TORONTO, Sept. 16, 2015 /CNW/ - DawaNet's Project Civic Engagement is pleased to host an important national debate to discuss multiculturalism, immigration and topics that are important to young Muslim Canadians. Many topics are the same as those of many other Canadians; absence of job opportunities, rising income inequality, and concern over declining civil liberties. However, unique to this group is a concern over the intensification of Islamophobia in Canadian politics, Canada's international standing, women's rights, and national security.
The debate is being held in partnership with the National Council of Canadian Muslims (http://www.nccm.ca/) as well as the Canadian Muslim Vote (http://www.canadianmuslimvote.ca/)
The event will be live streamed across Canada to several hosted locations and will be made publicly available online at http://original.livestream.com/rabbletv
