The assault against Khawlah, a student at Pauline Johnson Junior Public School in Scarborough, is being condemned by leaders from all three levels of government as unrepresentative of Canadian values.

"I feel confused, scared and terrified".

Toronto police commended Khawlah for the way she had handled the incident.

"I didn't feel comfortable about what was going on".

Afterwards she and her brother joined a group of other students also walking to school, for safety, before being separated from the group and each other at an intersection. "Canada is an open and welcoming country, and incidents like this can not be tolerated".

Toronto District School Board spokesman Ryan Bird says staff contacted police and the girl's parents shortly after she arrived at school.

Norm Kelly, the area's city councillor, responded to the incident by saying there was "no place in Canadian society for hate crime - whether large or small", adding, "I'll be asking my followers to send any tips they may have to police".

Reacting to the attack, Noman said: "Sadly, someone insulted me by cutting my hijab two times". "It does not represent who we are [as Canadians]", Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne said in a Twitter message in response to the attack.
