A veteran's fight against islamaphobia

Quebec AM

The recent attack on a mosque in New Zealand led to more questions around the world about the prevalence of Islamophobia. For one Canadian veteran of the war in Afghanistan, the issue of Islamophobia is especially important. Retired Corporal Franck Dupéré served twice in Afghanistan before a Taliban suicide bombing paralysed half his body. But he feels peaceful toward Islam, as he does with other religions. And he wants to pass those feelings on to his two children. That's why he went on a trip to North Africa in August. He joins Quebec AM guest host Ainslie MacLellan from Montreal to tell his story.
