After the historic results of June 7, we will be seeing many new faces in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario.
Muslim Link would like to introduce you to some of the new Muslim Canadian Members of Provincial Parliament we hope to be hearing great things from over the course of their political careers.
In order to help our readers get to know these MPPs better, we have compiled some videos about the candidates and interviews they have participated in, so readers can become more familiar with their lives and work.
As you may be aware, our neighbourhood, Herongate, is currently undergoing the largest eviction campaign in Canada. We are being mass evicted, our affordable townhouses destroyed and our community torn apart. This is a gross violation of human rights.
My name is Iman Berry. I was recently selected as one of thirty youth in a national competition with hundreds of Canada's top leaders to represent our great nation on an international trade mission in China. I will be participating in this mission through Global Vision a Non-Profit organization aimed at teaching Canadian youth skills they will need to succeed in the global economy. Delegates were selected for their ability to lead, communicate effectively, work in a team and most importantly their dedication to their community and country.
