Getting the Muslim youth vote out in Ontario

Wali Farah, running for the NDP in Ottawa-South, was one of the provincial election candidates called in to speak to Muslim youth in Ottawa.

Concerns have been raised about the lack of political engagement of Canadian youth. During the federal election, voting flash mobs at Canadian universities were seen as a way to get young voters excited and eager to vote.

Unfortunately, most efforts to engage youth have been initiated by groups and organizations that I feel do not reflect the ethno-cultural diversity of Canada's major cities. As an activist in Ottawa's Muslim communities who is passionate about civic engagement, I wanted to take a lead in addressing what I've seen as a lack of engagement among young Muslims of voting age.


Ontario school board democracy is on the chopping block

The Ontario government has released a list of 13 directives ordering the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) to make drastic changes to the role of school trustees, and clearing the way for closing up to 100 schools.

We have been down this road before.

When the Mike Harris government was attempting to impose its will on school boards across Ontario, it accused the trustees in Toronto and other cities of being "dysfunctional" if they resisted the Conservative directives.

Please help rabble.ca stop Harper's election fraud plan. Become a monthly supporter.

Moody's decision to downgrade Ontario's credit rating last week was manna from heaven to commentators and media pundits bristling at the notion that activist government could be making a comeback.

For years, pundits have kept governments in a straightjacket when it comes to spending, intimidating the public into believing that the deficit gods are vengeful and unforgiving, and that Greece is only a short hop, skip and a jump away.
