Never a tougher time for Muslim youth, local leaders say
by Dylan Robertson
Calgary's young Muslims are facing an unprecedented level of scrutiny, as ongoing debates around terrorism leave them feeling judged and under pressure.
Scores of Muslim youth gathered Wednesday morning for the Calgary Muslim Youth Summit, where they were asked to exchange ideas to "keep all Canadians safe and secure without marginalizing Muslim communities."
The event featured a closed-door workshop in which federal Public Safety officials discussed how young people can respond if concerned about their peers.
