WINNIPEG—Former U.S. secretary of state Hillary Clinton is calling on Canada to continue fighting the “ideology of hate” and propaganda that is fuelling terrorism.
Clinton told about 2,000 people at a lunch hosted by the Winnipeg Chamber of Commerce that the international community has to target extremist propaganda that is drawing radicals to the cause.
She said everyone has a stake in the defeat of terrorism in, what she called, a “contest of ideas and values.”
Clinton said extremism is hurting the vast majority of Muslims who are a “peaceful and tolerant” people.
The former senator and first lady is also scheduled to speak in Saskatoon this evening.
Her speech comes the day after President Barack Obama’s state of the union address.
There is wide speculation Clinton will take another run at the Democratic presidential nomination.
She ran unsuccessfully against Obama in 2008 and was appointed secretary of state during his first term as president.
