Syrian refugees who attended a Muslim welcoming event were pepper-sprayed at a bus stop in Vancouver, British Columbia.By Samantha Crook | January 9, 2016
A group of Syrian refugees was pepper-sprayed outside a Canadian Muslim center late Friday night.
CBC reported mixed opinions on whether or not the attack targeted the group because they were from Syria, a predominantly Islamic country.
The incident is reminiscent of recent anti-Islamic sentiment that's been directed at Muslims after the Paris attacks.
