History was made in Monday night’s provincial election, according to Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall.

For the first time, a candidate who is Muslim has been elected to the provincial legislature.

Muhammad Fiaz will soon be sworn in as a Saskatchewan Party MLA for Regina Pasqua.

Fiaz, a small business operator who was born and raised in Pakistan, says he wants to represent all of his constituents, but also wants to be a role model for other recent immigrants.
