Edmonton's Muslim community urges Canada to open doors to more refugees
Edmonton Muslims calling on the federal government to allow more Syrian refugees into Canada launched an awareness campaign at the Al-Rashid Mosque Friday.
"The idea here is to collect as many names and take those names to our government and let them know that as Canadians, we've always been humanitarian and want to see more done from our government," said organizer Aumer Assaf.
The Islamic Family and Social Services along with the Edmonton Mennonite Centre have already welcomed 24 refugees from Syria, said spokesman Ayub Umergy.
