But as Loomer approached the entrance to the ICNA event on Sunday, she was stopped by a man in a dapper green jacket who told her the event “is free only for the Muslim community.”

With Toronto mayoral candidate Faith Goldy by her side, Loomer persisted: “So Christians and Jews are not welcome to this event? Only Muslims allowed?” she asked. Another man standing further back intervened and confirmed to Loomer that the event was “only for Muslims.”
   Before the exasperated Loomer could say another word, the man in the green jacket reached towards the camera and tried to stop the recording, insisting “it is against the law.”
    Goldy, who had been silent so far, intervened to remind the ICNA official: “It is against the law to discriminate on religious grounds, sir. That’s against the law.”
