The House of Commons justice committee on Tuesday voted to have the name and words of the man who killed more than 50 Muslims in a double mosque shooting in New Zealand earlier this year expunged from its record.

That comes one week after Conservative MP Michael Cooper read an excerpt of the shooter's 74-page manifesto into the record during a hearing as part of the committee's study of online hate.

In that hearing, Faisal Khan Suri, president of the Alberta Muslim Public Affairs Council, pointed to reports that Brenton Tarrant, the accused Christchurch shooter, as well as Alexandre Bissonnette, convicted of killing six people in a Quebec City mosque shooting, were influenced by extremist alt-right hate online.
