Hate crimes against Muslims have increased 60 percent, according to the latest figures released Tuesday by Statistics Canada.

This is "largely due to an increase in incidents targeting certain religious and ethno-cultural groups, specifically the Muslim population and Arabs or West Asians", Statistics Canada stated in its report.

The number of attacks spurred by hate was 1,362 and that was 67 more than the previous year.

There were five hate crimes reported in Brantford in 2015, up from three in 2014.

The NCCM was joined in a press conference on Parliament Hill by representatives from Black, Indigenous, Muslim, and Jewish communities in responding to Statistics Canada's 2015 police-reported hate crimes report.

Gene Green accuses Trump of 'sabotage' in undermining Obamacare
Thousands of Ohioans across 18 counties just found out they could also be left with absolutely zero choices under Obamacare. In 2013, individuals purchasing health plans on the Health Insurance Exchange paid an average of $232 in monthly premiums.

"Of those 25, 16 were against race and ethnicity and those account for the increase between 2014 and 2015", said Rebecca Kong, manager of policing service programs at Statistics Canada, who noted that because the numbers are small, it's hard to break them down further to detail the race or ethnicity involved. In the CMA of Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge, counts were primarily driven by more incidents targeting different races or ethnicities (+12) and religions (+10).

"There's elements of embarrassment, there's people who are subjected or victimized by these crimes and they just don't want to have any more involvement", he said.

From 2014 to 2015, police-reported crime motivated by hatred against the Muslim population increased in all provinces except Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, and Saskatchewan and Manitoba, where the totals remained virtually the same.

These findings are included in the new Juristat article "Police-reported hate crime in Canada, 2015" released on Tuesday.

Females were more likely to be victims in incidents targeting a religion, and the presence of female victims in violent crimes motivated by hatred of a religion increased in 2015.

Otto Warmbier Was Just Freed From North Korea for a Tragic Reason
Three weeks later, North Korea announced it was holding Warmbier for a "hostile act" against the state. The official said the last instruction the president gave Tillerson was "take care of Otto".

Two major factor explain the increase-an uptick in religiously-based and race-based hate crimes.

Edmonton Mayor Don Iveson called the rise in hate crimes in 2015 "double-edged". About 11 per cent targeted sexual orientation.

"It is up to all levels of governments to ensure that perpetrators of hate crimes in Canada are held to account and that victims and communities are empowered to confront hatred regardless of who it targets or its motivation", Elgazzar said.

"Year after year, as a member of the black community, we're the highest targeted group and yet you're not seeing much of a narrative about blacks being a targeted group for hate crimes", Daigle said.

Collins said local police have been seeing an increase in offences such as graffiti and uttering threats.
