Avery Haines, a reporter for CityNews in Toronto, was taking her son to hockey practice Sunday morning when she saw a peculiar sign on a front lawn.
The sign reads:
I have 1 question, Members of the muslim community.
Are you sorry for The slaughter of innocent People By Whom represent your Religious Beliefs???
Haines noted the home was in a diverse area of Toronto, near a mosque.
Haines then knocked on the door to ask the couple inside more about the sign.
The woman's husband then came out to say they condemn the acts "these ISIS groups and these fundamentalist are doing."
In a third video, the woman said that although she knows refugees themselves are fleeing ISIS, Canada needs to be careful about who is let into the country.
Reaction on Twitter has been mixed, with some defending the couple's right to free speech and others criticizing their message.
For her part, Haines tweeted that she was "simply curious" about why they chose to put up the sign.
