. academia turns political ( again)… have to have a term for that…. politicademia?

    • Straight out of 1984.

      He who controls the present controls the past.

      He who controls the past controls the future.

  5. Be very careful attending this event as it may be set-up to collect names and addresses of participants who harbour anti-Muslim sentiment by the government of JT.
