The Prentice Institute's invited speaker, Doug Saunders, has a new book,
The Myth of the Muslim Tide, reviewed in The Globe and Mail. Saunders is speaking Thursday 15 November 2012.
On setting himself to the work of a book about Muslim immigration to Europe and North America, Doug Saunders, until recently The Globe and Mail’s European bureau chief, might have been forgiven had he succumbed to the inclination to go just the tiniest bit gonzo.
Where there were once pubs in London’s Holloway Road neighbourhood, where Saunders lived, by the 1990s there were shady money-exchange outfits with signs in Arab lettering. His old neighbours seemed to be vanishing from the scene, and in their place were East Africans, Turks, Arabs and South Asians, all with flocks of children. Then came on Sept. 11, 2001.
