The second of yearly studies on anti-Islamic discourse in the Canadian media, this case study is preceded by a report on the success on the first edition as well as dictionary of anti-Islamic terms commonly used in newspaper reports.

The study itself presents a reading of actual newspaper articles, illustrating both anti-Islamic sentiment in the media as well as the disproportionate linkage of Islam and Islamic organizations with terrorism and misogyny as opposed to other religious and political groups.

The study ends with a series of recommendations for the elimination of anti-Islamic sentiment, writing, and images from Canadian media culture.
