As people around the globe celebrate the New Year, for me 2019 is beginning just the way 2018 did — with a threat against me.
Leading up to 2018, the threats against me were quite blatant, leading last year to the arrest of two would-be assassins in India.
Even in Toronto, a Muslim cab driver pointed his fist at me in pistol fashion saying, “I have a special gun for you,” as he sped away.
Yet towards the end of 2018, a much more subtler death threat was addressed to me, this time by the head of Canada’s newest aspiring political party, the Islamic Party of Ontario.
In case you have not heard of the Islamic Party of Ontario, its name was officially reserved under Elections Ontario rules in October 2018, with more steps required before it becomes a formal party.
