CJPME publishes two lengthy letters in the Hill Times and Toronto Sun

On May 16, 2024, CJPME volunteer Walter Thomas Beckett was published in the Toronto Sun, Ottawa Sun, and Winnipeg Sun. His letter was edited in letters to the editor sections, but also published in full as an op-ed. Beckett argued against an article by Lorrie Goldstein, which claimed that Hamas practices “Taqiyya.” Goldstein’s article totally misunderstands the Islamic concept and relied on problematic sourcing.

On May 15, 2024, CJPME’s Jason Toney was published in the Hill Times pushing back against false claims made in an op-ed by Andrew Caddell, a public official in Quebec and former staffer at the Department of Global Affairs. Caddell baselessly claimed that Russia and Iran are funding protesters.
