No! I don't want to go to J-School...

it will make me stupid.

In 2007, The Canadian Federation of Students conducted a task force on the needs of Muslim students in Ontario and found that discrimination against Muslims in university contexts is systemic. The Ontario Human Rights Commission contends that since the attacks of September, 2001 Islamophobic attitudes are becoming more prevalent in society and Muslims are increasingly the targets of intolerance. A recent poll confirms that negative feelings towards Muslims are on the rise in Canada. Thirty–six percent of respondents across the country expressed anti-Muslim sentiment, compared to 27 percent a year ago.

The CFS? Oooohhh yeah. That CFS.

Can we have a new "phobia"? How about "journophobia"?

I don't fear journalists. I hate them. What's the word for that?

No no, William,

"phobia" means hate now. So it's ok.
