(An Ottawa mosque lost its charity status in 2018 because it invited speakers in who demanded the deaths of gay people and all the usual statements of Islam about the unbeliever and non-conformist to Islamic norms. They lost that status due to ‘hate speech’ claims. Much better if there was no such thing as hate speech and religious institution’s funding rested on not using their pulpit for political purposes. However Canada uses the ludicrous and ultimately Marxist, ‘Hate Speech’ tactic and in this instance it served the interests of Democracy. However now, the mosque is claiming the problem is Islamophobia and they want their charitable status restored.)
The Canadian Council of Imams is calling on the federal government to investigate their allegations of Islamophobia within the Canada Revenue Agency for making what they call “false” and “misleading” claims against two Muslim leaders.
The allegations come after the CRA stripped the charity status of the Ottawa Islamic Centre and Assalam Mosque in 2018 following audits that raised concerns about past guest speakers and “activities that promote hate and intolerance.”
The CCI said that the CRA published “defamatory” statements against two of its members, Imam Abdullah Hakim Quick and Imam Said Rageah, which “falsely” connected them to “hate, intolerance, and terrorism.”
What did CAIR Canada, deceptively renamed NCCM to avoid the CAIR label, have to say about the loss of status?
This is from 2018:
And who are these speakers that prompted the government to remove status from these mosques, and what did they say?

It should be interesting to see if the Trudeau Government elects to give them back their charitable status with the usual Neo-Marxist accusations of “Islamophobia” and nothing else.
