In a recent communiqué published on its website, the Ottawa Police Service endorsed an activity organized by the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC).
On its own website, MAC acknowledges its adherence to the ideology promoted by the Muslim Brotherhood and its founder Hassan al-Banna:
MAC’s (…) modern roots can be traced to the Islamic revival of the early twentieth century, culminating in the movement of the Muslim Brotherhood. (…) MAC adopts and strives to implement Islam, as embodied in the Qur’an, and the teachings of the Prophet (peace be upon him) and as understood in its contemporary context by the late Imam, Hassan Albanna, the founder of the Muslim Brotherhood. MAC regards this ideology as the best representation of Islam as delivered by Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
