Proliferating Muslim Brotherhood organizations, Gulf money, record-breaking immigration, and a debilitating confusion of identity and values, have led to a disturbing expansion of radical-Islam’s presence and influence in Canadian society, government and politics.

Relying on sensitive sources, Montreal-based Point de BASCULE website Editor Marc Lebuis  documents this largely-undisclosed reality in this transcript of remarks before the 2009 Civitas National Conference.

Lebuis offers solutions that recognize the difficult circumstances in which Canadians now find themselves.
