Out On The Shelf stands opposed to all forms of discrimination and rejects the rising culture of Islamophobia that currently exists both domestically and worldwide. We furthermore reject and denounce the unsettling, unwarranted and prejudicial actions of the United States government in relation to its Muslim Ban and stand in solidarity with the Muslim community of Guelph in this difficult time. We must all come together to resist all infringements of human rights and dignity and reaffirm our shared commitment to diversity.
We also strongly condemn the horrific, barbaric and cowardly act of terrorism that claimed the lives of 6 innocent worshipers and wounded 19 in Quebec City. We offer our condolences and our sympathies to the families of the victims and the entire Muslim community as a whole.
- Edward Reimer, Secretary and Vice-Chair
