Canada OKs Cutting Funding for Suspected Arab Group


A Canadian judge has cleared the cutting of funding for the Canadian Arab Federation due to suspicions that the group sympathized with terrorists. The CAF objected to the removal of government funding under immigration minister Jason Kenney in 2009. Kenny told The Star news in Canada on Tuesday, “groups who express apparently hateful views or who defend terrorist organizations should not receive taxpayer funding, period."
