An open letter to my MLA - Dave Taylor.
Canada Revenue has revoked the charitable status of the World Islamic Call Society, a "charity" directly linked to Mouammar Gaddaffi. The revocation came in light of revelations that the charity was a front used to funnel funds to terrorists.
The World Islamic Call Society is directly related to the al Rashid Mosque and its subsidiaries in Edmonton, the Edmonton Islamic Academy.
This 'Academy' also does business as the Edmonton Islamic School Society - they share the same address - 14525 127 St, Edmonton Ab - T6V 0B3.
Dave, There is clearly a direct link between these organizations. According to their latest filing the Edmonton Islamic School Society received $3,473,000.00 in tax dollars from the citizens of Alberta.
So my 2 questions are these:
1. Are my tax dollars here in Alberta being used to fund terrorism?
2. Is this group related in any way to the push for Arabic language programming in Calgary Public Schools, and will you be at the 'Open House' at Central Memorial High School regarding this issue on May 19 from 5:30 - 7 pm? Your prompt reply would be much appreciated.
"Community is about caring about what happens to others and knowing there are people who care about you. It's about feeling safe when you go out for a walk, and feeling secure in letting your children out to play. Community allows us to leave this world a better place than we found it by combining our efforts through strength in numbers." - Dave Taylor, Maiden Speech in the Alberta Legislature, March 9, 2005
