An arsonist ineffectively attacked a Mount Dennis area mosque last night in an attack that was probably unrelated to the arson at the Masonic Lodge in Weston.
Police and Toronto Fire were called to the Islamic education centre on Weston Road near Humber Blvd N around 11:30 last night to deal with a “small fire” on the roof “that appears to have been deliberately set”.

The damage to the roof was minor and the centre was open for business today. They released a statement that said, “We are pleased to see officials taking the matter very seriously, and we would like to thank them for their service and dedication.”
The attack on the mosque happened after the arsonist allegedly responsible for the attack on the Weston Masonic Temple was arrested. The police say the two attacks are unrelated.
