Quebec City Mayor Régis Labeaume expressed his outrage towards far-right group La Meute for meddling in the referendum to build a Muslim cemetery in Saint-Apollinaire, Quebec.

According to CBC News, the Islamophobic hate group launched an aggressive campaign and spread misinformation to manipulate residents into voting against building the Muslim cemetery.

The racist, far-right group La Meute harassed refugees as well as Indigenous activists earlier this month and are strongly against multiculturalism in Canada.

Disappointed by the results of the referendum, Premier Philippe Couillard has vowed to find a way to build the cemetery and will be working with members of Quebec's Muslim community to set things right.
