(September 18, 2015) – Young Toronto Muslims hosted a federal election debate at the Aga Khan Museum in North York on Friday evening.

The debate featured candidates from the Greater Toronto Area representing each of the four major parties.

The debaters were Karim Jivraj, Conservative Candidate for University-Rosedale, Andrew Cash, NDP candidate for Davenport, John McCallum, Liberal candidate for Markham-Thornhill and Adnan Shahbaz, Green Party candidate for Oakville North-Burlington.

“This is about the voiceless having a voice,” Zaib Shaikh told the capacity crowd in his welcome remarks.

Shaikh, best known for his role as Amaar Rashid, an imam in the CBC Television sitcom Little Mosque on the Prairie, urged the mostly young Muslims to “own up and be part of the conversation.”
