Hawzah News Agency - (Edmonton - Canada) - An Edmonton mosque is among 100 across Canada that are launching a campaign to mobilize Muslim voters this Thanksgiving weekend to get out and vote during advance polls.

The Rahma Mosque, home of the Muslim Association of Canada and located at 6104 172 St., is part of 100 mosques in six provinces and territories that will encourage Muslim voters to get out during the advance polls.

“As the Muslim Association of Canada, we believe in our responsibility for encouraging people to be active in the community as well as take their role at being active citizens and participating in making this country a better place to live in and choosing the best leadership for our nation,” said Tamir Ali, an imam at the Rahma Mosque.
