MONTREAL, May 11, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - The Corona Theatre announced today that it cancelled Dieudonné M'bala M'bala's scheduled performances in Montreal.
In response to this development, the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs' Vice-President (Québec) Luciano G. Del Negro released the following statement:
"We are satisfied that with this development, Dieudonné and like-minded individuals will receive the message that in Quebec, hateful agitation is not deserving of an honourable platform. While we support freedom of expression, we have a responsibility to relegate anti-Jewish rantings and all expressions of hatred and racism to the margins of society".
