Watch LIVE September 18: Young, Canadian and Muslim - Making Our Ballots Count!

On October 19th, 2015, Canadians across the country will take to the polls to vote 338 representatives into federal office. Canadian Muslims, members of a growing and diverse group in this country, will be doing so as well. However, despite the fact that Muslim communities have existed in Canada for many years now, a number of young Canadian Muslims report an increasing sense of alienation and dissatisfaction with the system. 

In recognition of the need to highlight the voices of these youth, ‘Young, Canadian and Muslim: Making Our Ballots Count!’ was created by a concerned group of young people.  The debate will take place Friday, September 18th in Toronto, starting at 6:30PM ET. Watch LIVE below!
