Voice of Muslim Youth – Provincial Election Engagement Session

Featuring 14 videos from the Sept 10th event featuring candidates Wali Farah (NDP), Alex Hill (Green Party), and Yasir Naqvi (Liberal Party) [the Conservative candidate was unable to attend at the last minute due to illness].

The 1st Voice of Muslim Youth Provincial Election Engagement Session aimed at providing a platform for Muslim youth in Ottawa, Canada to become both politically engaged and voice the issues that matter and affect them. This event was non-partisan and invited candidates representing the four political parties running in the provincial election (but not all from the same riding).
