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.
Meet Kaleed Rasheed
Pakistani Canadian Kaleed Rasheed is the newly elected MPP for Mississauga-East Cooksville, representing the Progressive Conservative Party.
Meet Doly Begum

This interview is from when he ran representing the NDP in Etobicoke North in the 2016 Federal Election, but it will allow readers to learn more about Faisal Hassan's work before the election.
