Barrie hate crime free in 2015: Statistics Canada

A man power-washes a brick wall

Reports of crimes targeting the Muslim community have recently increased.

"The Thunder Bay Police have worked directly with stats Canada to train statisticians to accurately stat incidents as there is no uniform definition of hate Crime in Canada", Tilbury said in a news release.

Since the deadly attack on the Quebec City mosque in January, dozens of hate incidents targeting Muslim communities have been reported across Canada, including vandalism of homes and mosques, and anti-Muslim rallies held in major cities.

Statistics Canada says eight of 10 provinces reported an increase in the number of police-reported hate crimes from 2014 to 2015. The increase in female victims of religious hate crimes is attributed to an increase in female victims for Jewish and Muslim hate crimes from 2014 to 2015, says the report.

But data for metropolitan areas in Alberta shows that while Edmonton saw a jump in hate crime numbers, from 36 in 2014 to 81 in 2015, the Calgary region saw a decrease in the same time period, from 76 incidents in 2014 to 68 in 2015.

In its report, Statistics Canada also found that women were particularly vulnerable to religious-based hate incidents. It projects the number of non-Christians could nearly double by 2036.

He also said in the statement that the Jewish community stood with other targeted groups in condemning hatred in all its forms.

The report looked at a variety of hate-crime statistics-from crime motivations and violations to the demographics of victims and the accused. But we also say that if a vehicle was vandalized, for instance, it's not necessarily a hate crime.

- In Ontario, which historically records close to half the total number of hate crimes in Canada, the number of police-reported incidents dropped by five per cent in 2015.

Canadians are in denial about hate crimes, added Chelby Daigle, an author who has documented anti-black racism in Ottawa.

Statistics Canada said the increase in hate crimes in Alberta was primarily driven by a higher number of police-reported crimes motivated by hatred against the Muslim population, Arab or West Asian populations, black populations and the Jewish population. To put that in perspective, there were almost two million criminal incidents reported to police in the same year. The number of hate crimes in Montréal was attributable to 33 more reported incidents targeting a religion.

Massa said the organization keeps its own tally of hate incidents against Muslims.

Provincial governments, through their Attorney Generals, to provide adequate support for investigating and prosecuting hate crimes. Jews were next with 178 incidents reported and sexual orientation hate crimes stood at 141.

This was not reported to police. Violent offences included such things as assault, uttering threats, and criminal harassment. "They don't want to bring what's happened to them to the light of day and the scrutiny of a police investigation, perhaps the courts".
