Elghawaby was one of the founding members of Canada’s far-left Anti-Hate Network. A Canadian judge described Elghawaby as having been associated with violent extremist Antifa and supporting them.
Judge said that “CAHN did in fact assist Antifa and that the movement has been violent,” during a defamation suit brought by CAHN against Canadian journalist Jonathan Kay after Kay noted the group’s affiliation with the violent far-left extremists. In addition, the judge dismissed the case, saying it had no merit.
CAHN has also been funded by the Trudeau government directly to the sum of $268,400 and created an educational handbook last year that claimed the Canadian national flag flown during World War II, known as the Red Ensign was a “hate-promoting symbol.”
“I can’t help, on this anniversary, to reflect on Muslim Canadians,”Trudeau stated that Trudeau added the following on 9/11 Anniversary. “we all need to stand together”Against racism and Islamophobia
But he didn’t call for any stand against radical Islam and jihad. https://t.co/rABifRhflT

“The flag of Canada until 1965. Its usage denotes a desire to return to Canada’s demographics before 1967, when it was predominately white,”According to the group, they added “its usage in modern times is an indicator of hate-promoting beliefs.”
Elghawaby has herself been the topic of controversy in Quebec’s French-speaking Province. Elghawaby wrote the article along with Bernie Farber (chair CAHN) in 2019. “Unfortunately, the majority of Quebecers appear to be swayed not by the rule of law, but by anti-Muslim sentiment.”
This article was written in response to Bill 21, a Quebec secularism law that restricted the wearing of religious clothes for all public sector employees of any religion.
According to the newspaper, Elghawaby apologized later for her comments. La Presse, saying, “I want to be very clear. I do not believe that the vast majority of Quebecers are Islamophobic,”And she stated that the words of her were not understood.

The newspaper also noted several other controversial comments Elghawaby has made on social media, including a 2021 Tweet in which she stated “I’m going to vomit”In response to an article written by a Toronto philosophy professor, the author claimed that French Canadians have been the greatest victims of British colonialism.
The comment led Quebec historian Frédéric Bastien to comment, “Why does it make her want to vomit when someone reminds us that French Canadians were victims of discrimination and injustice? We think of the hanging of Louis Riel, the deportation of the Acadians, the closure of French schools in Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan…”
Since the announcement, Quebec’s ruling conservative party, the Coalition avenir Québec (CAQ), have also taken notice of the new appointment.
“I find it a questionable choice to have this person who seems to be motivated by an anti-Quebec feeling to have a position in the federal government. I think she needs to withdraw her remarks, apologize for what she said,” Quebec minister for Secularism and Canadian Relations, Jean-François Roberge said.
