(Publisher-Editor, Barakah, Simerg and Simergphotos)
In his piece dated October 23, 2019, the Editor-in-Chief of “The Muslim Link” published a comprehensive list of Muslims who were elected in the Canadian Federal Election that was held on October 21, 2019. In compiling the names and their profiles with some interesting facts as well as links to their social-media pages, the editor notes that “As the Editor in Chief, I always enjoy compiling these lists as I get to know more about quite interesting people and I get to learn more about what is happening in Canadian cities other than my own, which is the Nation’s Capital, Ottawa.”
Simerg is pleased to provide a link to Muslim Link’s fine on-line piece about the 12 Muslims who were elected in the Federal election. Ismailis Yasmin Ratansi and Arif Virani were re-elected in their ridings. They represented the Liberal Party, which fell short of forming a majority government during the 2019 elections.
