A Message from the President of MAC Assalamu Alaikum / Peace Be with You,
Elections are the lifeblood of democracies. History and current events both tell us that the ability to choose one''s government is a privilege that, once lost, is never easily regained. While that prospect - losing the right to choose our government - may seem remote in a country like ours, there remains only one way of earning the right to keep that privilege and that is to participate.
Voting within the Muslim community is reportedly traditionally confined to a small minority. Some analysts estimate that only 10-20% of Muslims vote in Federal elections. We need to change this.
So, on May 2nd, please ensure not only that you and your family are out and voting but also that your friends and neighbours also do so.
Wael M R Haddara, MD FRCPC
