Ontario Premier fasts in solidarity with Muslims


Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne joined Muslims in fasting on Wednesday, June 22nd and then took part in the Iftar (fast-breaking meal) with the community at the Sayeda Khadija Centre in Mississauga.

“I am honored to participate in the fast with you,” said Premier Wynne.

“3:30 am is a long time ago,” she said referring to the time when the fast began. “The devotion in Ramadan is not easy.”

“Ramadan is a reflection on giving to those in need,” added the Premier.


Muslims fast from dawn to sunset in Ramadan, which is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar.   Ramadan began on June 6th and will continue until July 5th.
