Community in Toronto planning Muslim Neighborhood

It seems like the 4-year story around The Islamic Shia Ithna Asheri Jamaat (ISIJ) goal to rezone and develop the property around the Jaffari Community Centre mosque at 9000 Bathurst St continues to explode as inside Vaughan City Hall on Tuesday night, hundreds of concerned residents and mosque supporters were forced into overflow rooms as the council chambers were packed wall-to-wall.

Dubbed the “Jaffari Village,” the initial 2014 plan proposed two 17-storey residential towers, a retail space and 61 townhouses in the low-density neighbourhood.

Then, both religious tensions and concerns about density surfaced in community discussions, with more than 3,250 people signing a petition against it at the time.

Now supporters and opponents feel that their voices are not being heard.

In a recent Toronto Star article, one individual stated that they would move if the project started as “Why would I want to be next to a refugee community?.”

It seems like this is a disagreement that will continue to plague the development of the project.

What is your thought on this? Let us know below!

Important Note: The units would not be exclusive to Muslims, but the ISIJ expects the proximity to the mosque will attract primarily residents of the Islamic faith.

Background: Projects like this have been growing in Canada in recent years. A similar project was put on hold in Montreal as within the community “drinking alcohol would only be allowed inside homes and women would not be allowed to walk around “half-naked.”

  • They come here to become Canadians, these developments don't allow them to integrate or embrace our culture and values! They want their own neighbourhoods and impose their beliefs and cultural values, then please leave Canada and move to a Muslim country! We as Canadians don't want our country to become like France, GB or Germany with no go zones and people that have no respect for our laws pans beliefs!

  • Segregating from the rest of Canadian Society should never be allowed. This is only going to create the same mess that the rest of the European countries are now facing. Should new immigrants not be able to integrate with our laws, freedoms and understanding of our general lifestyles with gender rights and freedoms then hell, go to one of the many Muslim countries willing to accept them into their ways. Our politicians must step up to the plate and ensure that our Country keeps our civilized way of life fair for all citizen's and all the people. That all people respect our laws and abide by them. Giving sectors of society special rights and privledges apart from Canadian laws and Canadian lifestyles only divides us further away. Giving different sectors more rights and freedoms to create their own laws in unacceptable and the government that sanctions this is also unacceptable.

  • It just going to be a Canadian no go some they should be sent right to fuck back home this isn't the place for them

  • This is all being happening because of Trudeau. He and Soros have started this whole mess and the only way to stop it is to get rid of the traitor Trudeau. Soros and his Open Society Foundation are the reason Europe is turning into a hellhole he has financed the whole refuge lie there. He doesn't have to spend nearly as much money in Canada to do the same thing unless you count the money he's donated to the Trudeau Foundation because Trudeau is doing it for free. It's all part of UN-led Globalization or Sustainable Development 2030.

  • How is this even being considered in Canada?? These people have zero intentions on integration, not to mention their hate for all infidels. This is ridiculous & outrageous-they can go back to their own way of life in their own countries now

  • This could be the beginning of the Muslim takeover in this country. They put 10,000 of them in the same neighbourhood. They get candidates elected to the gov't, eventually there are enough of them to pass their interests into law and presto. It is already happening to a degree with bill 103 and it won't go away it will only get worse.

  • This is the first step towards Sharia Law.
    Do we really want Canada to become another England and France.
    Stop this insanity before it starts.

  • BAN ISLAM! I am pushing for a complete ban on political Islam in all western nations. Islam is a dangerous theocratic ideology of hatred for non-believers, intolerance of other religions and it is a conquering religion. Once they plant a mosque, that land is declared their land, and then all they do is keep expanding outward until they envelope entire neighborhoods and, as we have seen in England, entire towns. Sex-grooming gangs begin to troll around mixed race neighborhoods, kidnapping young girls, drugging them and forcing them to perfume sex acts. Some girls are as young as 11 yrs old. We just witnessed this in Telford, UK although the BBC and other British media had a smidgen of news on the story. This cannot happen and Islam must be banned. We need new right-wing leaders in power in our country.

  • These people should not be allowed to have their own apartments and community totally closed off from the general public. If they were allowed to come into CANADA THEN THEY NEED TO ABIDE BY OUR RULES AND REGULATIONS AND OUR WAY OF LIFE AND LIVE AS CANADIANS - NOT LIVE LIKE THEY ARE USED TO IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY. IF THEY DON'T LIKE THAT THEN THEY SHOULD ALL GO BACK TO THEIR OWN COUNTRY WHERE THEY CAME FROM. CANADA HAS TRADITIONS THAT WE ALL LIVE BY AND HAVE DONE SO FOR MANY MANY MANY YEARS AND WE DON'T NEED ANY MUSLIMS TO COME HERE AND CHANGE OUR WAY OF LIFE JUST TO SUIT THEM. THIS IS CANADA PEOPLE THIS IS OUR WAY OF LIFE. YOU DON'T LIKE IT THEN DON'T BOTHER TO COME HERE. PACK YOUR SHIT AND GET THE HELL OUT OF CANADA AND GO BACK TO WHERE YOU BELONG IN THE FIRST PLACE.

  • They are infiltrating every country to expand their intolerance and hatred of infidels and slowly eroding our traditions and ideals. Before you know it, sharia law will be instilled.

  • Haha great comments guys, I hope the developer submits these comments in the OMB Tribunal as proof that their development has been stalled 4 years not because of some pseudo-planning issue.. but because of identity politics. Maybe I am just dumb, but how does building an old age home and residential properties imply "taking over Canada"... LOL, that is some of the craziest stuff I have read in a long time.

  • This is Government pandering to a specific religion which should not be allowed.Government should have nothing to do with religion and showing favoritism to a specific one is completely wrong. If this allowed to happen then a religious group starts changing laws on what people in the area are allowed or not allowed to do. Coming here for a supposed better life and changing things to how they are in their Country of origin is not adapting to Canadian way of life. That is called invasion, and our Government, primarily the Federal Liberals are allowing and encouraging it to happen. Look at the Cabinet Ministers who are trying to change our laws, the voter no I D is a big one. Bill C-33 courtesy of Mariam Monsef who lied about origin of birth to become a Citizen and then put in Cabinet. The Ministers in key positions, immigration, etc. Why do they need to change our laws if they came here supposedly for a better life? That speaks of takeover, slowly and steadily, with help from inside the Government.

  • All the comments above are 100% truth except for harper levine, that dude is completely ignorant.
    I am proud of all of you above that commented truth and common sense about this very serious issue and are speaking out about it.
    We MUST not let this happen. They must not be allowed to have segregated neighborhoods.
    Make no mistake, islam is our enemy, it is the enemy and the BIGGEST TREAT to our freedom and of our way of life. Look at Europe. And research history. They have completely taken over every country they have been allowed to enter, over time.
    This is a matter of the future of our nation.
    This must be taken seriously.

  • These individuals Do Not wish to integrate.
    We either assimilate to their values and beliefs, or this will be a no go zone and a sharia law enjorced environment.
    DO NOT let this happen!
    Other such neighbourhoods will soon rise through the country, and then a will have a real problem in our hands.
    We need to stand together on this.
